Debut album by US Symphonic Band

The songs on “Remembrance Branch” range from intense rocking to gentle interludes, feature lots of time signature changes, and have several extended instrumental sections. You’ll enjoy fluent and pounding rhythms, beautiful synthesizer patterns, and heavy basspedals in “Burning Ink,” divine keyboards (from sparkling piano to majestic choir-Mellotron) in the Marillion-like “Slogans Of Compliance” and strong combined keyboard/guitar-playing in closing track “The Quest.”
