Game of Thrones has got a lot to answer for. Well that and Lord Of The Rings. High Fantasy is a fertile Heavy Metal breeding ground and acapella metallists Van Canto draw on it for their tilt at epicness, Voices Of Fire.
A proper concept album, telling a proper story. Theatrical little spoken word interludes are delivered with a suitably olde worlde gravitas to set the scene and bridge some epic symphonic metal tunes that tell of maidens, dragons and all the other fantasy staples.
Pack your clean armour, we’re off to do battle. Expect ripped bodices and acts of derring-do.
