Hi,

May 2009 Featured Artist is DIALETO a Heavy Prog artist originating from Brazil.

They released their first album in 2008 , titled WILL EXIST FOREVER



The bands is promoting 3 full tracks available on their artist page , or on the front page spot.

Here's the band bio , writted by THE WHISTLER:

DIALETO (meaning “Dialect”) is a Brazilian power trio that has existed on and off since 1987. Comprised of Nelson Coelho on guitar and vocals, Andrei Ivanovic on fretless bass and Miguel Angel on drums and backing vocals, the three grew up in São Paulo, Brazil, where they played separately in various underground bands. Eventually though, they met up and, finding a similar musical vision, decided to form a band.

Their first LP, the essentially self-titled "Dialect", was released in 1991, and was followed by three years of heavy touring. However, in 1994, the band decided to split up. But then, in 2008, the trio re-formed with intent to re-record some unreleased material on a new CD, "Will Exist Forever", and followed it up with some more heavy touring, continuing today.

DIALETO claims a diverse background, both musically and culturally. All three members proudly proclaim descent from at least two nationalities, ranging from Portuguese and Haitian to Yugoslavian. With these musical heritages, coupled with a musical diversity running from JIMI HENDRIX and the MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA to KING CRIMSON and Black Sabbath, DIALETO produce an eclectic sound that dashes from no holds barred heavy rock to tricky and experimental and places in between.

Shades of a 'not so gentle giant' fused with a hard rock guitar sound and latin themes. This is the best 'new' band i've heard so far. (with possible exception of Mars volta)
