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

Jon is the man. Most black metal people are homophobes. His music is amazing. Miss his creativity and raw talent. By no means was he a fake f*g as Trenadent666 says. Maybe learn about your black metal before you look like an idiot. I heard killswitch Engaged has a new cd coming out, better go cop that s**t cause your not in tune with black metal.

The best thing about Dissection were their bootleg Storm Of The Light's Bane T-shirts that were made in Poland or somewhere in that area… They messed up the album covers and back pieces and combined things from different albums but the final designs looked better than any of the original shirts. I bought a few in '96 and wore them to shreds until the sleeves fell off and there were more holes in these shirts than there was fabric. Mediocre band tho… 6.5/10 and that's being pretty generous.

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.

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.
