Harmony

Harmony is a Swedish Christian power metal band. It was founded back in 2002 by Markus Sigfridsson and Tobias Enbert. They contacted the other band members, most of who went on to play together as Darkwater later on. Harmony released their debut album Dreaming Awake in 2003. They became known for their highly melodic vocals, progressive guitar riffs, and neo-classical guitar solos. A few gigs followed, but all the band members were very busy doing other projects as well. I don’t think they are active anymore.
