Video Premiere: VAN CANTO's 'Melody'

The official video for "Melody", the new single from the German a cappella metal band VAN CANTO, can be seen below. The song is taken from the group's seventh studio album, "Trust In Rust", which will be released on August 10 via Napalm Records.

VAN CANTO comments: "'Melody' wraps up what VAN CANTO means to the band members: lots of voices, dynamic changes and drums, a positive message and — a lot of melodies that hopefully will be joined by our fans when we play live."

Since 2006, they have brought pure vocal power to the metal world. Now made up of seven members, VAN VANTO's "Trust In Rust" covers a wide stylistic range, from melodic to bombastic, showcasing the band's takes on ballads, hard rock ballbreakers and speed metal anthems. Covers, ranging from HELLOWEEN's "Ride The Sky" (featuring HELLOWEEN's Kai Hansen) to AC/DC's "Hells Bells", give listeners a completely fresh glimpse at the vocal crew. The sound of "Trust In Rust" reflects VAN CANTO's varied experiences on the road with unbroken power and passion for the human voice in heavy metal.

VAN VANTO comments on the new album: "If you release seven albums in 12 years, you aren't able to rust. Nevertheless, the new album is rougher and more metal. It's a composite work of all seven bandmembers, full of new ideas but without losing the good old VAN CANTO style. We are still excited about what we are doing and believe in ourselves — 'Trust in Rust'!"
