Considering that Unisonic brought ex-Helloween singer Michael Kiske back to the metallic realm, one can only be happy about the existence of this German-Swiss-Greek-American troupe. Because Kiske definitely belongs in the first league of vocalists, who cavort in the metal environment. At least on a par with Geoff Tate or Bruce Dickinson. "Light Of Dawn" is the band's second complete album, featuring Helloween founder and Gamma Ray guitarist Kai Hansen, ex-Asia/Krokus/Gotthard man Mandy Meyer and the Pink Cream 69 rhythm crew with drummer Kosta Zafiriou and bassist Dennis Ward. Ward, who has also made a name for himself as a producer in recent years, also took on this job at Unisonic. "Light Of Dawn" is not necessarily the increase of the 2012 debut, but an album that can be listened to from beginning to end and is varied. Kiske's high and powerful vocals give the melodic metal tracks an unmistakable face and make ballads like "Blood" shine.
