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 Like an Everflowing Stream

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

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

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.

"Like An Ever Flowing Stream" is an ear-crushing landmark album for Death Metal.

Dismember are a Swedish Death Metal band from the nineties, and are praised as some of the most influential and important bands of the genre, mainly because of their debut album “Like An Ever Flowing Stream”, one of the key LPs of old school Death Metal.

Like a lot of similar bands, Dismember were focused on giving a brutal impact with their music: the first thing that pops up about these compositions are the crushingly heavy, distorted guitars. Hearing them makes you think of mountains crumbling down in fast motion. The vocals also are greatly guttural, nasty, and fierce. With the typical old school DM sound, the music is rough sounding and thrashy, and gives the perfect touch to the tracks. Sometimes a vocal chorus might subtly come in, to give a more unearthly feel, really giving the idea of this music, visceral as it is, coming strait from the center of the earth, born from the lava and rocks.

It’s thematic nature also is not different from the one of most Death Metal bands: what make the lyrics interesting is that the persona seems to be the same, but his actions and characteristics change from song to song, as if a story narrated his changes: on the first track, this narrator seems to be reluctant yet resigned about dying and to go to hell, but by the second and third track, he gets progressively more sadistic in his actions. Then in “Skin Her Alive” it almost looks like he’s somewhat guilty of his killings, yet with the track following he continues his work of evil. On the final track, it’s a sort of goodbye to the audience.

With only thirty minutes of length, “Like An Ever Flowing Stream” features eight tracks, all of them extremely consistent to the sound and to the attitude. This truly is like an immense, fuzzy ball of mayhem and destruction falling down a hill, and disintegrates every single thing that comes in its way. It leaves quite an impact on the listener, who despite the short life of the album is overwhelmed by the intensity. Starting with the powerfully memorable “Override To The Overture”, the album doesn’t lose it’s quality throughout it’s length, emphasizing the impact: from the shorter episodes like “Soon To Be Dead” and “Skin Her Alive”, to the more stretched out ones like “In Death’s Sleep” and “Dismembered”.

Thanks to it’s sheer brutality, “Like An Ever Flowing Stream” is still today regarded as Death Metal milestone; for any fan of the genre, this is a must.

Diogenes
Mmm, old school Swedish death metal. Sludgy, dirty, and 100% evil. Dismember was one of the founding fathers of the movement (Carnage hiatus included), bringing the exceptionally heavy style to the metal forefront in the late 80s and early 90s. While they’ve remained strong in modern times, it’s their first effort that set the tone for the massive outbreak of death metal in Europe in the 90s; and it came surprisingly close to perfection while doing so.

The reason why Like an Everflowing Stream is so legendary (to me, anyway), is the remarkable blend of aggression, melody, brutality, and technical prowess that it features. I really haven’t heard anything quite like it before. There are loads of death metal bands out there nowadays claiming to be “technical brutal melodic progressive blackened death metal with thrash influences” (or some other annoyingly long description), but none of them pull it off like Dismember did…in 1991. You can go through this album and easily pick out the parts that are melodic and the parts that are bone-crushingly heavy, but be just as satisfied with taking in all of the elements at once. It’s just so coherent and wholesome. Waaay ahead of its time in so many ways.

The album is short, with 8 songs spanning a total of just over 31 minutes (10 songs totaling about 40 minutes if you get the reissue), but rest assured that there is no lack of good material here; in fact, it’s the opposite. You’d be hard pressed to find any filler on this album. Each track is a cornucopia of classic death metal riffs, which once again, bind melody and heaviness with great care. Override of the Overture sets the perfect tone for the rest of the album, containing the BEST old school death metal riff you will ever hear in your life. It’s right around 3:15. Listen to it. Embrace it. Worship it. It’s among the many riffs that will absolutely throttle you while listening to this. Did you think that straight-up death metal can’t be catchy? Think again, sucker. I must have played this song 20 times over the first time I heard it. And here’s the kicker: every song is like this. Yes, EVERY SONG. Yeah, they’re short, but that’s just because the band packed so much killer into each of them. Each song is like a compacted ball of evil awesomeness. Evil runs rampant through the riffs of Bleed for Me. Dismembered is half sweet, sweet melody and half total asskickery. And Skin Her Alive, well, that song got Nuclear Blast taken to court for being so damn awesome (actually, they were looking for obscene and indecent material. They found none). That should give you an idea of just how cool this stuff is.

One knock against this style of metal is that in its early days, it wasn’t very technical. Yeah, most Swedish death metal bands were heavy as all get out, but there was plenty of sloppy playing going on under those muddy guitar tones. But sloppiness is one thing you will not find here. Oh no. The musicians in Dismember were well above average at this time. David Blomqvist and Robert Sennebäck throw riff after riff at you with rigor and energy, each striking its target like a smart bomb blowing the hell out of the latest terrorist establishment. The drummer, Fred Estby, is of particular note here, being especially solid with his double bass and cymbal work. He throws a couple of time changes in there for good measure, all of which is more impressive when coupled with the fact that he was only 19 when this album was recorded. And Matti Kärki’s vocals hit the death metal spot right on target; not too incoherent, but evil and aggressive enough to add to the overall atmosphere and piss off all of your neighbors. Of course, some of the members of Dismember got their trial run in with Carnage the year before, but that takes nothing away from their efforts on Like an Everflowing Stream. This is the sound of a band firing on all cylinders, and it’s amazing.

Everything else on this album is about the norm that you’d hear for a Swedish death metal band at the time. The lyrics are about things such as hell, body parts being chopped off, anti-religion, and all that good stuff (once again, perfect if you have some people living around you that you aren’t fond of). The production is just about perfect, considering that it’s 1991 and the engineering in Sweden hadn’t yet caught up with that of American recordings; the drums are a little thin, but that’s a non-issue when you consider that the guitars sound absolutely sublime. Each of those crushing riffs is magnified by a sludgy and downtuned guitar tone, and they’re still clear enough to, you know, actually hear the notes that David and Robert are playing. It isn’t over-produced, as there’s still somewhat of a hollowness during the solos, but this ends up adding to the atmosphere instead of removing from it.

Like an Everflowing Stream is a genre-defining classic, there’s no doubt about it. The amount of influence it had on both sides of the death metal spectrum is undeniable. However, unlike a lot of prototypical metal albums, this one withstands the test of time and is still one of the best that the genre has to offer today. Definitely a must-have for any death metal fan.
