The first Portuguese rock band to achieve gold sales status in its homeland by singing in English, alternative rockers Blind Zero came together in the early '90s.
Their debut EP, Recognize, was released in 1995 and became a collector's item since it sold out so quickly. Their debut album, 1995's Trigger, partnered the band with Jane's Addiction/Alice in Chains producer Ronnie S. Champagne. Flexogravity from 1996 found the band flirting with hip-hop, while Transradio from the same year was an acoustic affair. One Silent Accident from 1999 was recorded with indie rock producer Don Fleming, and was heralded by critics. The band's cover version of David Bowie's "Heroes" became an unofficial anthem for the Euro 2002 Soccer Championship. A year later, A Way to Bleed Your Lover would add another successful and revered album to the band's discography. ~ David Jeffries, Rovi
