When haunting songs at the interface between hard rock and melodic metal meet with the excellent musical skills and extensive experience of all musicians involved, the result is bound to be brilliant. The Unity are a prime example of this, all musical parameters pointing to an outstanding act with a promising future. After all, The Unity is the new group founded by Gamma Ray members Michael Ehra (drums) and Henjo Richter (guitar).
Richter has been part of the Hamburg power metal outfit for some twenty odd years, while Ehra's CV includes prior to his joining the Gamma Ray fold in 2012 renowned names such as Firewind, Uli Jon Roth and Unisonic, to name but a few. The Unity have spent almost eighteen months working flat out on their debut self-titled album. You don't have to be a clairvoyant to predict a bright future for this band.
After all, in The Unity the two instrumentalists and composers Richter and Ehra have surrounded themselves with excellent colleagues who not only share their artistic vision but have already played live on stage with them in other constellations: many fans have been familiar with exceptional Italian vocalist Gianba Manenti, guitarist Stef E, bassist Jogi Sweers and keyboardist Sascha Onnen since the launch of Ehra's group Love.Might.Kill.
