Bandshee – Curse Of The Bandshee



Bandshee – Curse Of The Bandshee
Self-released – 2022
Rock, Seventies, Stoner, Prog, Psych
Rated: ***

Louisville, Kentucky will always have a special place in my heart. And that spot will now also be populated by the three (or actually four) that go by the name of Bandshee. Rough around the edges, their first five-track EP, Curse Of The Bandshee holds a lot of promise, a lot of fire, and a whole lot of woodwind. Which is one of the most alluring aspects of this retro sounding release. Their use of those woodwinds gives these five tracks their very own vintage soul, and something extra. Which you can also state about those lead vocals by Romana Bereneth. Some of her vocals are so zealous and stormy, it sounds like they might at one point indeed put a curse on you. Those two elements do have the tendency to make you focus less on that damn fine drum work, and great guitars. Which is something often happens when there are razor sharp vocals at play. But everything is done with so much conviction and energy, that soon enough you are shouting along and screeching along with the Bandshee.
