“8 out of 10”

“ This hard-working outfit writes songs based on hard-nosed emotional honesty, propelled by wailing guitars and concussive rhythm. Raw emotion, superior songwriting and high production values converge in mesmerizing live shows”

“Disalto’s stage presence is heightened by convulsing guitarists and a wild drummer who’s not afraid to swing his sticks like Animal from The Muppets. Lead singer, Dana Cordero, deep, commanding voice leaves you in a trance and one can’t help but be memorized by his vocals.”

“The skillful musicianship and dazzling production make this disc quite and enjoyable listen.”

“As a whole, the band is adept at working together to blend aggression with serenity. They move back and forth between the two, at times holding back the aggression in their songs to clear a path for the vocals . At other times, the band will launch an all-out assault on the listener, with the vocals leading the way, yet yielding to everything else. The overall ebb and flow, is an integral part of Disalto’s style, and is responsible for keeping their sound interesting, especially since they do it so well. I would really recommend giving them a listen. ”

“All ten of the featured tracks are good in their own way and there is not one definitive track that stands above all others which makes for a fairly balanced album.”

“In the vein of bands like Finger Eleven, Strata, The Panic Division and 30 Seconds to Mars, disalto cranks out 11 tracks of alt-metal filled with a sense of importance. From the initial guitar licks on album opener, “The Arrival,” it becomes clear that you’re in for seriously solid tunes. ”

“The album captures Disalto’s ultimate strength, their ability to move from aggression and fury to the more restrained part of the musical spectrum, navigating between them smoothly and accommodating both equally well. ”

“Disalto’s ten-track debut album One Beacon In The Strand washes over you like a cool flannel rousing you from the verge of unconsciousness, and will keep you refreshed for the rest of the day, its catchy harmonies and powerful choruses living long in the memory”

“On Disalto’s new album One Beacon In the Strand, you can hear just how serious this band is about their music career. With 10 songs, this album has one great song after the next. Lead singer, Dana Cordero, has a voice that will remind you of a younger version of Tim McIlrath. The chemistry in the band is clear throughout the album. With help from producer David Baker and mixing by Mike Major, One Beacon In the Strand is no sophomore slump for Disalto.”

“How about a brief vocab lesson to introduce our next band Disalto? Disalto is a band that thinks before they name something. From their band name to their album name, they lend careful thoughtfulness to their music and everything tied to it. For their sophomore album, Disalto avoided clichés and gave their album a title that is not at once understandable but ultimately decipherable—One Beacon in the Strand. For those of you that don’t grasp the meaning, the words below should help you out. If you still don’t get it, the band explains it themselves below. Enjoy! Beacon (noun) a person or thing that illuminates or inspires Strand (noun) the land bordering the sea, a lake, or a river; shore; beach ”

“The sound of ‘One Beacon in the Strand’ is both angry and peaceful, and when blended together, delivers something that fans have long been waiting to hear. ”
