5 stars DIALETO is the best thing to happen to prog.rock since Primus. I kid you not; Dialeto's _Will Exist Forever_ is an instant classic. These guys are impossible to pigeonhole. At times they remind me of Voivod without the thrash, at others they sound like The Comsat Angels gone space rock a la Gong. Dialeto is a genre defying band. One minute it's middle eastern, King Crimson avant gardisms...the next it's Black Sabbath - then a hard left turn into Sonic Youth territory with a Deep Purple-like rhythm section drive...touching it off with Larry Lalonde-like guitar noise. All in one song. Brand X trying to play sloppy Led Zeppelin? Ritchie Blackmore soloing like Tony Iommi? You name's here! There is nothing dated about this music either. No digital keyboards(actually, no keyboards at all - keyboards are non existent). Also, think of post punk bands like The Fall, Television, Gang Of Four & Talking Heads hopping on the Primus bandwagon. Call it Slacker Prog. DIALETO is incredible on so many levels(the track _Enigma_ must be turned up to '11').

Of all the new bands I feature on my radio programme, DIALETO received the most amount of phone calls from inquiring minds. These guys deserve to be an opening band for one of the modern biggies like Porcupine Tree or The Ozrics for some exposure...or at least they need to be invited to one of the big prog.rock festivals to show us their bizarre chops. DIALETO is definetely the best thing to come out of Brazil since Milton Nascimento, O Terco and Sepultura(now there's a mix). There are no turkeys on _Will Exist Forever_. Every track is unique and it gets better with each listen. Primus fans take notice. Symphonic prog.rock fans should avoid this. However, this would appeal to space rock, hard prog, jazz/fusion and maybe the RIO crowd(especially folks who enjoyed the No Wave movement).

Gooner | 5/5 |
