The Unity: The Unity

The Unity are a new hard rock/melodic power metal act comprised of Gamma Ray members Michael Ehré (drums) and Henjo Richter (guitar), plus Gianba Manenti (Vocals), Stef E (Guitar), Sascha Onnen (Keyboards), and Jogi Sweers (Bass). Their self-titled debut for SPV/Steamhammer contains a dozen songs packed with plenty of muscle, class, and emotion, led by Manenti's powerful vocal attack and a wealth of guitar firepower. Anthems appear left and right, kicking off with the ultra catchy "Rise and Fall", as Manenti's Russell Allen-meets-Ronnie James Dio inspired vocals soar to the heavens over blistering arrangements. From there, it's one highlight after another, including the heavy yet melodic "Firesign". the proggy and quite doom laden "God of Temptation", the frantic "Close to Crazy", the crunchy, pinch harmonic melodic ripper "The Wishing Well", and the dramatic headbanger "Killer Instinct". Both Richter and Stef E deliver a wealth of super crunchy riffs and screaming solos, helped greatly by the stellar production, and Onnen's keyboards add a nice symphonic element throughout.

From top to bottom, this is a very strong debut from a new band that deliver the goods in a big way. If you have a soft spot for instantly memorable power metal with plenty of hard rock & prog elements, make sure you don't miss this one.
