Unisonic by Unisonic
Released: Mar 2012
Label: Eagle Rock/Armoury Records
This German metal supergroup -- featuring alumni of Helloween, Gamma Ray, Krokus and Asia -- plays pumped-up-harmony pomp that's more endearing for being shamelessly '80s- anachronistic, even if no tune's quite indelible enough to have hit back then. Still, from torch ballads to top-gun anthems, they steal from excellent places: rappy Billy Squier rhythm in the opening theme song "Unisonic"; "Eye Of The Tiger" electro-pulse in "I've Tried"; Def Lep Hysteria intros in both "Star Rider" and "Renegade"; blatant A Flock Of Seagulls "I Ran" chorus hook in "My Sanctuary." They also dig outer space!
