Passengers In Panic self-describe as a Heavy Metal Greek Traditional Folk Metal band based in Athens, founded in December 2019. The dynamic of the band, following some changes, has now been shaped, with Yohanna (Ioanna Galani) on vocals, Lefteris Christou on bass (ex-Inactive Messiah, ex-Womb Of Maggots), Lela Argyri on guitar (Rocket Queens), and Phoivos Andriopoulos on drums.

Their debut album, titled "Leap Of Faith," was released in 2020. Their various influences compose a sound with progressive and primarily Greek elements, as well as broader traditional influences. Instruments such as the Macedonian gaida, kaval, laouto, violin, and of course, the daouli, create a traditional atmosphere, uniting all the pieces together. From the first listen, it is apparent that the inspiration stems from human experiences and various situations faced daily, including toxic relationships, human violence, the struggle for survival, injustices, as well as social issues, discovered through the music and lyrics of Passengers In Panic.

In 2022, the band performed not only in Athens but also in cities across Greece and abroad, at various major Metal festivals like the Gothoom Open Air Festival in Slovakia, where they shared the stage with many well-known bands from the global metal scene, including Kataklysm, Suffocation, Draconian, Memoriam, Moribund Oblivion, Aeonian Sorrow, and many more. In March 2024, they played in Bucharest for the Psychosounds Metal Ladies Night.
