3 stars Brazilian trio Dialeto was found in 1987 in Sao Paulo as Dialect by guitarist/singer Nelson Coelho, drummer Miguel Angel and bassist Andrei Ivanovic, playing music inspired by the likes of King Crimson, Black Sabbath, Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin.After an eponymous LP on Faunus Records in 1991 the band was put on ice (Ivanovic performed for a short time with O Terço), only to be ressurected some 15 years later as Dialeto.The sole release of the group was reworked in 2008 with additional guitar and violin parts, while the vocals were re-recorded.The album was then released during the year as ''Will exist forever'' on the Brazilian label Rock Symphony.

Dialeto proposed an intricate and powerful Heavy Prog with strong psychedelic vibes, some Ethnic orientations and lots of passionate grooves akin to KING CRIMSON, split in 11 short pieces and based on both mid- and up-tempo rhythmic tunes.The addition of violins remind me of ANKH, while the music is very atmospheric, although the vocals are pretty accented, yet they do work well in such a dark enviroment.Pretty great guitar moves by Coelho with an evident FRIPP-like approach, containg sharp riffs and angular rhythmic tones with limited but also interesting solos.Some of the tracks are rather vocal-oriented with a slight Post-Punk aura, but the memorable grooves in them are pretty damn great.However there is some balanced space for guitar-oriented instrumental madness as well.''Existence'' is also based on traditional Afghan Music and Dialeto have transformed it into a fine Ethnic rocker, while a pair of other cuts have obvious Ethnic vibes in the guitar runs.The problem with all these bands is that their sound is a bit sterile at moments, lacking efficient diversity.

A nice album for all KING CRIMSON maniacs or anyone into Progressive Rock with a guitar-styled edge.Rhythmic, quirky, fairly psychedelic and dynamic music all the way.Recommended.
