Daniel Cardoso (born 28 March 1981) is a multi-instrumentalist, song writer and producer. He was born in the south of Portugal, and is currently a member of British band Anathema.[1] Daniel was also in Head Control System with Kristoffer Rygg[2] and Leafblade with Danny Cavanagh.[3]

First known as the drummer in the band SiriuS, and with whom he released two records through the Norwegian label Nocturnal Art Productions (property of Tomas "Samoth" Haugen). In addition to his drumming, Daniel was responsible for all the orchestral compositions, synth performance, most of the bass guitar recordings as well as co-producing both albums. His experiences in SiriuS has helped Daniel develop a multi-angled perception of music creation. When SiriuS later nailed down a record deal with Nuclear Blast he decided to move on, because, as he said, "it just wasn't funny anymore".[citation needed] He then conceived and commenced working on SinDRomE, i.e. Severe Damage on Reason and Equilibrium, his musical "means" to manipulate minds via sound, that would later become Head Control System.[4]

Daniel presently has an extensive curriculum as both producer and/or session musician for a vast list of bands: Anneke van Giersbergen, Head Control System, Ava Inferi, Angelus Apatrida, Heavenwood, Ramp (live), Anathema (live), Vertigo Steps, W.A.K.O., and many more. Furthermore, he was invited by the band Re:aktor (signed on Nuclear Blast) to join their flanks - which he did for a while - featuring on their debut record's single video and joining them on their European tour supporting US band Exodus as a drummer.

One of his most acclaimed outcomes is the work with Kristoffer Rygg on Murder Nature, Head Control System's debut album, released worldwide by The End Records (US) and VME (Europe). He also recently started developing his solo efforts as Del,[5] although things are not clear whether this is a serious project or not.[6][7]

During late 2010, Daniel started producing and co-writing Dutch artist Anneke van Giersbergen's fourth studio album "Everything is Changing".[8] The new single "Feel Alive" came out on YouTube on September 2011 and the album is expected to come out on early 2012.

Daniel also owns the brand UltraSoundStudios, a franchised company that has two recording studios operating in Portugal, one in Braga, in northern Portugal and the other one in Moita, southern Portugal. He currently splits his production jobs across both studios.

Live[edit]

During his career, Daniel played hundreds of live gigs behind the drum kit. Although he was most seen stepping the stages with the Portuguese live cover band RCA (featuring members from Ramp and Re:aktor), he also played several gigs with SiriuS, The Firstborn and Re:aktor. In 2006 Daniel had to step in as a drummer of the renowned Portuguese act Ramp, after their drummer Paulo Martins got injured and was unable to play the drums. Among other shows, Daniel played on the main stage of SBSR 2006 summer fest, featuring other bands such as Alice in Chains, Tool and Korn.[9] He was also seen playing drums with the English band Anathema on their show in Tunis, Tunisia, on 22 July 2010 due to drummer's John Douglas temporary absence.[10][11] During that time Daniel was still playing with Slamo,[12] Leafblade,[3] and heavy rockers Heavenwood. However, in early 2011, Daniel becomes a live touring member of the British band Anathema, although not behind the drum kit, but rather handling the keyboards, synths and sampling department[1] playing major venues, arenas and headlining shows all over the world.

On the eve of Anathema's 2013 tour of the United States, the band announced that drummer John Douglas and bass player Jamie Cavanagh would be unavailable. In response, Daniel shifted to drums and the band recruited Tobel Lopes for bass duties.[13]
