Today, we turn our attention to the fierce and promising hardcore thrash metal band, Banshee, hailing from New York, USA. In this review, we delve into their latest album, 'Events Occur in Real Time,' exploring its character, style, story, potential, and more.

Banshee is a band that caught my attention with their powerful and progressive/hardcore/screamo/thrash metal sound. Their album, 'Events Occur in Real Time,' released as an EP in 2020, showcases their talents. While relatively new to the scene, Banshee has wasted no time in making their mark. Starting with the single "Sunflower" in 2020, followed by "Lizard Conditions" and the EP 'Events Occur in Real Time,' Banshee has demonstrated their artistic prowess. Take a moment to listen to their music as you continue reading.

As a music enthusiast who appreciates the authenticity of art, particularly in metal music, I often find myself disappointed with the trendy hardcore/screamo/metalcore/punkcore bands that saturate the scene. With Banshee, however, my suspicions were immediately dispelled. Their self-proclaimed style of Metal/Hardcore initially raised questions, but upon listening to the album, I was pleasantly surprised.

Banshee embraces a traditional and old-school approach to their compositions, structure, and grooves. Their music incorporates elements from thrash metal legends like Slayer, Metallica, Gojira, and Pantera. The album exudes an exceptional level of aggression, progressive elements, non-standard song structures, intelligent songwriting, and displays advanced musicianship. The powerful instrumentation and dynamic energy reminiscent of Pantera and Slayer resonate strongly with me. It is truly satisfying to discover a new band like Banshee who captures the essence of metal music.

Technically, 'Events Occur in Real Time' boasts exceptional standards in every aspect. Although the details of the recording and production remain unknown to me, I can confidently state that this album delivers one of the most gratifying metal sounds I have encountered. The overall sound is clear, atmospheric, dynamic, and aggressively executed. The vocal mix, reminiscent of Tom Araya and Joe Duplantier, is particularly impressive and sets Banshee apart from their peers. The album is a testament not only to its outstanding sound quality but also to the band's unique identity.

Considering all these factors, I am thoroughly impressed by Banshee. Their impeccably produced album has the potential to captivate audiences and leave a lasting impact when performed live. The combination of exceptional sound and a powerful live performance has proven successful for thrash/heavy metal bands since the 80s, and Banshee has the potential to follow suit in their own old-school fashion.
