Saudade, the music collective formed by Chuck Doom of (Crosses/Team Sleep), have been collaborating with Lamb Of God, etc. frontman Randy Blythe on a new track recently. Saudade themselves boast an impressive roster of musicians that along with Doom includes:

  • Chino Moreno (Deftones/Team Sleep)
  • Gil Sharone (ex-Marilyn Manson/The Dillinger Escape Plan)
  • John Medeski (Medeski, Martin & Wood)
  • Dr. Know (Bad Brains)
  • David Torn (Sun Of Goldfinger, Davie Bowie)
  • Mackie Jayson (ex-Cro-Mags/Madball)
  • Robert Thomas Jr. (Weather Report)

The collective’s latest release “Shadows & Light” saw Chelsea Wolfe join the fold and can be heard here. Blythe himself commented about his sessions with the project, offering the following via social media:

“Just spent an amazing three days in Woodstock, NY working & chilling at @appleheadrecord studio– very honored to have been asked to contribute to @saudademusiccollective, an insanely talented musical coalition comprised of a bunch of very serious, extremely high-level players.

Saudade is the brainchild of my buddy, the mad scientist Chuck Doom (aka @tholyghost)- the collective recently put out a beautiful track called “Shadows & Light” featuring my pals @cchelseawwolfe & @chinowmoreno on vocals, so peep that.

The track I just laid vocals for features guitar by the man beside me in this photo, the legendary @DrKnowBadBrains (of Bad Brains), bass & other sounds from Chuck Doom AKA @tholyghost (Crosses/Team Sleep), mellotron/keys from @JohnMedeski (Medeski, Martin, & Wood), drums by Mackie Jayson (Cro-Mags), & just plain guitar insanity from @davidmtorn (he’s worked with way too many people to list- let’s just say he’s on several David Bowie albums.)

It’s NUTS- I mean, there’s even steel pan drums on the song that belonged to Jaco Pastorius (Doom is a jazz guy & was good friends with Jaco.) Can’t wait to hear a final mix of this and for it to be put out, because the rough I have sounds massive.

I mean, just to be on a track with Doc & Mackie is freaking INSANE to me- my inner teenager is losing his mind right now. Plus, I got to do some different stuff than what I normally do with my band, which is always the best feeling- if you’re a really an artist, you do your best to not get yourself painted into a creative corner.

That leads to creative stagnation, & stagnation= death. Screw that. Also did some writing for another tune I’ll track later- Applehead Studio is just an amazing place to be be creative (they have freaking goats & a potbellied pig running around- always a bonus.) What a great three days- I just feel grateful & very lucky to be working with musicians of this caliber (shout-out to @cshields12 for getting the ball rolling.) Stay tuned…”
