Unbreakable - Knockout

by Jeff Legg at 14 August 2014, 2:07 PM

For hard rock newcomers UNBREAKABLE, the future is now. The buzz around this band has been growing steadily for the last couple of years, and with the release of their debut album, “Knockout”; the time has come for the world to witness what everyone has been talking about.

Once in a great while, a band comes along that is so distinctly different than the musical trend that you sit up and take notice just out of curiosity. But more times than not, the interest fades with the realization that the quality of music is not worth the investment of time and/or money and you quickly move on. But every now and then, one hits the scene with a sound that satisfies your musical appetite and proves to be more than a marketing ploy. Enter the polished, hard rocking sound of the German five-piece band UNBREAKABLE.  Consisting of Al Crespo (Vocals), Martin Ries (Guitar), Pascal Alles (Guitar), Lukas Mittler (Bass) and Alexander Ries (Drums), this band plays a style of music that is very reminiscent of the classic 80’s hair bands that once dominated the music industry and propelled many bands into the stratosphere. Now that this style of music is in the midst of a comeback, the time is perfect for them to “break big”. Having delivered their initial introduction to the world with their album “Knockout”, via Dark Star Records, UNBREAKABLE has the whole package; “arena rockstar” vocals, power chord guitar riffs, wailing solos, and great harmonies, all rolled into one high energy offering. If their sound brings back memories of the legendary band SCORPIONS, there’s good reason. SCORPIONS former drummer Herman Rarebell has mentored this band and put his influences and inspiration into this record as its producer, and all of it comes out in the band’s sound. But their music also possesses a current day, relevant sound that will be required to draw in the younger fans, and will surely finds its way onto the hard rock charts.

From the time UNBREAKABLE started playing gigs together, the expectations for them to become the next great German band, has mounted. With those expectations came the pressure to write greats songs and hone their sound well enough to play on the world’s stage. And now, having been provided a big time record deal, top notch promotion and proper funding, all the tools necessary to meet these expectations head on, “Knockout” proves that UNBREAKABLE has the potential to become one of the brightest new bands in the world. Only time will tell how far they will go, but by the sound of this record, the sky is the limit.
