Biography

There are multiple bands called Dissection:

1) Dissection was a band from Strömstad, Sweden. The band was formed in 1989 by Jon Nödtveidt (vocals / lead, rhythm & acoustic guitars). Other members were Ole Öhman (drums), Peter Palmdahl (bass), and John Zwetsloot (rhythm & classic acoustic 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 titled “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”, which was released by the now-defunct Swedish label No Fashion Records.

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, “Storm of the Light’s Bane”, was released, after which Öhman left the band to be replaced by Tobias Kellgren. The following year, Dissection also released a short EP titled “Where Dead Angels Lie”. It was compiled from previous rare and import releases, and contained only cover songs and demo tracks.

In 1997, a compilation album featuring almost all old Dissection demo songs was issued, titled “The Past Is Alive (The Early Mischief)”. That same year, Jon Nödtveidt was convicted of helping murder a 38-year old homosexual man in Gothenburg and the band disbanded. Jon was serving time in prison until early 2004 and then reactivated the band.
