The Unity Issues "Rise And Fall" Single

German melodic metal act The Unity - formed by Gamma Ray members Michael Ehre (drums) and Henjo Richter (guitars) - issued a lyric video for the first single "Rise And Fall." The song will be featured on the band's debut self titled album coming May 5th via SPV/Steamhammer Records.

The band also features vocalist Gianba Manenti (Love.Might.Kill), guitarist Stef E, bassist Jogi Sweers (Love.Might.Kill) and keyboardist Sascha Onnen (Love.Might.Kill).

“During many gigs and countless hours in the rehearsal room, Michael and I discovered that we are on the same wavelength, on a personal as well as on a musical level. So we came up with the idea of focusing that part of our creativity that goes beyond Gamma Ray in another band,” Richter explains.

Michael Ehré adds: “Our artistic ideas are on the one hand so similar that we arrive at a common denominator most of the time and on the other hand they’re different enough to ensure a diverse album that doesn’t sound boring for a second. Particularly as this band consists of six first-rate songwriters.”

Every note of the debut album oozes the great creative potential of all band members: powerful numbers such as the fast and tough "Rise And Fall" and the grooving "No More Lies" with its dynamic guitar riff and melodious chorus are just as symptomatic for the group’s unbridled energy as the slow, doom-laden "God Of Temptation," which features a latent Black Sabbath flair thanks to its distinctive guitar hook.

More information on the album is expected soon. Check our "Rise And Fall" here: More...
