A great album and the extra live CD makes it an even getter purchase.

This is the third album from German/Italian band The unity. The band features former members of Firewind and Gamma Ray – former Gamma Ray members Henjo Richter (guitars) and Michael Ehré (drums) along with Gianbattista Manenti (vocals), Jogi Sweers (bass) and Sascha Onnen (keyboards).

It’s a great blend of sounds. You’ve got some really heavy influences so for exdample “Guess how I hate this” starts with some really nice heavy guitars and pounding drums, and “Scenery of hate” is a great heavy track, then there’s the more melodic side of things that includes songs such as “Line and sinker”. It’s a hard album to give a short description of – it’s mainly hard rock but there’s also metal, power metal, melodic rock and more.

Check out “We don’t need them here”…

It’s a great album, ok there are one or two tracks I don’t like as much as the others but the majority of the album is great. There’s also a bonus CD with five live tracks which is a nice addition. The Unity may be a band that’s new to a lot of you but it’s a band that’s definitely well worth a listen.

“Pride” will be released on 13th March 2020
