It went so briliantly well that after three consecutive months of practice, the trio already had a sound very much their own. It was during this same period that a strong song writing collaboration between Edu and Rodrigo got going. A year after the formation of Milícia Celeste, changes in their lives were such that each member began to follow his own path, resulting in the breakup of the group. After this period, at somewhere around 2003/2004, Edu entered into a great odissy through a succession of innumerable bands of varying flavors of rock, (from punk rock to heavy metal), conferring to him a wide range of musical experience. Meanwhile Rodrigo was also developing his skills playing with some childhood friends in a neighborhood parish where he lived. Even though they were enjoying a certain amount of success on the paths they had taken, they felt the absence of that finely tuned sound they had back in the days of “Milícia Celeste”, thus as time went on the impetus grew stronger and more necessary For Rodrigo and Edu to reunite and to recapture their friendship and musical affinity obfuscated by the passing of time. - THE REUNION And so, after a long wait of about four years Rodrigo and Edu were able to get back together again to pick up where they’d left off, restarting the old projects, arranging songs that had been written in the past, devising a new repertoir, putting even more feeling into their music, and planning the formation of another band. After a few months of practice, they took the initiative to look for a good drummer, someone who above all else would be perfectly in tune with the band and who’s style would not be as aggressive as that of the majority of current rock drummers.
Searching their memories, Edu and Rodrigo remembered a little admirer of both their careers in the early years. This friend in question was Caique “Bulldog” Barbosa, brother of a good friend of Edu’s and Rodrigo’s. Caique Bulldog loved the drums and had a powerful desire to become a great rock drummer. Even back when Edu and Rodrigo had been part of the trio with Marcelo Rocha in 2003, Caique Bulldog, only ten years old, started taking drum lessons and beginning his path to his chosen goal.
But noone had imagined that his musical development would be so qualitative in such a short time, turning him into an incredibly versatile and highly creative drummer, indispensable ingredients for a progressive rock band. - A MUTUAL AGREEMENT IS ESTABLISHED These were the the crucial reasons for the duo of Rodrigo Nunes and Edu Bento to invite Caique to be an integral part of this new group in mid 2007. He didn’t hesitate to accept the friends’ invitation with great joy and exuberance. Thus began this power-trio which didn’t have a name yet. During the next three months, the trio’s greatest concern was finding a name which would faithfully represent the soul of the band. But finally, what would be the most appropriate name? The question was present in all of their minds, until a moment came that in an online conversation between Edu and Rodrigo, they started talking about how to describe in a few words what the principal characteristics or highlights of the trio would be.
They eventually came to the conclusion that the common thread was the fact that they were so in tune with one another. So with a central, common and unconditional idea about the band, Edu Bento reluctantly consulted a dictionary in order to come up with a synonym of the word “sintonia (syntony)”, whereupon he found two nouns, “Acordo Mútuo (Mutual Agreement”. On seeing these words all agreed that without doubt this was a name that best defined the soul of the group. From that moment on the group would be known as Acordo Mútuo. Read more on Last.fm.
