Dissona is a progressive metal band from the Chicago area.  Don't you dare call them progressive metal, though.  Truth is, Dissona isn't sure how you would quantify them, but I can tell you that they are great.  Musically proficient and kind, the guys gave me an hour to annoy and question them.  For that alone, I am humbled.  

Make sure you check them out, if you're in the Chicago area, or when they head back out on tour.  I'm positive big things are coming for them. With this level of talent, it's when, not if.

Dig in and enjoy!
