Michel Oliveira is an multi-instrumentist and music producer based on Sao Paulo/Brazil.
Michel Oliveira started on the music path since the childhood. He started to play acoustic guitar and moved to eletric guitar when he was 10 years old. In 2003, he joined the guitars and vocals of his first band Mysterius . That period was very rich on musical experience due to the Michel's involvement in church music, playing acoustic and eletric guitar in cults and events. In 2005, he began to study guitar with Matheus Ferreira, a great guitar player from Sao Paulo. In 2007, when he was 17 years old, Michel composed his first instrumental songs. Also, he founded Seven Seals of the Apocalypse at that same time.
Oliveira's first contact with 7 and 8 strings guitars was when he listened to the '95 Mortal Kombat movie soundtrack that was composed by Fear Factory. He didn't know about extended range guitars, but he realized that that low guitar tone wasn't from a simple 6 stringed guitar. He was captured by that heavy sonority from Dino's guitar and discovered his path to the extended range guitars. He was also influenced by John Petrucci, Sydnei Carvalho and Frederik Thordendal.
In 2010, Michel recorded his first demo called The Unknown. That record had a great relevance for Michel's career. Besides being the first record from Michel's career, it was also one of the first djent style records using an 8 strings guitar in Brazil. At that time, CODE 3-7 was taking it first steps. In that same year, Michel joined Judas O Outro, band founded by Walter Lopes, legendary drummer from one of the most important christian rock bands from Brazil.
Michel consolidated his career recording many other albuns and EPs, all of them with metal and modern music influences played with extended range guitars.
In 2012, Michel started to work with musical production at Sputnik Home Studio. He've already recorded and produced more than 100 records of many different genres.
2015 and 2016 were hot spots of Oliveira's career. He shot his first live DVD called Parallel Universe containing 15 song featuring various artists and few times after he travelled to USA to present his music at the EMGtv, important Youtube Channel where artists like Devin Townsend, Andy James and Tosin Abasi have already played.
