The goal is to answer all 6 questions and this would be the first price.  If there is more than one fan who answers all questions, we have to do a drawing. This may also happen, if no one answers all 6 questions and only 5 questions are correct etc.

Here are the prices:

1. price: 1 Unisonic ‘Light of Dawn’ Box Set including (the deluxe edition, the early demo cd, a 7 vinyl, a T-Shirt in size L, a poster and 5 picture cards)

Comments/review

My comments: “The 2nd show of Unisonic was done at Masters of Rock festival and it was already the 3rd time Unisonic played there after 2010 and 2012. For Kiske it was the 5th time he played at this festival, since he also played in 2011 with Gamma Ray at the Winter Masters and with Avantasia in 2013.

They first did a signing session at 19:00 and already an hour before many people were waiting to get something signed. The show started at 20:45 and luckily the weather was much better than the day before and no rain during the show. The sound was also much better and Kiske’s voice was in perfect shape. They played 3 more songs than at the first show and especially 1 more new songs, ‘Throne of the Crown’. The audience really enjoyed and celebrated the whole show. During a speech Kiske told the audience that they would have loved to watch the football final between Germany and Argentina, but they decided to play for the audience instead. :) As a little sidenote, they watched the rest of the match in the bus afterwards. ;)

Comments/review

My comments: “The Saturday was sadly much worse than the day before regarding weather conditions and there were several rain showers during the whole day, also during the Unisonic gig. The show was very good, but noticed a little bit that it was their first show after a long break.

New interview with Kosta

Please check out this interview with Kosta Zafiriou, which contains some fan and fanclub questions regarding the new album and tour of Unisonic.

BURRN! 8月号002kkkkkkkkkkkkUnisonic Fanclub: After the release of the first album you announced that Unisonic will have an “active” year and then an “off” year. During the off year Unisonic would not be the priority but the band would still be partly active and would perform a couple of shows. During 2013 Unisonic was 100% “inactive”. Was this due to Kai’s heavy work with Gamma Ray? Will the same thing happen during the band’s second “off year” (2015)?

Kosta: Actually we will do the majority of touring within 2014. Nevertheless, 2015 we still will be available for indoor shows and summer festivals.

 

Unisonic Fanclub: For the first Unisonic album, Michael Kiske recorded his vocals alone in his home studio. Did this change for the 2nd album and don’t you think it would improve the team spirit to record together as a band?

Kosta: Michael prefers to record in his own environment and we all respect this wish. Still, he is open for any input from Dennis as the producer or from the band in general. Many times we´d go back to a recording and change things if someone comes up with a better idea. This happened with all instruments and arrangements and it is not limited to Michael´s vocals only.

 

Unisonic Fanclub: There are many people who think that in times of illegal downloads and too many bands/album releases floating the scene, a release of an EP should not be done anymore. Do you agree with this and what kind of benefit do you expect from releasing this EP?

Kosta: For the first record it simply was the very first sign of life from the band. For the second album it made sense because we wanted to have a small release out before the summer festivals – we were booked for several festivals before the album release, and we wanted to show the fans with 1-2 new songs which direction the album goes. With 4 additional live songs we think we have a very interesting package and offer „value for money“. Of course, an EP is always an item for the die had fans; the main focus always will be the full album.
