It has been 13 years since Ivory Knight's last album, Unconscience, in 2005. The band is back doing what they do best, which is mixing some crunchy, old-school-ish heavy metal with a heavy dose of melodic metal. Their brand of metal is rather accessible without sounding too commercial, with maybe the exception of a couple of tracks that are rather "inoffensive", sound-wise (a good way to attract the uninitiated listener into your metal trap). Vocalist John Perinbam still sounds great, with a very melodic, approachable style that delivers power and punch where needed.

There are so many bands these days that it's hard to say whether Unity is enough to really put the band on the map, but that can be said of a lot of bands. If you're hankering for some melodic heavy metal with a few aggressive cuts thrown in for seasoning, then this album is certainly worth checking out.
