I was beginning to wonder whether Unisonic was just another one-off project. Cut an album, have a small tour, hit a few European festivals, and then quietly fade into the sunset. Apparently not as the band is back with a new EP, For The Kingdom to whet your appetite for their second full-length release, Light of Dawn, coming in August.
There's not much detail to get into for this EP. There's six songs, two new songs For The Kingdom and You Come Undone, the former will be on the new LP, and four live songs all from the first album: Unisonic, Never Too Late, Star Rider, and Souls Alive.
As for the two new songs, you have more of Unisonic's melodic hard rock twisted with metal. For The Kingdom veers more toward power metal, and could remind some of a Hellowen or Gamma Ray song. You Come Undone also has a relatively brisk pace, yet moves by a good rock groove and lots of spry guitar riffs and licks. If it's any indication of what's forthcoming on the new album, we won't be disappointed one bit.
For the live songs, Unisonic picked some fan favorites from the first album, and the band sounds pretty darn good live. If anything it proves they can pull off their studio tricks in live settings. After all, considering the combined experience of the members, they certainly better not suck live. But some may listen and say these songs sound almost to pristine. With little doubt, Unisonic fans will want to grab this EP. But fear not, if you wish to wait for the new album.
