Banshee - Mindslave

Recommended Posts

Funny story about Banshee, a couple weeks ago on my drive to work, I pass a bar which I have driven by for the last 10 years or so.

On a Budwieser coming event sign it say this Sat. Banshee playing live. Thinking it was just a cover band, not the "Cry in The Night/ Race Against Time" group. I kinda just forgot about until I passed the sign again the following Monday. So, I checked their Facebook, sure enough they played Freddie's Bar in Bristol, Pa. that Sat. night. It's a small place maybe could hold 150 people at most. But, it would have been being cool to check the show out.

Hopefully it's a cheap cd-r like the reissues they were selling on their website! :)

 

 

Exactly! I want to hear it as well since their other 3 albums are killer but WTF with the CD-R crap?

I was being sarcastic. The cd reissues they were selling on their website were actually cd-r's. Then the band said something about how they would replace them with silver pressed discs but then disappeared.

I've listened to a few tracks from this one and it sounds really good! I didn't expect to like it as the band are described as 'Power Metal' on several websites, but I didn't detect any of the cheesey choruses I hate so much in the genre. Just really good straight-ahead HM with great guitars and vocals. Love it.

No one else...?

 

Can't find any reviews of this one (except the one on a Belgian site linked on the band's Facebook page). Wonder why this one's getting so little coverage? The songs sound monstrously good! :banger:

My mate, JamesEagle (hereafter referred to as 'that bastard'), played me some tracks at the weekend ... I have to admit, I liked what I heard ...

You know it makes sense. ;)

 

Actually, don't worry, the deed is done. You may be seeing that CD sooner than you think..... :whistle:

Another CD bought on the strength of listening to songs online that has turned out to be quite disappointing. It's not a bad album by any means and has a few good songs, but there are no killer tracks that I'll be keen to listen to many times. Pretty average overall.

Is this the same Banshee that releashed the 1988 song Sleeping All Alone and do they still sound like that era?Also did that 88 song chart?

Are you maybe thinking of the band Bonfire?? I believe it was a song off the Fireworks album around '87-88.

This one had completely gone under my radar but I must admit that the song online is really NU for my taste, heavy riffs, too much distortion.... damn those modern influences...

    • "Cry Baby Cry" by Aldo Nova  
    • Ah sweet, I've been meaning to look into audio file editors myself since the tracks aren't split correctly on some of the music I purchased digitally. Which editors do you use?
    • I think my favorite song by them is either Love Kills or Ecstasy
    • I know, right? I loved the song until I got to the part with the noise. I guess the noise was supposed to replicate an effect on the record where the noise wouldn't stop until you picked the needle up. While kind of neat on the record, I think the other versions of the album would've been better off without it.
    • Some guy created a video on YouTube saying Chez Kane should be the new singer, but she has shot that down as well.
    • New album 'Kings Of The Revolution' out June 14th.
    • I really should use one of my editing software to have an MP3 without it. I separated the two versions of Gone again by PC69 years ago, but for some reason never edited this. Should be able to cut most of that 3 mins and fade the song out.
    • From Lions Pride Music: Nightfox emerged from the musical landscape of Trondheim, Norway, as a dynamic fusion of synthwave origins morphing seamlessly into the hard-hitting realms of 1980s-inspired hard rock. Founded in 2012, the band initially embarked on a journey rooted in synthwave aesthetics before embracing the electrifying energy of hard rock around 2017.   Driven by a relentless passion for the roaring riffs and blazing guitar solos reminiscent of the golden era of rock, Nightfox found its true voice within the spirited soundscape of 80s rock. What began as a synthwave experiment organically evolved into a full-fledged hard rock powerhouse, propelled by the inherent inclination of their compositions towards rock's anthemic essence.   The band's evolution culminated in the creation of a diverse repertoire of instrumentals, laying the foundation for their debut EP slated for release in 2018. However, personal circumstances necessitated a postponement, prompting a pivotal realization within the band that vocals would elevate their sonic tapestry to new heights.   Between 2019 and 2020, Nightfox embarked on an intensive songwriting and recording spree, breathing life into their compositions through the addition of poignant lyrics and powerful vocals delivered by a seasoned hired singer. As the album "White Cobra" began to take shape, the band opted to release their songs sequentially, with the debut single "Ride the Sky Tonight" igniting a spark that caught the attention of Lions Pride Music record label.   With Lions Pride Music extending a record deal, Nightfox found themselves propelled into the limelight, abandoning their original release strategy in favor of a cohesive album experience. In June 2021, the world bore witness to the electrifying debut of "White Cobra," a sonic odyssey that garnered critical acclaim, widespread airplay, and sold-out pressings within months of its release. Buoyed by the success of their debut, Nightfox set their sights on the creation of their sophomore album, "Chrome Tiger," a testament to their unwavering commitment to the legacy they've forged. Scheduled for a worldwide release on August 30, 2024, "Chrome Tiger" promises to further solidify Nightfox's position as torchbearers of the hard rock resurgence, captivating audiences with their infectious energy and unbridled passion for the genre.   Nighfox is: Vocals: Felipe Del Valle Briceño All Instruments & Programming: Erik Winther
