Biography

Stockholm, Sweden (1988 – 2011)

Dismember was a Swedish death metal band formed in 1988 in Stockholm, Sweden. They released eight full length albums, three EPs, two live DVDs, a demo compilation, and a single. They stopped in 2011. They are known for having a distinctive “chainsaw” guitar tone courtesy of the Boss HM-1 Pedal and recording and mastering at Tomas Skogsberg’s Sunlight Studios.

In 1991, Dismember made headlining news in the UK for having a song called “Skin Her Alive” on their “Like An Ever Flowing Stream” debut. Accordingly, while authorities were inspecting Nuclear Blast packages for any “obscene” material under the newly passed Obscene Publications Act. In short, this was taken to court and Plastic Head (the company responsible for distributing their CD’s) won the court case and was awarded money where the Dismember record was deemed neither “pornographic, obscene or indecent”.

Richard Cabeza was removed from the band due to distance issues. Richard went down to Texas during the recording of “Where Ironcrosses Grow” because that is where his wife lives and she was pregnant at the time. Cabeza and his wife planned on moving back to Sweden and having the baby born there. For some reason, Swedish immigration would not allow it. The distance became an issue for the band, and Richard Cabeza was replaced by Johan Bergebäck.

    wow, now that I think of it, The Dagger is actually signed to Century Media, so chances are pretty high that if Dismember signs with a new record label, there's like 85% chance that it will probably be Century Media :) I assume Regain Records is bankrupt anyway so....

    A good start off would be to sign with Century Media if they intend to release new music again, at least they know how to properly marketeer albums and they are a big label with a lot of respect for the old veteran death metal bands (Thanatos, Asphyx, Grave, Carcass, Morgoth, Deicide, Massacre,.....) they might also hook them up with decent tours or festival appearances (that include a pretty decent wage) due to obligatory booking packages, it will be good for Dismember, it will be good for the fans, it will be good for death metal in general... just

    I think they'' go the Bolt Thrower way by letting the demand for live shows rise, and then when they'll have decent offers they'll come back again, I think the Dismember guys got sick of all the bad luck, bad organisation on tehir last full tour... so much time and money investment with almost nothing in return, and ofcourse all that bad karma with Regain shooting itself in the foot around 2007/2008... it's 4 years later now since the split, death metal is more popular now, and generally organisation became better, and I think Blomqvist had his share of fun with The Dagger now, so..... please let it be....... A reunion sometime soon ... maybe ? ^^

    They really need to re-unite, their split was such a shame, no infos, no news from them in two years, then bam, just a single note on the web to inform the fans, it's not a good way to go. At least a farewell world tour is needed, they represented so much in the extreme metal scene.

    Great death metal band. Remember seeing them live in 1991 in front of about 40 people.

    yes the back on black reissue is garbage, sound, cover, and the fact that its split up between 2 records. really poor release. avoid at all costs.

    I'm so happy that I managed to track down the very first/original CD pressing of "Like An Ever Flowing Stream" in good condition for a very decent price. My old Karmageddon remaster from 2005 that I've had for years is shitty as hell. The sound is, of course, compressed like a brick, and even the booklet, front cover/artwork, and back cover are all blurry. A very unprofessional re-release I'd say, avoid it! Now I only need the original vinyl as well... The Back-on-black re-issue vinyl of it looks too dark and full of contrast as well. I hate remasters.
