Enchiridion Interviews V - DISSECTION (SWE)

DISSECTION is one of the oldest Death Metal band in Sweden. Under this name they recorded the demo „Thy Grief Prophecy” in 1990 and a 7” EP called: „Into Infinite Obscurity” in 1991, what is recorded by Corpsegringer Records for 1000 copies. In the year 1994 they recorded „The Somberlain” album on a little publisher, so that album don’t too well-known. Therefore their second album they signed to Nuclear Blast. It was in 1995. They recorded also „The Somberlain” album again and an EP called „Where Dead Angels Lie”. It contains a cover by the legendary TORMENTOR(Elizabeth Bathory); a cover by SLAYER(The Antichrist); a Japan version of Feathers Fell and one more track. They recorded an LP also for Necropolis Records called „The Past Is Alive”, which contains their demos and the 7” EP. They feature also on the Necropolis compilation called „Nordic Metal - A Tribute To Euronymous” with two tracks: „Where Dead Angels Lie” and „Elizabeth Bathory”. They played gigs with bands like: Dark Throne; Satyricon; Dimmu Borgir; Gorgoroth; Dismember; etc. They featured also on a few compilation CD and there are a bootleg live CD called: „Nights Blood”. The latest news is that Jon Nödtveidt has been arrested for murder. They will rise again? I very hope! Well, read the intie, what I’ve done with the vocalist/guitarist Jon Nödtveidt, sometime in ’92-’93. On the first photo you can see the master himself:Jon Nödtveidt, and on the second photo you can see Ole Öhman(ex-member). Hail!


How was Dissection formed? Did you play anywhere else before?

„Dissection was formed by me(Jon) and Peter in 1989. I used to play in different Death/Thrash bands before… We wanted to create the most wicked and Evil Death Metal ever.. so here we are!”

Where do you get your inspirations and what do you sing about?

„I get musical and lyrical inspirations from my own eclipsed conscious and subconscious. From morbid forests, rain, darkness, hate, death that I experience. Also from evil and devastating music like: BATHORY, DESTRUCTION, IRON MAIDEN, VENOM, KING DIAMOND/FATE, MAYHEM, NECROVORE, ASSASSIN, MUTILATED, WITCHFINDER GENERAL, MEFISTO, CANDLEMASS, MORTHOND, DIAMANDA GALAS, LAIBACH, KING CRIMSON, SODOM, KREATOR, LANDBERK, MORBID ANGEL, EMPEROR, MORBID, POISON(Germany) etc…”

What kinds of music do you listen to?

„Early Death/Black/Thrash/Heavy Metal mostly. Also synth(industrial), progressive rock and classical stuff.”

You are one of the few truly satanist in todays. What can you tell me about satanism?

„That I’m totally devoted to darkness and I’m more than satisfied keeping my personal activities, thoughts for myself… I’m no goddamn preacher.”

Tell me something about scene in Sweden!

„It sucks the trend ****… I like BATHORY and a few more.”

Sweden has these days one of the fastest growing DM scenes in Europe, of course lots of good and too many bad bands. What do you think of scene in your country?

„As I said… it’s worthless! We are the only Death Metal band along with Bathory, Merciless and some more worth mentioning. The new Marduk album is also brutal…”

Tell me something about the Swedish ’zines!

„There’s no many, I guess… I used to read: To The Death, Megalomaniac, Putrefaction, At Dawn They Read etc…”

Which bands are you in contact?

„We are in contact with very few bands. We don’t feel we have to.”

Do you know any Hungarian band?

„I love Tormentor! But I guess they have split up now. That’s too bad, because their „Anno Domini” demo totally ruled in hell!!!”

How would you categorize your music?

„Metal of Death… What the ****, call it what you want!”

Could you describe the band members?

„Jon Nödtveidt-vocals/guitars,John Zwetsloot-guitars, PeterPalmdahl-bass, Ole Öhman-drum

What did you released as„Dissection”?

„Two demos + a 7” EP called „Into Infinite Obscurity”. Look out for our forthcoming album The Somberlain on No Fashion Records in the end of this year!”

Who writes music and who lyrics?

„I do most of the stuff, but John Zwetsloot does also contribute with music.”

This is also happening in a whole underground. Do you think that underground will survive?

„I don’t care anymore… I did 4-5 years ago.”

When are you finished the music?

„What do you mean?”

What is your intentions?

„To do original death metal the dark way!”

At the end: What do you send to the hungarian fans?

„Hail to all Death Metal fans in Transsylvania, if there are any… please contact us!”

Any adds here?

„Wait through darkness and bring evil… The wind of mayhem is reality!”

Well, the intie is end here, I’ve forgotten, that Jon does once time a synth/industrial project called: De Infernali.

Jon Andreas Nödtveidt (28 June 1975 – 13 August 2006)

No problem, and yeah, great find, the Internet is an open grave.

By the way, there is a typo in the transcription; in Jon's closing he actually says Wail and not Wait: "Wail through darkness and bring evil..." and that is an stylistic figure later to appear in the amazing track Soulreaper: "Wail, oh desolate gale, bring forth your bitter winds, wail through heart and through soul".
