4 stars DIALETO are a power trio from Sao Paulo, Brazil. The first time I heard them I thought of some of those heavy KING CRIMSON-like bands from Chile I like so much. After many listens though I have to say that these guys have their own unique sound. I just have a blast when I play this.The vocalist can be theatrical, and the guitar, bass and drums are so impressive. I guess I just like this style of music a lot, and these guys couldn't perform it any better.

"Vermelha" opens with this atmospheric guitar that goes on and on unil it kicks in before 2 1/2 minutes. Nice. "Mme. Blavatsky" is dark and eerie with drums and bass leading the way. Spoken words a minute in. It;s building and then the guitar starts to solo 2 minutes in. "Existence" has an ethnic flavour to it and I love the sound of the guitar after 1 1/2 minutes and 3 minutes in. Deep bass later. "Enigma" is dark and haunting as spoken words come in. This is so good as he tells this story, I really like his accent too. This gets pretty heavy at times and check out the guitar and bass 4 minutes in. The drums are over "Animal" and the vocals get theatrical in this uptempo rocker.

"Anger"has some good bottom end to it and the vocals are again theatrical but laid back this time. "Seven Drunks" opens with what sounds like seven drunks laughing. Guitar then takes over with bass and drums. Great sound. Some angular guitar here too. "Misty Queen" opens with relaxed guitar melodies as reserved vocals join in. It kicks in after 1 1/2 minutes. The guitar is killer 2 minutes in and check out the growly bass. "Gunga Din" has this spooky intro but it changes quickly as the whole band comes in. The guitar solo before 2 minutes as drums pound and bass throbs. I don't usually comment on bonus tracks but "Just For Free" is worth some commentary. The guitar is all over this until the drums and bass arrive 2 minutes in. Great sound a minute later.

Highly recommended for fans of Heavy-Prog, this is too much fun.
