The talk of a Helloween reunion with singer Michael Kiske and guitarist Kai Hansen has been going on for many years now, but nothing has ever come out of it. But no matter how many times any of the parties has denied that it would ever happen, the talk has never silenced and it seems like the Helloween fans will never give up on it. When both Kiske and Hansen were touring with Avantasia a few years, the rumours came to life again. Especially since Michael Kiske has on several occasions spoke of his loathing for heavy metal and his solo releases has been pop and ballads and his recent project, the Frontiers Records driven Place Vendome, consisted of AOR and melodic rock. But with his involvement in Avantasia, Kiske was all of a sudden back on doing heavy metal and with Hansen’s involvement, well, lesser things has started rumours before. When Unisonic first saw the light of day in 2009, it was Kiske that teamed up with Pink Cream ’69 members Dennis Ward (bass) and Kosta Zafiriou (drums) and guitar player Mandy Meyer (Krokus, Asia, Gotthard) that were the core of the band, of course Ward was heavily involved with Place Vendome and he snatched Kiske from there. But it was when Kai Hansen joined the group in 2011 when all hell broke loose. Now, Hansen had been trying to recruit Kiske as the lead singer for his own band Gamma Ray for ages with Kiske declining every time, so when Hansen took the opportunity to work with Kiske in Unisonic instead, it was the closest to a Helloween reunion ever and of course the fans picked up on that. The fact that to many, Hansen and Kiske were Helloween’s top song writers back in the day so of course expectations on the debut, self titled 2011 Unisonic album were astronomical, to put things mildly.
