A melodic death/black metal band from Strömstad, Sweden. The band was formed in 1989 by Jon Nödtveidt (vocals / lead, rhythm & accoustic guitars). The other members were Ole Öhman (drums), Peter Palmdahl (bass), and John Zwetsloot (rhythm & classic accoustic guitars).

In 1990, Dissection played their first live show with death metal act Entombed. In the same year, they recorded and released their first demo entitled The Grief Prophecy. A year later the first EP Into Infinite Obscurity was released. In 1992, Dissection began work on a full-length album, The Somberlain.

During November 1994, Dissection signed a record deal with the German record label Nuclear Blast. Because he didn't take the band as seriously as the other members did, John Zwetsloot was replaced by Johan Norman on rhythm guitars. In 1995, the band's second full-length album, called Storm of the Light's Bane, was released. The following year, Dissection

DISSECTION Storm of the Light's Bane

Album · 1995 · Black Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Warthur
Perhaps it's the influence of melodic death metal in the country's extreme metal scene, but the Swedish black metal crew seem to have been substantially more interested in fancy-pants musicanship than their rougher, rawer Norwegian comrades. Perhaps it's no surprise that it's Swedish bands like Dissection who spearheaded the development of more melodic forms of black metal. Essentially a reiteration of the style they pioneered on The Somberlain, Dissection's Storm of the Light's Bane offers up black metal in a deceptively accessible form; it's black metal for those who like to be able to hear what the individual musicians are doing and like the odd melodic solo here or there. Though I don't think it's the eye-opener The Somberlain was, it's still a more than worthy follow-up which proves that the first incarnation of Dissection were still fresh and full of ideas and potential before Jon Nödtveidt pissed it all away with his involvement in a disgustingly pointless murder.

Warthur
Alongside the early Darkthrone releases, Dissection's The Somberlain is one of the earliest albums to combine the misanthropic assault and atmosphere of the second wave of black metal with the technical pyrotechnics often associated with death metal. With brilliant performances and impeccable production, it was one of the albums which proved that, despite the sneering of critics, black metal wasn't just about people who could barely play their instruments recording their music with a gratingly lo-fi approach (not that there's anything wrong with that). And even better, it still sounds as fresh and transgressive today as it did then - perhaps more so, knowing the future antics some of the band members would get up to.
