Today, we have the pleasure of featuring Juhan Ongbrian, a highly promising experimental jazz fusion artist hailing from Los Angeles, California, USA. In this review, we will delve into the captivating details of their song, "Mood Swings," which serves as the title track of their EP album released in 2019. While I have been a dedicated metal music fan throughout my life, I've always maintained an interest in music that showcases advanced musicianship, such as Juhan Ongbrian's exceptional work. This EP features collaborations with Ech0 and Sly Chong, and we will explore their phenomenal contributions in this article.

Despite recognizing that jazz music may not appeal to everyone, I believe that being an artist means having a genuine appreciation for good music, irrespective of genre. Opeth, for example, has been a remarkable teacher for metal music fans, pioneering the fusion of jazz and black metal elements. Juhan Ongbrian, in a similar vein, displays tremendous potential in his profound understanding of music. His compositions are incredibly melodic, addictive, and captivating. Upon listening to the opening seconds of "Mood Swings," I was instantly captivated. If you possess an ear for distinguishing between good and bad music, this song is undoubtedly for you.

Juhan, along with Ech0 and Sly Chong, showcases not only their advanced musicianship but also their compositional skills, ideas, and decision-making. Every aspect of the song has left me enthralled. Furthermore, Juhan's guitar playing style, along with his overall music style, occasionally reminds me of Guthrie Govan. While I cannot pinpoint the exact reason, it may be attributed to his toning and melodic phrasing. The song's structure defies standard conventions, while its magnificent atmosphere immediately transports the listener into its realm. To be honest, it was impossible for me to listen to this song at a lower volume.

Technically, "Mood Swings" exhibits top-class standards in both musicality and production. The sound is clean, clear, natural, and atmospheric, meticulously handled, recorded, mixed, and above all, in perfect harmony. It ranks among the most delightful tracks I've encountered in this genre. Although I am unsure of the album's producer, their remarkable work is evident. The producer played a pivotal role in achieving this outcome. Whenever I listen to the song with headphones, I can't help but close my eyes and imagine them performing live in a dimly lit jazz club—an experience I yearn for.

Considering all these factors, I am truly blown away by Juhan Ongbrian's exceptional understanding of music, advanced musicianship, unique music style, and captivating guitar playing. Expressing my admiration for "Mood Swings" proves challenging, as its impact was enough to capture the attention of Metalhead Community. I am confident that Juhan and his fellow musicians will find their rightful place, embark on tours, and contribute to making the world a better place.
