Curt, sorry if I confused you, I was not disparaging Van Canto.
In fact, I liked this and their other music (I had also seen the Wishmaster video, thank you) so much that I plan to purchase their albums as soon as I have the means to do so.
They are obviously VERY talented vocalists in their own right, and their music is definitely NOT something that your average rube can duplicate.
It's just that formerly being a VERY dedicated Metallica fan, seeing something so unusual done with their music induced a large bout of cognitive dissonance
So at first I was amused, then alarmed, then finally to enjoy what I was experiencing.
Considering that, I just HAD to share it with all of you.
