Lima, Peru's ElCuartelDelMetal.net recently conducted an interview with UNISONIC, the band featuring former HELLOWEEN vocalist Michael Kiske and Kai Hansen (GAMMA RAY, HELLOWEEN) alongside guitarist Mandy Meyer (ASIA, GOTTHARD and KROKUS), bassist Dennis Ward and drummer Kosta Zafiriou (both of Germany's PINK CREAM 69). You can now watch the chat below.
UNISONIC's self-titled debut studio album was released in North America on May 22 via Eagle Rock imprint Armoury Records.
"Unisonic" was recorded at ICP Studios in Brussels, Belgium. The CD — which features 11 tracks, plus a bonus live version of HELLOWEEN classic "I Want Out", only available on the domestic edition, and cover art by Martin Häusler (MEAT LOAF, GOTTHARD, HELLOWEEN, MOTÖRHEAD) — marks the first full-length musical union between Kiske and Hansen in 23 years!
UNISONIC released its debut EP, "Ignition" on January 27 via earMUSIC/Edel. The effort includes the track "Unisonic" plus one demo song and a cover version of the HELLOWEEN classic "I Want Out", recorded live on October 15 at last year's edition of the Loud Park festival at Saitama Super Arena, a multi-purpose indoor arena located in Saitama City, Japan.
Hansen's position in GAMMA RAY is unaffected by his involvement with UNISONIC.
