Rod Astorga And this, my friends, is what you call "a damn good album." Dissona wears their musical heart on their sleeve, taking inspiration from several genres across the world, ranging from (but not limited to) intense tribal drumming reminiscent of Latin America, the mind bending riffs from Sweden's Opeth and Meshuggah and melodic ideas hailing from the Middle east.This album truly a work of art and a must listen for any fans of prog-metal. Favorite track: Lysis.

Denis Easily one of my favorite discoveries recently. The album is an all-around work of art. The same way you see more every time you look at a great art piece, the unique and complex sound had me listening again and again, enjoying it more and more each time.

Lekiwi "The truth is, you’ll be met with an eclectic array of styles and sounds that requires your undivided attention."

"The playful nature of the instrumentation creates a veritable aural rollercoaster."

"...Paleopneumatic is nothing short of impressive."

Eric Fisher I haven't been this surprised by a group I've discovered in quite awhile. It's a marvelous and cascading aural presentation, blending elements of at least half a dozen genres into a beautiful array of musical ambition. At times haunting, at other times downright choleric, this album is one of the best I have heard in years. Favorite track: Lysis.
