Unisonic's self titled debut album is certainly a quality release. The album is filled with musical variety, excellent vocals, solid guitar work and several unforgettable songs. It is not an epic magnum opus, but a fresh melodic hard rock release that just hits the mark.

Unisonic is comprised of vocalist Michael Kiske (ex-Helloween, Place Vendome), guitarist Kai Hansen (ex-Helloween, Gamma Ray), guitarist Mandy Meyer (ex-Krokus, ex-Gotthard) and bassist Dennis Ward together with drummer Kosta Zafiriou (Pink Cream 69, Place Vendome). By looking at the names of Kiske and Hansen one could mistakenly expect a power metal release, but Unisonic are rather focused on performing melodic hard rock with metal and AOR influences.

The album starts with the self-titled song, which is surely the perfect opener. "Unisonic" is an up-tempo power metal number with a dose of hard rock. Heavy riffing, an addictive groove, several guitar leads and a twin guitar solo, a good chorus backed by double bass, a confident vocal performance and you have the first Unisonic classic. This is the fastest and probably the heaviest song on offer, so don't expect the rest of the album to follow this path.

"Souls Alive" sounds like a cross between hard rock and melodic metal. The song is rather mid paced but still faster compared to other tracks. Things start with a bombastic intro backed by power metal like guitar leads and keyboards. The verses and chorus are owned by Kiske's melodic singing and some solid riffs. The song also contains a great guitar solo and a slow atmospheric part, with some emotional lower range vocals.

"We Rise" is a definite highlight.

When I saw this, I was so excited - I love the classic 80's and 90's Helloween, so when I saw that Kai Hansen and Michael Kiske were doing an album together I ordered the EP and the album immediately.

How disappointing...

To explain:
The music is very slick and very well produced, and there is indeed a variety of (rock) styles in the songs. However, apart from the title song 'Unisonic', they are all very soul-less - yes, the playing is flawless, and the singing is what you would expect from Mr Kiske, but there is just no FEELING to it all. Regarding the 'Unisonic' track - this is also on the EP (Ignition - Mini Album) - I suspect it was written before the rest of the album as it definitely has a different feeling to the other songs.

If you, like me, think of buying this because you are a classic Helloween fan, listen to samples first... For the disappointment factor I would give this 1 star - but as it is actually a decent enough euro-metal album, I'll give it 3.

When news broke of a reunion between Kai Hansen and Michael Kiske, the metal community took a breath, held it, and dug out their old Keepers records to remind themselves of what Unisonic had in store. Upon purchase, most probably listened to the first five tracks and tried to get their money back, unable to comprehend that after twenty five years the music these guys decided to make didn't sound at all like what they made when they were young men. I mean, just imagine it. The horror! But naturally, this wasn't going to be packed full of songs like "March Of Time", and if you're a fan of recent Kiske material you will understand that and take the record for what it is. Hell, you might even enjoy it.

This is exactly what fans of Gamma Ray and Place Vendome will expect from a modern Kiske and Hansen collaboration. It's certainly the liveliest artifact Kiske has lent his voice to in recent years, and he shines here in a way he hasn't since his heyday. You can hear Hansen's song writing contributions a mile off, but mostly these tracks revolve around Kiske with particular emphasis on the vocal lines. The only real clunker is "No One Ever Sees Me", the album's parting ballad. Beyond that, Unisonic deliver hit after hit. The silly "Never Too Late" recalls an old Gamma Ray tune, "Time To Break Free", while "Never Change Me" is a radio-friendly AOR attempt that gets the foot tapping from the get-go. "Renegade" is the most metal thing here, with a chorus that grasps at power metal and almost reaches it, and the now infamous opener "Unisonic" throttles at full speed, a triumphant anthem that will slay the live stage.

There are a couple of questionable moments that take us from familiar territory. "Star Rider" requires a number of listens before developing a taste for it.

I accept that it is not a return to early Helloween, but I don't think that they wanted it to be either. It is however an excellent album and I hope that they make another pretty soon. 5 stars is the only score for this one. Simply well done.

Probably more hard rock than metal in places, but some excellent musicianship and some wonderful tunes. No weak song on the album at all. To me, the weakest song is the title track (and still a strong one at that), but others seem to love that one the best.

If you want your hard rock/metal in a melodic flavour with wonderful clean vocals and some sing along choruses, then this is the album to you. If you were expecting Gamma Ray then this is not it, but then why would Kai want to versions of Gamma Ray?

This is not the heaviest album you could ever own, but I highly recomend it. Not sure what they could have done better really.

Very good on a first listen, even better on a second. A CD that will stay in the CD player for some time.
