One-man Instrumental Progressive Metal Artist, Oliver Cheung, has been cultivating his passion for music ever since the burgeoning days of his youth. Orchestrating a symphony of euphoria and rhapsody through learning to play the cello led to Oliver’s strengthening of interest to pave a unique road generated by heart and soul. Having recently released his new EP, ‘Remembrance’, Oliver makes it evident that this is the only the beginning of what’s to come.
Kicking off with the first title track, “Remembrance”, Oliver begins by creating a lustrous combination of deep ambience and adult-contemporary that journeys through a multidimensional land of instrumentals that create an aura of mystery that leads into an exemplary dose of medieval guitar-work that mimics the likes of Dredg in their ‘Catch Without Arms’ days. The second track, “Fragments”, takes the EP into a bolder state as Oliver’s extensive range of expertise creates a thrilling work of Metal art that is an utterly captivating and mature display of craft and talent. Closing out with “False Hope”, Oliver instrumentally creates the feeling of drifting through smoke and wonder as he gently stirs the pot through a complex song structure that is seemingly created with ease which leads to a heavy metal aesthetic that is rich in emotional intensity and darkness.
You will not skip a second of ‘Remembrance’ and the listening experience is an invitation into a realm of musical euphoria that is both compelling and gently inviting. Drawing influence from worldwide talent, in our day and age of commercially rich and over-technical music, Oliver Cheung is a talent that you do not want to miss. If you’re a fan of fellow musicians such as Dream Theater, Buckethead, Opeth and Devin Townsend Project, then keep an eye on the exciting road ahead for Oliver on Bandcamp.
