Power of Metal.dk Review

Style: Melodic Rock
Release date: 30 March, 2012
Playing time: 55:26

Unisonic is off course the band that have brought Michael Kiske and Kai Hansen back together, but forget everything about Helloween... this has it's roots in AOR, melodic rock and classic rock. Imagine Place Vendome with a slight rockier edge and you should have an idea.

Musically we are served a solid and well played album, nothing extraordinary sticking out here, they are playing it a bit too safe on this, their debut album. Not that the outcome is bad, they are still ahead of most of the competition, but I really wanted them to reach for the stars from the get-go... they haven't quite done that.

But the star of the show and the thing that makes this interesting (sorry, Kai) is Michael Kiske. He proves once more that he hasn't forgotten how to rock, his pipes belongs among the best in the business and his performance makes this album something else. He shows that he can still bring it like no one else, and it is great to hear him using his full range once more.

Not the bomb many had expected, but still a good melodic rock album!
