Bio:

Banshee is a metal band that was formed in 1986 in the American Midwest. Although they shared the image and sound with the glam/metal scene of the 80s, their music fully shares the elements of melodic power metal: catchy guitar riffs, eclectic drums and bass, powerful guitar solos, and intense vocals.Banshee, a melodic power metal band from the Midwest, was formed in the spring of 1986. Made up of members from the popular Mid-West touring act LICK (Tommy Lee & Chuck Hopkins), Terry Dunn of Kansas City-based FRODO, GRANMAX, and Kent Burnham from Kansas City-based CRYPT KEEPER. By the fall of 1986, they released their first EP entitled Cry in the Night. Hopkins left shortly thereafter to pursue other projects in L.A. and was replaced by local Kansas City bassist Bill Westfall.In 1988, Metal Blade Records re-released Cry In The Night and included the song "We Want You" on a compilation record, Metal Massacre No. 9.Later that year, the band released their first full-length album, Race Against Time, on Atlantic Records' Titanium label, although their relationship was brief.In 1992, the band self-released their second full-length album, Take 'Em By Storm, with members separating shortly thereafter.Reunion shows were played in 1999, 2000, and later in 2008. In 2008, a deal was negotiated with BlastZone Entertainment Group to provide worldwide distribution for a digitally remastered Take 'Em By Storm and saw distribution reach on Amazon.com, iTunes, and Wal-Mart, with the re-release of the other albums following.In 2012, the band released their fourth studio album Mindslave on Snowblind Records. The album featured vocalist George Call (ASKA, Violent Storm, Omen), original bassist Chuck Hopkins, and drummer Marty Schiermann. In June 2012 in preparation for the upcoming tour, Hopkins and Schiermann were both unable to tour with the band and Mika Horiuchi (ex-Falling In Reverse and Celador) from Los Angeles, California stepped up on bass, while Vinnie E. Parma from Dallas, Texas took the role of drums.In 2014, Bill Westfall returned as the band begins work on the follow up to Mindslave.Paul Berrian joined as their new drummer in late 2014.In 2015, Bill Westfall left Banshee to concentrate on Kansas City metal band, Death By Diesel.

Album:

Recorded on the return of Haley's Comet through Friday the thirteenth '85-'86.This absolutely phenomenal power metal EP was released in 1988, and instantly secured a top spot in my rotation upon my acquiring it. Excellent, heavy, and raucous right the way through, I was talking about this little gem with every opportunity to every metalhead I came across for months after hearing it. Banshee is yet another awesome USPM band in the vein of Hellion, Jag Panzer and the like. This is their debut release, and the remainder of their catalogue consists of two full-lengths.The EP’s opener, the anthemic and thundering ‘We Want You’ a a ravishing anthem showcasing some shouting vocals in the vein of a cleaner Armed Force. Lead vocals are strong, yet this isn’t the strong show you’ll be getting of them that you do in the Iron Maidenish next track, ‘Back Your Way’ another strong one with perhaps an even stronger and rougher chorus vocal. True quality. This one’s packed with screamish guitar solo action, and some strong vocal melody. The first two tracks are strongly ‘metallic’ with a slight departure being made to slower pace in the third. The fourth and fifth are excellent right the way through with ‘everything where it should be’ which pleases me as a genre fan. Banshee executes a distinct flavour of their own in particularly the 2nd and 4th and 5th tracks – definitely not ‘run of the mill’. The title track ‘Cry in the Night’ could be considered the highlight, but with strong material right the way through, it’s a little difficult to make that call.Overall a brilliantly strong EP - better than many I’ve heard in the last year, metal and otherwise. Four very strong tracks with a distinct USPM feel that really leaves you wanting more. Production values on this one are decent, with drums and bass mixed well. This band has a great name, and plays an awesome blend of mid 80’s metal. I thoroughly enjoy both the front a rear cover art, with a ‘spray-paint’ front graphic and ‘horror’ text song titles on the rear (Not to mention the awesome title of the EP itself. ‘Cry in the Night’ has everything you want in an 80’s metal title). These really add to the flavour and enjoyment in my books.
