Emperor Chung – Emperor Chung

Emperor Chung - album cover

Emperor Chung‘s eponymous debut, released in 2013, establishes the young British band as a promising, multi-talented act to follow.

Musically, the 11-track album spans a variety of influences, from classic rock and elements of jazz fusion, to pop-punk and nu-metal.

For a debut, it’s heavy on flash, but none of the tunes really implore a listener to ‘get up and move’.

Apparently this is the audio equivalent to a comic book about a mutant penguin.

With technically stunning, prodigious musicianship on show here, it’s ideal for someone who likes their accessible music just a little more complex then ‘the norm’.
