Bruno Guilherme

Bruno Guilherme (born at 22th January 1979) is a portuguese drummer.

Bruno had his first contact with music at the age of 6 when he started to show skills for percussion by listening to his dad music library. It was at this age that he had his first contact with bands such as Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Nazareth, Scorpions, Deep Purple, etc…

At the age of 14 he had his first drum kit and his first band of friends where he played several covers of rock.

In 1998 Bruno was invited to participate on his first metal band called “Ciborium” on which he performed several live concerts in Portugal to promote the band album “Collosal Crags”. On this same band he recorded the full lenght album “Overgrowing Human Void” (2003). Bruno stayed on this band till 2010 however during that time period he was also contracted as a session drummer to several projects.

In 2007 bruno was also drummer for the band Devonian and session drummer for Enchantya till 2010. On this same year he was also invited to play with WAKO (We are killing ourselves) on which he toured several international festivals on Spain, United Kingdom and Portugal for the promotion of the album “The Road Of Awareness”.

on 2017 Bruno joined the Paulo J. Mendes international metal project “Caedeous” as a contracted studio and live session drummer.



Bernardo Rodrigues

Bernardo Rodrigues (born October, 1979) is a Portuguese guitar player.

Bernardo Rodrigues was heavily influenced by his family’s vynil collection ( wich included all music genres, except metal ), he then started to get into heavier stuff after listening to europe’s the final countdown, bon jovi’s slippery when wet, guns’n’roses appetite for destruction, ac/dc’s the razors edge and saxon’s rock the nations, amongst others.

His first contact with a musical instrument happened in 1992, when he was awarded with my first acoustic guitar. Afterwards, and like many kids of his generation, he started exploring the guitar playing by my own, and with the help of some of his friends

Concerning the guitar playing, his influences travel from Pink Floyd to Type O Negative, the Century Media 90’s movement, the British Goth/Doom elite ( Anathema, My Dying Bride, Paradise Lost ), the early northern black metal, the technical death metal movement, some classic trash acts and many more, too many to name the all…

Bernardo Rodrigues musical work with Paulo J. Mendes dates to 2000 where he was invited to a black metal Project and then later to a power metal Project in 2004.

In 2017, a new adventure appeared and Bernardo Rodrigues was invited by Paulo J. Mendes to be part of the orchestral / metal project CAEDEOUS as a live performance and studio guitar player
