Bio:

Banshee began as a heavy metal band in Kansas City formed by Terry Dunn, Chuck Hopkins, Tommy Lee Flood, and Kent Burnham. Flood and Hopkins, formerly of Omaha, Nebraska’s premiere heavy metal band, Lick, contributed thunderous bass and Dio-esque vocals. Dunn from Kansas City based Frodo, provided scorching lead guitar reminiscent of the late Randy Rhoads and complemented Banshee with Kent Burnham’s rapid fire drumming.Banshee quickly became a nationwide name in the metal genre of the late 1980's with their EP entitled, “Cry in the Night” on Metal Blade Records. It was followed by the stellar “Race Against Time” LP, with Bill Westfall replacing Hopkins on bass. Due to the rise of grunge and the decline of metal, Atlantic decided against renewal of Banshee’s contract. “Take ‘Em By Storm” was released in the 1990’s, but unfortunately, was not widely promoted, as was the case with many other metal acts.After several years off, the band briefly reformed and performed at reunion shows and festivals throughout 2008 before going their separate ways."Mindslave", the band's 4th record was released in July 2012 and brought Chuck Hopkins back to the lineup on bass and as album producer. The group embarked on a well received summer tour that year, of the United States. It is available now on BansheeRocks.com, iTunes, Amazon MP3, Spotify, Rhapsody and most digital retailers around the world. Mindslave will be re-released on a collectible picture disk with download card on Visionary Noise in the near future.Banshee today is comprised of the masterful genius of Terry Dunn both composing and on guitars along with the powerhouse vocalist George Call (ASKA, ex-OMEN).Pestered relentlessly in 2018 by Groove and Vibe Fest promoter, Steve Susman, and Micah Jackson of Visionary Noise Records, Banshee made a triumphant return to the stage and signed a new recording deal with Visionary Noise in July 2018. Banshee released their 5th album, entitled, “The Madness” in July 2019.

Album:

Banshee are a legendary US Power Metal band formed by guitarist Terry Dunn, who remains the main man behind the band to this day. The band was formed in 1986 and only a few months after they released their "Cry In the Night" EP, which was picked up by Metal Blade Records in 1988 for release. They also included the song "We Want You" on the Metal Massacre 9 compilation.By the end of '88 the band's popularity had become such that they gained the attention of Atlantic Records. "Race Against Time" was released on Atlantic Records in 1988. Unfortunately the band was lumped in with the hair metal bands at the time, despite the fact that they had a much tougher, heavy metal sound. It wasn't until 1992 that we were given new music from the band. They released their independent album "Take 'Em By Storm", with the band parting ways shortly after.The band got back together for reunion shows in 1999, 2000 and again in 2008. It wasn't until 2012 that 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. The album was a return to the heavier sound of "Cry in the Night." In fact, guitarist and songwriter Terry Dunn said that "Mindslave is the album that should have followed "Cry in the Night". In fact, it's much heavier than "Cry In the Night". According to Scott Waters own NoLifeTilMetal review, "The music fits squarely into the US power metal camp while retaining all the melody and hooks that Banshee have always been known for. The sound is a bit tougher, there may be a bit more groove and the lyrics are a little darker than their past albums, but overall Banshee still fits in that classic American power metal pocket...The sound is built around heavy, over-driven guitars, pounding drums, thunderous bass, screaming vocals and, of course, wicked guitar solos. George Call is a fantastic vocalist and really gives this album a ton of charisma. Comparisons to Tony Martin (Black Sabbath) and Ronnie James Dio would not be far off.Terry Dunn had this to say, "Mindslave is a body of musical and lyrical work written between 2007 and 2012. The songs were influenced by life events I experienced and people in my life. I felt I needed to create an album that was the continuum of our EP, “Cry In The Night”. I always wanted Banshee to be heavier with more interesting lyrics and I achieved that with “Mindslave”, This would be my first attempt at writing lyrics for an album. I collaborated with George Call the singer on the record who did a amazing job. The songs are a bit darker but mesh well with the subject matter and lyrics. I feel that this is Banshee’s best work to date..." Unfortunately the album never saw release on vinyl and was a very limited CD run that has been out of print and impossible to find.
