Semente - Semente (1999)
The debut album from this Brazilian band.
The band was a quintet with a lineup of mellotron, bass, drums, guitars, moog, flutes, organ, saxophone, piano and vocals.
The vocals are in Portoguese and they are mostly female vocals.
The band released their second album last year and they have also released a live album too.
Their music is a nice blend of Brazilian symphonic prog, folk rock and psychedelic rock. The sound and music is very much Brazilian and goes back to the 1970s and the local progressive bands from that era.
The vocals are good, although they are a bit of an acquired taste. The guitars too is a bit special.
The music is mid-tempo and pretty melodic. The album is forty minutes long and has some pretty long songs.
The quality is pretty good throughout. There is no outstanding tracks here. It is still an album well worth checking out if you are into Brazilian progressive rock and or symphonic prog.
