Over the years, Blame Zeus has seen changes in their lineup and have matured into the current roster of Sandra Oliveira on vocals, Paulo Silva and Tiago Lascasas on guitars, Bruno Branco on bass, and Ricardo Silveira on drums.
Over the past decade, they have made waves in the Portuguese rock and metal scene, with a unique sound that integrates elements of blues and soul. After releasing three acclaimed albums: Identity (2014), Theory of Perception (2017), and Seethe (2019), they have earned respect and recognition on stages of prominent rock and metal festivals, such as Vagos Metal Fest, Laurus Nobilis, Milagre Metaleiro Open Air, and Gerês Rock Fest.
“LAUDANUM” marks a new stage in the band’s journey, showcasing their continued evolution in creativity and musical exploration. Each song on the album is a collaborative creation of the band, with Sandra Oliveira writing the lyrics, intros and dynamic guitar solos are brought to life by Paulo Silva and Tiago Lascasas.
The album was co-produced by Ricardo Fernandes and Blame Zeus, with vocals and drums recorded at Dynamix Studio, in Lisbon, and guitars and bass recorded at Paulo Silva’s home studio. The mixing and mastering were done by Ricardo Fernandes at Dynamix Studio.
