The new Break out magazine (German edition) of August 2014 features a studio report of Unisonic, a review of 'For the Kingdom' EP and an advertising.
Here are some translated excerpts what Michael Kiske and Dennis Wards said:

Dennis about the recording process: “We started writing and collecting songs in December 2013…then we met as a band 2 times for always for days in Karlsruhe to record and finish the songs. This was different to the first album, because these days brought us the real band feeling. The production itself was done very fast, because you must keep in mind that most musicians are busy with other bands/projects. Kai was busy with Gamma Ray until the last days, Michael was travelling with Avantasia, Mandy with Krokus and Kosta as the manager of Helloween also has a lot of things to do.”

Kiske about the album:”I wrote 3 songs for the album, but the band itself gets the songwriting credits, because they all worked on the final result. This happened during the days we met at the studio. ..We are feeling as a unit and I will put my whole energy in the next months into Unisonic. I’m really very motivated for Unisonic and have a lot of ideas for the future.”

Kiske asked about a ballad on the new album like ‘No one ever sees me’:”Don’t worry, you will hear a ballad on the album and it is one of the songs that I wrote. It is called ‘Blood’. The song has a very personal text and is one of the calmer ones.”

The new Classic Rock magazine (German edition) of July/August 2014 features an interview with Unisonic (official) and a review for the new album 'Light of Dawn' with the first official rating of 8/10.
Here are some translated excerpts what Michael Kiske and Dennis Ward said:

Kiske about possible difficulties between Mandy Meyer and Kai Hansen regarding songwriting: ”Not at all, they are so different like coming from different planets. They are not able to fight.” Dennis adds: ”except loudness, then they say, make me as loud as him.”

Dennis about having written most of the new material:” I don’t have any problems when I don’t write any song and the other members write the songs. This time it just happened this way.” Kiske adds: ”when 3 out of 4 like a new song, then the song is probably really good. It doesn’t matter who wrote the song. The opposite way when a song is only recorded that someone in the band has added something, makes no sense. Egos doesn’t help, only quality matters.”

Kiske about recording his songs in his own studio: „There is a completely different rhythm with sending the files around. There are completely different moods than when you have to function in the studio on command… Sometimes I don’t like to sing. Then I have to start with a few Elvis tunes to get the vocal cords working. I don’t understand colleagues who are not doing any warm-up singing, because they think it would harm their voice. Athletes also warm-up before any event and singing is a high performance sport. Warm-up singing is like a massage for the voice.”

Kiske about the recording process and his voice:” Everything is working a little different now. This is the result of a different recording process; we are playing the songs many times, before we record them-I really missed this a lot. The most significant change is regarding my voice with ongoing age. Earlier my voice sounded thin, now it sounds much thicker. The vocal cords got harder, this is a natural process and this is also the reason why you always need to work with your voice. Elvis for example sang every day some gospel songs and some other stuff to keep his voice flexible. He had success with it and even when he was thick, his voice sounded good. “

Kiske about doing all 2 days a fast day:” We must recognize that animals are not objects and no products. They have feelings, a consciousness and a soul like us. “
