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.
