Syracuse Bands - Unified Past

Progressive/Hard Rock

Unified Past is a power progressive rock band from Syracuse, New York. While there is most certainly plenty of chops to be found in this band’s music, their overall sound focuses more on melody and song composition than it does on technical gymnastics.
The addition of Daytime Entertainment Emmy Award winning vocalist Phil Naro in 2015 show’s that the band is continuing to grow and evolve and that they are a band that prog rock fans should really get to know. Guitarist Stephen Speelman possesses a master’s degree in classical guitar performance, Bass Player Dave Mickelson is currently a member of Joey Belladonna’s Chief Big Way, Keyboardist Jason Hanley Musicologist, Musician, Author, and Interim VP of Education at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, and thunderous Drummer Victor Tassone has appeared on several independent artist releases as well, including Corvus Stone and Andy John Bradford’s Oceans 5.
Shifting the Equilibrium (MRR 22113) 2015 release is the band’s 7th release and their third for Melodic Revolution Records. The CD is a 6 panel digi pack containing a 12 page booklet of lyrics and photos, designed by international fantasy artist Ed Unitsky, who also designed “Spots” in 2013. The stunning artwork is supplemented by the photography of Rochester’s Scott Hamilton. The visual presentation in combination with the sonic experience, makes an immediate impact on the progressive rock fan and has earned Unified Past a wider audience.
