BIOGRAPHY

Unity is a Melodic Power metal band from Iowa.  It was formed in November 2010 by Alonso “Zo” Donoso.  Alonso decides to leave his previous band and start a new musical project.  Zo’s idea was to create music that was more European oriented and Melodic, yet powerful and raw.
Unity’s music could be described as Melodic Heavy Metal with European Power Metal influences. Unity takes influences from different bands and backgrounds to create something fresh but yet classic with catchy riffs and powerful melodies.

Unity: full band

In order to get this project started, Zo had a challenging task ahead of him. Trying to find like minded musicians to join forces in this new project in the Midwest wasn’t easy, but Zo’s determination and burning desire to continue his musical career helped him to complete the task.
The first to join the fold was old friend Tim Cummings in the drums (Ex-Dark Mirror).  He has been keeping active for some time with a local cover band. After being asked by Zo his response to join Unity was automatic. 
The next step was to find a talented guitarist that could satisfy Unity’s musical direction, Zo’s melodies and musical ideas. This individual had to have the ability to recreate the melodies in Zo’s head.  Zo found Yasko Kajtazovic a local musician that had moved into the States a little over 3 years ago from Bosnia. He had been playing in a cover band named Yugoslavia.  Yasko accepted to become part of this project.  After rehearsing for several months the chemistry of these 3 individuals grew beyond limits and several songs were the outcome of dedication and great musicianship.  But the line-up wasn’t completed yet, they needed a bass player talented enough to keep up with Yasko intricate melodies and riffs.  After trying out several individuals, they finally found what they were looking for; Adam Amdor (Ex- Divide Zero) was the last piece of the puzzle.  Unity is now ready to take the Midwest by a storm and show the true meaning of Heavy Metal to the people around these plains.
