Alchemy Chamber / Bio

Alchemy Chamber is an eclectic mix of genres, featuring
captivating melodies intertwined with complex rhythms in a
purely instrumental arrangement. The unique sound of the band,
that combines heavy riffs and expressive contrapuntal melodic
lines, is influenced by classical composers, such as Bach and
Beethoven, as well as metal bands of various genres, including
instrumental metal bands like Apocalyptica which became a big
inspiration for the project.
Anna Kuchkova, a classically trained cellist, originally had the
first three compositions arranged as cello duets until Alchemy
Chamber started forming in December 2012. Now, Kevin
Arland, the sax player, smoothly harmonizing with Anna, adds a
broader texture to the music; Mehmet Turan, a metal guitarist,
brings forward both melodic and heavy aspects of the sound;
Marco Restagno, a jazz student from Capilano University, on
bass, and Julia Geaman, a thrash drummer who technically
hammers down the thunder represent the rhythm section of
Alchemy Chamber.
A growing list of songs, now with respect to the band’s unique
arrangement, brought the band to playing live by the summer of
2013. A steady flow of new material and regular shows in venues
of their home town, Vancouver, keep the band focused and
sharpen their sound and chemistry.
Alchemy Chamber’s debut 4-song EP “Opus I Excerpt”, recorded
and produced with the help of David Spidel, was released online on February
1st 2014.
