Banzai was along with Machiavel one of the symphonic progressive rock bands to come from Belgium in the 70's.

Their only album consisted of complex 70's symphonic progressive rock as typical and traditional as it possibly can get. Main influences were clearly Focus, Yes, Genesis, Focus and some Gentle Giant. Three of the five tracks are pure instrumentals. The mmelodic guitar-playing reminds a lot of Jan Akkerman, but the whole band sounded like accomplished musicians. A few passages also include some orchestration.

"Hora Nata" is derivative and not very original in any way, but it's still quite solid stuff.
