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.

    I wish Jon Nödtveidt didn't blow his fucking brains out - left one hell of a legacy though.

    Yeah, Thulcandra really does suck pretty hard. Nothing they've done is a patch on The Somberlain.

    Thulcandra sounds like a soulless death metal ripoff of Dissection that goes through the motions and melodies without the compositional prowess or the soul.

    You don't need something close to Dissection, you only need DISSECTION.

    Thulcandra is a really bad rip off band by the way. If you want to listen to music close to Dissection just listen to old Necrophobic, Vinterland and Sacramentum, but neither of those come truly close to Dissection's greatness, though The Nocturnal Silence by Necrophobic is a classic in it's own right.

    @Maquina_Muerte: That's a really horrible idea. It will never happen and that's for the better. Cherish the memory of Dissection and Jon Nödveidt, one of the best metal bands and metal musician ever!

    so Asklund is a session drummer only? well, too bad, seems he did play live in 2004 though, so he would be able to pull it off live

    no, thulcandra do dissection calculated rip off. and any dissection tribute band a la twilight of the gods I'd rather see Tobias Sidegard on vocals, Erik D on bass,Perra Karlsson on drums because Asklund does not play live, sure Set doing rhythm guitar, and Jonathan Hulten on lead guitar. that's my vote, all things considered... all those guys are actually active live musicians and very talented.

    Just imagine: John Zwetsloot (The Somberlain) on guitar, Johan Norman (Storm Of The Light's Bane + Where Dead Angels Lie) on guitar #2 , together with Set Teitan (Reinkaos) on vocals + Bass and Tomas Asklund (Reinkaos) on drums, hell I'd watch that, that would be fucking awesome ^^

    I'm kinda hoping they can do some kind of Dissection revival/tribute (with last + previous line-up members) just like they're doing with Death DTA and Twilight Of The Gods, would be cool for those among us who still haven't managed to witness Dissection music live... What do you guys think? would you go watch something like that live or would you totally be against it ?

    In nowadays, physical media is good just for collections. With technology's progress, the virtual media is ruling the world. Well, I usually download loads of dicography. If I like, I think in buy it to support such band. By the way, fuck the metal rules. "bla bla bla you MUST listen it to be a tr00 kvlt from h3ll" ewwwwwwwwww
