Unisonic - New Label, Debut EP & Album Next Year

Unisonic - the new metal super group featuring Michael Kiske (vocals, ex-Helloween), Kai Hansen (guitars, Gamma Ray, ex Helloween), Mandy Meyer (guitars, ex-Gotthard, ex-Krokus), Dennis Ward (bass, Pink Cream 69) and Kosta Zafiriou (drums, Pink Cream 69) has signed a record contract with earMUSIC / Edel.
Drummer Kosta Zafiriou: "We had several promising labels being interested in Unisonic, but the enthusiasm of Max Vaccaro and his team convinced us that earMUSIC is the right company for us."

A first EP will be released in January 2012, followed by the band's debut album, which is planned for early spring. After the addition of Gamma Ray's Kai Hansen to the group's line-up early 2011, the band continued and implemented the songwriting process, assembling Kai's talent to write great anthemic rock songs in existing and new material.

The recordings for the album started at end of September at ICP studios in Brussels/Belgium. 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. We took our time to grow as a band, but it was definitely worth it and we are very proud of the result."

Bassist/producer Dennis Ward: "We have a bunch of very strong songs and can't wait until people can hear them. Everyone in the band is now looking even more positive into the future."
