Review by erik neuteboom

Here is another strong CD from a South-American progrock band, it seems that they are becoming the new leaders in the world of the progressive rock: William Gray, Bauer and Nexus from Argentina, Supay from Peru, Parthenon from Venezuela, Tarkus, Spin, GALF and Diapasao from Brazil and from Chile we have Astralis and .... Seti, what a wonderful debut CD (from 2005)! The brainchild is Claudio Momberg (multi-instrumentalist, producer, lay-out and composer), he has surrounded himself with seven other musicians to found Seti.

The climates in the eight melodic, pleasant and tasteful arranged compositions (five instrumental) alternates from spacey and dreamy to mid-tempo but mainly compelling and bombastic delivering lush keyboards and howling guitar runs, very moving. The keyboard sound is varied, from warm piano and orchestral layers to fluent organ runs and fat synthesizer flights. The English vocals are decent with a bit melancholical undertone. My favorite on this CD is the guitar player, this man knows how to push the rights buttons with lots of very moving soli! The highlight on this wonderful CD is the final track entitled The Ship Of Joy (almost 18 minutes, five parts). It contains lots of flowing shifting moods with strong vocals, sensitive guitar and Mark Kelly inspired synthesizer flights. Halfway the music turns from mellow into more and more lush, culminating in a splendid 'grand finale' featuring propulsive drums, powerful bass notes, bombastic keyboards and a strongly build-up, very moving guitar soli, goose bumps, this is Progheaven! At those moments Seti reminds me of early Marillion with closing sections like in Chelsea Monday and Forgotten Sons.

I hope Seti will release their forthcoming new album soon because this debut-CD has delighted me, highly recommended!
