Founded 1988 in Stockholm, Sweden, Dismember were among those responsible for death metal’s big break through. The debut album, “Like An Ever Flowing Stream” released in 1991, clearly showed that Dismember are an uncompromising band which resulted in their rise to cult status within a short period of time after the album took the scene by storm. Extensive touring with bands like Death, Morbid Angel and Cannibal Corpse showed that Dismember are a live force to be reckoned with and the number of fans grew steadily. Spurred on by success, it was easy to commence the songwriting for the next album. However, the band then released the 5-track EP, "Pieces", and went out on tour again instead with Napalm Death and Obituary. They played for thousands of fans throughout Europe thus reinforcing their status as one of the best live bands on earth.

DISMEMBER Indecent & Obscene

Album · 1993 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Indecent and Obscene" is the 2nd full-length studio album by Swedish death metal act Dismember. The album was released through Nuclear Blast Records in December 1993. Dismember was formed in 1988 and is often considered among the seminal Swedish death metal acts. They released their debut full-length studio album "Like an Everflowing Stream" in 1991. An album which generally garnered praise among fans of the genre. The debut album was followed up by the 1992 "Pieces" EP. The lineup on "Indecent & Obscene" is intact from the first two releases by the band. The title of the album refers to a British newspaper article which called Dismember Indecent & Obscene. A chance like that should of course not go wasted.

The music on the album is old school Swedish death metal. Most tracks are relatively simple and direct but there are a couple of more intricate tracks featured on the album too. I´d characterize both "Souldevourer" and especially the Dismember "classic" "Dreaming in Red" as examples of that. The latter is also notable for being THE highlight of the album. I´m afraid I have to add unfortunately here though, as the remaining tracks simply pale in comparison. There´s nothing that´s of a terribly bad quality featured on the 9 track, 35:06 minutes long album, but way too many of the tracks go by unnoticed, lack hooks, and are forgotten as soon as the album is over. To my ears the only standout tracks on "Indecent and Obscene" are the two above mentioned tracks and "Skinfather".

It doesn´t help that the sound production is slightly unpleasant sounding. Dismember takes the buzzing Sunlight studios guitar sound to the extreme on "Indecent and Obscene", and as a consequence it´s often hard to hear what is being played. The guitar sound simply comes off as messy. The musicianship is also only decent and the way the album is mixed reveals some of the not to tight playing. While "Indecent and Obscene" does features some redeeming qualities ("Dreaming in Red" is for example a splendid track), it´s hard not to feel disappointed by the drop in songwriting quality since "Like an Everflowing Stream (1991)". Sure the "Pieces (1992)" EP wasn´t the greatest release either (compared to the strong debut album), but one could have hoped it was a one off drop in quality. A 3 star (60%) rating is warranted.

DISMEMBER Pieces

EP · 1992 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Vim Fuego
Way back when death metal was vital and dangerous, Dismember were the most dangerous of them all, for a short time. 'Pieces' was their 15 minutes (well, 15 minutes, 57 seconds, to be exact) of infamy. Dismember took the Swedish death metal sound pioneered by Entombed and Carnage to a new extreme. Faster, more brutal, and more convincing than their contemporaries, there is not even a trace of subtlety in this EP. Perhaps the most immediately distinctive element of Dismember's sound is the "clicky" kick drum sound. Instead of thundering along under the mix like, say, Obituary, Dismember's kick drums are right there, beside the snare, slapping you round the face, demanding attention. While not a great technical drummer, Fred Estby's performance is brutal, and fancy drum fills and off-kilter time signatures would have ruined the overall bludgeoning effect. The guitar and bass sound is basically the same as Entombed's 'Left Hand Path' and 'Clandestine' albums. It's the sort of noise a V8 powered chainsaw would make ripping through a concrete wall. It is also surprisingly well defined for a death metal band. The riffs, like the drumming, are far from spectacular, but are clear enough to stick in your head hours later, particularly ‘I Wish You Hell’ and ‘Torn Apart’. A little something that set Dismember aside from other Swedish death metal bands in the early 1990s were the guitar solos. They were a little sparse, as they generally are in death metal, but showed thrash and NWOBHM influences, an unheard-of combination for the time. Matti Karki growls like a man possessed, and from the sound of it, the demons inside him are none too keen on each other. There is the deathgrunt demon, which seems to be Karki's prominent musical persona. There is also the anguished-burning-in-Hell demon, accentuating lyrical highlights, and then there is the disgruntled grumbling demon, which complains the other two talk too much. Short and sweet, this EP managed to help define a scene and satisfy the hunger of Dismember's fans wanting more of the incredible 'Like An Ever Flowing Stream' debut album. The band also managed to get themselves banned in a number of countries due to the lyrical content and artwork. At The Gates? A bunch of schoolgirls compared to Dismember.

