German heavy metal/hard rock supergroup ”Unisonic", founded in November 10, 2009 by former Helloween singer Michael Kiske alongside Dennis Ward and Kosta Zafiriou from Pink Cream 69. Mandy Meyer, formerly in Asia and Gotthard was soon added to the line-up, while in 2011 the band was joined by Gamma Ray leader and one of the Helloween founders, Kai Hansen.
The band released the EP Ignition and their first studio album Unisonic in 2012. The EP For The Kingdom and the second album Light of Dawn came out in 2014. Both studio albums have scored high entries in several international music charts. Unisonic is the first full studio collaboration between Kiske and Hansen since Helloween's seminal albums Keeper of the Seven Keys, Pt. I and Pt. II.
The latest release "Light Of Dawn" is the second album. It was released on 1 August 2014, with cover art credited to Martin Haeusler. The majority of the songs were written by Dennis Ward, with further input from Michael Kiske and Mandy Meyer. A music video was filmed for the song ”Exceptional”(todays tune). This sounds really good, reminds me of the old days with Helloween and Kiske’s vocals is amazing.
The album was released in four different configurations:
- Standard CD featuring 12 tracks
- Deluxe digipak edition CD which contains 13 tracks
- Gatefold double vinyl (also feat. 13 tracks plus a download code)
- A strictly limited boxset.
The boxset included a Exclusive 7inch Vinyl single.
A1. Exceptional (Karaoke version)
