Dissection

Gothenburg, Sweden-based death metal outfit Dissection were formed in 1989 by singer/guitarist Jon Nödtveidt and bassist Peter Palmdahl; with the addition of drummer Ole Öhman the following spring, the group recorded its first demo, The Grief Prophecy. Following the 1991 Corpsegrinder single "Into Infinite Obscurity," Dissection recorded a second demo named The Somberlain, which resulted in a contract with No Fashion Records and their first album (also titled The Somberlain, but also featuring second guitarist John Zwetsloot) in late 1993. Johan Norman replaced Zwetsloot for the follow-up, 1995's Storm of the Light's Bane, but then, in July of 1997, Nödtveidt and a friend were charged with the brutal murder of an Algerian homosexual. Both were convicted and Nödtveidt received an eight-year sentence, bringing about the end of Dissection.

Öhman formed a new group called Reaper, and the release of a rarities collection, The Past is Alive, in 1998 felt like the band's last rites. But the ensuing long silence was eventually broken by 2003's Live Legacy box set, and Nödtveidt's release a year later allowed him to finally revive the Dissection name, starting with the two-song Maha Kali EP (part of which was recorded while he was still in jail). A potential collaboration with former Emperor drummer Bard Faust didn't work out, but by late 2005, Nödtveidt had assembled a new Dissection lineup out of guitarist Set Teitan (see also Aborym), bassist Brice Leclercq (of Nightrage), and drummer Tomas Asklund (ex-Dark Funeral). This foursome recorded Dissection's well-received third studio album, Reinkaos, which was issued in May 2006 by The End Records, and seemed to confirm the band's triumphant rebirth -- later documented on the aptly named Rebirth of Dissection in-concert DVD.

However, Dissection's summer tour plans were abruptly cut short, and it was announced that the band would split up following a final string of U.S. dates, which were subsequently canceled due to difficulties obtaining an entry visa because of his criminal record. And then, even while fans were still coming to grips with their disappointment, news began spreading across the Internet that the 31-year-old Nödtveidt had committed suicide with a gunshot to the head, surrounded by candles in his Stockholm, Sweden, apartment, sometime around August 16, 2006. Shortly before the suicide, Nödtveidt is said to have sent farewell letters to his father and several friends and acquaintances -- one of which reportedly read, "I'm going away for a long, long time. I'm going to Transylvania." ~ Jason Ankeny & Eduardo Rivadavia, Rovi

odinswulf
All hail the greatest of Black Metal bands! Dark supremacy incarnate given musical form...rest in darkness, Jon.
One of the greatest bands ever. Jons skill on guitar is insane and he defintily was a true satanist walking the left hand path rip jon
In Norway and Sweden they are way to lax on murder.Half of the Black Metal musicians out there have been in prison for serious s**t.Read the book Lords of chaos or look some of these motherf**ker s up, none of these dudes could make it in the States. They all have it way to easy!!
Horns!!!
GREAT MUSIC !
Pandora is retarded, this isn't death metal it's BLACK METAL!
The most rock & metal stations on Pandora Radio!
Intro sounds almost like testament
Dissection is outstanding metal. And yes an album or two are different than the usual but still very listenable.. . i f you like metal, you should like Dissection.
If you listen closely you can tell this is metal
You R Great thank u for it\,,/(^_^)\ , , /
Jon Andreas nodtveidt is in darkness alone in the abyss .. He has repented.. Visit him sometime... He is trapped there... He was depressed... No one understood a damn thing....
Y'all don't know s**t bout black metal...thes e guys as truly EVIL
Pfff your losers, it's awesome that Jon killed someone, street cred and glory n**ga.
Amen!
This band is really good but f**king killing anyone sucks, minus 15 points Dissection!!
Damn by far one of the best Black Death bands out there. I enjoy reinkaos more now that I am older and appreciate music a lot more, honestly think Jon was ahead of the game. Hail dissection.
This band rules!!! if you like this guys check out GRAVETOWN from Salt Lake City, Utah. perfect mix of Dissecton and Skeletonwitc h
Reinkaos is so black N roll!! Every dissection is good s**t.
tristanhi88
hail dissection
Only 8 yrs for murder? What a pathetic git. May have been a decent black metal musician, but not having respect for human life more than negates any talent.
kamalkaze
I can dig it!
Old Dissection is awesome. After Jon's release from prison, I think he forgot how to write good music because Reinkaos is terrible. Perhaps that's why he took his own life.
I remember hitting that site that morning.and going whathell no!that dude was WAY talented!!!!
now these motherf**ker s were the real deal
Boom! Headshot!
THEY WERE A GREAT BAND !!!!
@Christian hahaha he compared it with swansong. of all things why wouldn't say heartwork and at least partially validify your statement? i like reinkaos, too, but god swansong was soulless garbage with a good guitar
davood626
black metal died with jon... anyone to know this band should consider themselves lucky to know what true black metal is.
8 years for killing an Algerian? wow. Makes a person really wonder,Where the hell's Algeria?
tristanhi88
I like gay killers and haters ov society
Say what you will about the band. I say it's a perfect example of a metallic vision realized in pure darkness. Did they have staying power? Did they evolve successfully ? Hell, no. But for what it's worth they freakin' DESTROYED the competition at the time.
I think I am one of the few people who LOVE Reinkaos. In terms of a rock n roll album it is way up there with Carcass' Swansong. Not black metal, but damn good rock, cheesy satanic doctrine lyrics and all!
I'll say so Moo
veronica_lyn n _ b e n n e t t
good god i love dissection. so much i have a tattoo of them ;>.
teenchic2009
i like the smell of my own poop. i keep it in a basket next to my bed so its the first thing i notice when i wake up.
one of the first, and certainly one of the best melodic black metal bands.
yeah I had found they're missing so many, not only BM but also death and thrash. Great band Armagedda Btw... but the fact with "Ancient" is that they're actually pretty "big" I mean sometimes my Pandora play songs from "small" bands that are known by almost no one! bands that started playing around 2005/2006/20 0 7 etc, bands with just one album, I'm fine with that, but c'mon! if you're gonna play very recent stuff u should care about the classics as well, and Ancient is one of them.
LOS AMOS DEL DEATH MELODICO.DIS S E C T I O N TIL RAGNAROK!!!! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
I agree with Mauricio. Pandora is missing a number of brutal BM bands...Arma g e d d a & Dawn is one of the many
These are okay ture black metal has more deeper tones.
Also where is Unholy? And not the s**tty death metal band, the Finish Funeral Doom metal band?
