Unisonic was form by Michael Kiske (ex-Helloween) and Dennis Ward (ex-Pink Cream 69) back in 2009. But it was until destiny decided to united the paths of Kiske and Kai Hansen (Gamma Ray, ex Helloween) during their collaboration on Tobias Sammet‘s Avantasia world tour in 2010. Both Kiske & Hansen realized the musical chemistry between them was still there more than 20 years after they left Helloween for different reasons, then they decided create music together once more. Unisonic is not a super metal project, is an established band that takes elements of hard rock and metal and put them into action with lyrics about real situations, and everyday’s life events.
The band released a mini album called Ignition back in January that was a tease of what was about to come in their first full length album self titled Unisonic. The album was release at the end of March in Japan, Latin American and Europe. The North American release will be in May 22nd.
Last week The Age Of Metal had the pleasure to talk with guitarist Kai Hansen about Unisonic, his role and expectations about the band, Gamma Ray, his take in power metal and the upcoming tours with Unisonic.
