Unisonic 2011

UNISONIC´s music is very versatile and shows a broad approach to heavy rock, but never misses the power and strong, sticking melodies that made all the members famous in the metal scene in the first place. Says singer Michael Kiske“It feels great to finally bring the band to the studio and record the songs we´ve been working on for some time. We took our time to grow as a real band, but it definitely was worth it and we are very proud of the result!
Bassist/producer Dennis Ward adds: “We have a bunch of very strong songs and can´t wait until people can hear them. Everyone in the band is looking very positive into the future.”

Many fans all over the world have been anticipating this for years, now it
comes true – Michael Kiske and Kai Hansen teamed up again, Kai joined
UNISONIC!

Michael Kiske: “After so many years of abstinence I had a lot of fun doing
my first live shows with Unisonic in summer 2010, so I agreed to do the
short world tour with Avantasia. It was a great experience to be on stage
with all those great artist, but with Kai it was something different: We
instantly felt the magic again and had a lot of fun together on and off
stage. We both realized that we want to be together in band again. He was
interested in the open musical concept of Unisonic and finally asked me if
he can join the band. I talked to my bandmates and they all felt great about
it. His talent as a guitarist and songwriter is an enrichment for the band
and we are looking forward to his contribution for the music of Unisonic.”

Kai Hansen will stay a member of his band Gamma Ray and play all scheduled
shows. Currently he is writing songs with the Unisonic guys for the long
anticipated debut album, which is planned to be released at the end of 2011.
