Get ready for some hellish metal pleasure: Following their four successful albums ’The Unity‘ (2017), ’Rise‘ (2018), ’Pride‘ (2020) and ’The Devil You Know – Live‘ (2021), European tours as headlining act or alongside luminaries such as Sinner, Edguy, Axel Rudi Pell or Rhapsody Of Fire, celebrated shows at Masters Of Rock, the Knockout Festival, Metal-Fest or Bang Your Head, The Unity‘s fifth release, ’The Hellish Joyride‘, presents them from a more playful and varied side than ever before.
“Our music has always featured a wide stylistic range, but ’The Hellish Joyride‘ stretches the boundaries of melodic power metal even further,” explains Michael Ehré, referring to the album‘s twelve extremely diverse songs, which range from neck-breakingly fast-paced and groovingly cool to balladesque.
On top of that, the band‘s latest addition, Tobias “Eggi” Exxel (bass, Edguy), has brought fresh energy to the fold and unmistakably supports the sworn circle of Gamma Ray members Henjo Richter (guitar) and Michael Ehré (drums), vocalist Gianba Manenti, guitarist Stef and keyboardist Sascha Onnen.
The new album has been scheduled for release on Steamhammer / SPV on August 25, 2023, and their European tour with Primal Fear is set to kick off just one week later.
