Unisonic have been in the star holes for three years. First gigs at festivals in the Czech Republic, Japan and Sweden explored the field and the recent recruitment of Kai Hansen (ex-Helloween, Gamma Ray) as second guitarist and songwriter increased expectations for their debut. A real German metal supergroup is now waiting to take off: with the rhythm crew of Pink Cream 69 (Dennis Ward and Kosta Zafiriou), the ex-Helloween creative team Hansen and singer Michael Kiske plus the ex-Krokus-/Gotthard-/Asia guitarist Mandy Meyer. It goes without saying that there are some echoes of the bands mentioned in the sound of Unisonic. The Helloween of the late eighties and early nineties, however, can be seen in several tracks. On the other hand, the quintet has so much independence that one can without doubt say that the band already appears bigger on their debut than the individual members with their respective influences. The melodic metal heart is especially happy that Kiske is doing and singing what he does best again.
