Seti biography
- Seti is a new and promising Chilean progrock band, in fact it is a side-project of the musicians of SUBTERRA, led by the multi-instrumentalist Claudio Momberg. Its name is taken from the famous NASA program: Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence. This scientific experience in radio-astronomy aims to create contact with possible extra-terrestrial life forms.
From the Seti website: "The Second SETI album is underway: as of today, there are 40 minutes of music written for the new SETI album, with a little harder edge than the Life Signs album."
- The music on the debut CD entitled Life Signs (2005) has strong echoes from early MARILLION, especially the strong build-ups and compelling bombastic 'grand finales' featuring bombastic keyboards and howling electric guitar.




Why this artist must be listed in www.progarchives.com :

4 stars SETI - this intresting prog rock band from Chile taken the name after a NASA program - Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence, was formed around 2004 around excellent multi instrumentalist Claudio Momberg who already had another band named Subterra. SETI released so far two albums at great chilean label Mylodon. The second offer named Discoveries is to my ears a real winner, issued in 2010 got world wide very good feedbacks both from fans as from critics. Quite lenfght album, with lenghty pieces, long instrumental passages, vocals this time sung in english, excellent skills and very good sound overall. The music goes towars symphonic prog with some neo prog hints but in some parts there are some edgy passages with a harder edge, the combination of those elemets are made in great manner and with good vision in what direction the piece will take. I like a lot Jaime Scalpello vocal tone, fiting like a glove in this kind of music, also featuring here as special guest top notch vocalist Daman Wilson one one piece - Ellipse, aswell his special unique tone of voice is perfect for such music, well done job as always. As I said lenghy pieces, 4 out of 7 total has over 9 min, complicated arrangements, twists and turnes, the duels between guitar and keybords are excellent, some really fantastic passages on Underground or The inner outside. Most of the time the instrumental sections are bombastic well played with many catchy and memorable parts, as must have a prog rock album. I really like it , even SETI gone little under the prog radar, and definetly needs far more recognition, this second offer aswell the first are among the best Chile has to offer in last years. From me 4 stars, excellent album with many demandic arrangements. Nice artwork and overall package. For fans of elaborated prog something similar with Galleon, Yleclipse, Marillion here and there even with Ayreon in some parts or Erik Norlander solo albums. Recommended for sure. An unfairly unnoticed band.

Review by robbob

3 stars Well i am chilean . So i feel proud to "Discover" we have a very good prog band. I listened to a promo copy of this album.

Here we find a strong influence(in my opinion) of mid Genesis era ,Thieves Kitchen maybe and swedish Galleon and White Willow and netherland s Flamborough Head.

A good album ,very well recorded( i can t distinguish in quality between this recording or the last Rush album for example) good compositions,good musicianship ... but i can,t find this work (and the one before this Life Signs) a very original prog. This music hasn,t the roots of the very original(because of the incorporation of some folkloric elements) Astralis or Aisles ...this may be a work of the english prog,the swedish prog ,the US prog and you ll say : "another traditional neo prog album".

Don t misunderstand me .I really like a lot this music and more than the other prog rock bands i mentioned before but there is a lack (may be) of more creativity ,more virtuosity ,more power,more decision to define a special prog work .

I really don t like Argentinians too much but i must say the best prog rock in this part of the world is in the other side of the Andes .Nexus work is the best(Chaneton too quite good) and we can t forget Sagrado Coracao from Brazil.

Remarkable is the participation of Damian Wilson and that is a very good consideration for this chilean band.

4 stars A BIG HAND FOR THE NEW LATIN-AMERICAN PROG, PART TWO!!

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!