DISMEMBER Like an Everflowing Stream

Album · 1991 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Warthur
Dismember's Like An Everflowing Stream finds the band almost manifesting as Sweden's answer to Deicide - there's the same modest song lengths and album length, the same brutality, and the same avoidance of showboating. Not that this isn't a very technically capable album - far from it - but the technicality all goes to support the crushingly brutal atmosphere the band seek to establish on the album. With lyrics laser-focused on murder, death, carnage and decomposition to a downright morbid extent, the band went all out to create one of the sickest and most sinister albums of all time, and its death metal violence still holds up well to this day.

DISMEMBER Hate Campaign

Album · 2000 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Hate Campaign" is the 5th full-length studio album by Swedish death metal act Dismember. The album was released through Nuclear Blast Records in January 2000.

The music style on the album is no surprise if you are familiar with the band´s back catalogue. A mix of old school Swedish death metal and melodic death metal not too far removed for the early Swedish melodeath scene. The band are well playing and especially during some of the more melodic tracks, they play some really well sounding melodic leads and themes. The more old school parts of the music are not as interesting though. It´s like a rehash of the ideas they´ve used since the debut, and too many of the tracks simply aren´t that memorable. Matti Kärki is a strong growler, but his singing style does become slightly monotone after a while. Maybe it´s a combination of unremarkable music and a pretty standard quality sound production, that affects the vocals.

"Hate Campaign" is overall a pretty enjoyable album, but unfortunately also an album that quality wise doesn´t stand out much neither in the band´s discography nor in death metal in general. Dismember fans should purchase without hesitation, while more casual fans should take a listen before spending their hard earned cash here. A 3 star (60%) rating is warranted.

DISMEMBER Massive Killing Capacity

Album · 1995 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Massive Killing Capacity" is the 3rd full-length studio album by Swedish death metal act Dismember. The album was released through Nuclear Blast Records in August 1995. After releasing what is widely considered a seminal old school Swedish death metal album in "Like an Everflowing Stream (1991)", Dismember released the "Pieces (1992)" EP and then their 2nd full-length studio album "Indecent & Obscene (1993)". None of which could live up to the great quality of the debut album.

"Massive Killing Capacity" pretty much follows that trend too. It´s a generally more melodic and varied album than "Indecent & Obscene (1993)", but there is still the issue that not enough tracks stand out from the pack. The melodic instrumental "Nenia" being one of the exceptions. Sometimes the riffs the band play sound very similar to the ones from the last album and that´s a minor issue too. Fortunately the sound production is much better than was the case on "Indecent & Obscene (1993)", which ultimately makes "Massive Killing Capacity" a more accessible release.

Maybe I´m being a bit unfair here or maybe I´m simply not able to put aside my disappointment, that Dismember have never been able to follow up on the brilliant "Like an Everflowing Stream (1991)", but "Massive Killing Capacity" just isn´t an album that makes my blood boil and I can´t give more than a 3 star (60%) rating. Fans of melodic old school death metal should probably check this one out though.
