Six tracks of fire-fueled Melodic Power Metal with only two new numbers on it is an odd kind of release from Sweden’s Harmony, but as an introduction to new guest vocalist Daniel Heiman you can see the intent.


And what you get is suitably impressive with the opener ‘Eternity’ impressively powerful and next up ‘Dreaming Awake’ more reflective with undertones of early Queensryche with added melody. It’s the soaring ballad ‘Without You’ though that really seals the deal – sweeping, reflective and uplifting
.


Last of the rerecorded tracks ‘She’ rocks harder and is more progressive, whilst the first of the new songs ‘In This Heart’ takes up the heaviness and adds a greater emphasis on melody and keys. Closer ‘Feed My Hunger’ suggests a more Melodic and riff-based future for the band. 


As a marker for a point in time ‘remembrance’ stacks up nicely, but the proof of the pudding will be a new album.
