4 stars Saecula Saeculorum ("per omnia saecula saeculorum" means for all centuries of all centuries) is a brazillian prog-band from middle of seventies. All songs are sung in portuguese (not spanish!!), except the first track: sung in portuguese and latin language. According to AMG, this album is a collection of several demo tapes preserved from that period, without their gigs. Their style is very close to folk-progressive, with harmonic violin, solos guitar, piano, bass and drums. Unfortunatelly, the band release just one album. We never heard about them anymore, only about Marcus Viana, who created Sacred Sound of the Earth and made a famous solo career in Brazil, playing progressive rock, movies soundtracks and New Age. Well, I can say Saecula was one of best brazillian prog-bands, they made a perfect marriage between classical music and rock, not forgetting to add brazillian elements. You can check Saecula music buying their CD by mail: http://www.sonhosesons.com.br/pgcatalogo.htm

4 stars Oh,those were the days! In the mid seventies seeing a good prog act was something like a distant dream. Brazil was still an exotic, farway country for most international bands and national groups only rarely did shows in my hometown. But we did have our own heroes in Saecula Saeculorum. They played some highly acclaimed shows and, needless to say, were followed everywhere by progheads (me included). We were very proud of them. They did recorded some songs but broke up before it was released (maybe that explains its short running time. Some sources claim the original LP was never completed as intended, lacking some tracks they did not have time to include). In fact, it took decades to be put out, as far as I know - the releasing date must be wrong. And although we were saddned by their demise, their young violinist Marcus Viana carried on with his own group, the now famous Sagrado Coração da Terra.

Hearing this CD nowadays brings me back in time and although the group did not succeed much in translating their electrifying live performances into the studio, it is still excellent music. Their mix of symphonic rock (a la italian bands like PFM and Banco) with West Coast acid rock (including the lyrics, all sung in portuguese) was quite interesting and unique. Some of the stuff even reminds me of another seminal brazilian band, Os Mutantes, although much less anarchic and without their humor. There are lots of classical piano parts and great violin riffs that recall Darryl Way´s (Curved Air) style. Vocals were performed by guitarrist Jose Aluisio with help from keyboards player Giacomo Lombardi and the aforementioned Marcus Viana

With a good production for the time, this CD is recommended to anyone who likes 70´s classical symphonic rock music. Fans of Sagrado Coração Da Terra and Marcus Viana will be delighted to discover that band´s roots.

3 stars Made in Brazil. The first minutes of this album starts out as an Mahavisnu Orchestra album and I am starting to wonder if I put the wrong CD in my CD player. The violins here are pretty jazzy. But the music enters a more familiar territory after a while. The opening track, the title track n ... (read more)

4 stars Saecula Saeculorum is a kind of forerunner of the famous Sagrado Coração da Terra: born in (brazilian state of) Minas Geraes with the great violinist Marcus Vianna. However, unforttunately, the band had short life, borning and dying at seventies. This unique album is a good sample of brazilian ... (read more)

4 stars The only album by this group is an excellent work. I think it is rather original as well. The excellent violinist Marcus Viana and the pianist Giacomo Lombardi lead the music. It is a very short album, clocking only a little over 28 minutes, but this is a minor issue because the music is of high ... (read more)
