With serious metal credentials, Vante brings together five legendary musicians Brian Troch, Scott McClellan, Rev Jones, Chris Moore, and Jeff Tortora who have toured the globe and recorded with mega metal acts such as Hammeron, Cyclone Temple, Michael Schenker Group, Steelheart, and Tony Martin.

Vante’s self-titled debut album was released on Dark Star Records/Sony/Universal in early June 2022. Channeling their outrage at the mass apathy that has created a chaotic, out of control world, Vante delivers a taste of hope for rebirth into a more loving and compassionate world.

On the This Friday’s Guest DJ show, Vante’s vocalist Brian Troch will play his favorite Hard Rock/Heavy Metal tracks for you. After his playlist, we’ll play a handful of tracks off their self-titled album.

The Friday Guest DJ Hour Show airs at the following times:

15:00 and 21:00 Central Europe
9:00 am and 3:00 pm US East Coast
6:00 am and 12:00 pm US West Coast

Find ways to tune in here.
