Dialeto: Will Exist Forever

These Brazilian art rockers go way back to 1987 when they played in the underground rock scene of Sao Paulo and issued their self titles debut in 1991 before departing the scene, seemingly for good. Now after a lengthy hiatus they have returned with a CD that finds them revisiting the basic drum, bass and guitar tracks they recorded in the early 90's and updating them with the added advantage of using modern technology and providing new vocals, additional guitars and violins. To complete the retro effect Voiceprint Brazil have done a very nice job in making the package a mini-LP replica with a cardboard gatefold sleeve and inner bag that contains the lyrics.

The band are essentially a power trio that consists of Nelson Coelho (vocals/guitars), Miguel Angel (drums/vocals) and Andrei Ivanovic (bass) and they take their basic style from early 80's King Crimson with a fair amount of intense metallic jamming that adds in Eastern influences and is delivered in bite size chunks with most of the songs lasting little more than three minutes. They might not go in for epics but the songs are still well developed with some eclectic vocals backed up with some solid grooves and accomplished soloing. There are six songs with vocals and three instrumentals with the album rounded out by a bonus jam 'Just For Free' and a Portuguese version of 'Animal'. Of the songs with vocals the aforementioned 'Animal' and 'Existence' (which takes its inspiration from a traditional theme from Pakistan and Afghanistan) make the most impact and are given added impetus by some dark and twisted lyrical bite. This would make an interesting addition to any prog fans collection and hopefully there will be more to come from Dialeto in the not too distant future.
