Dissection is 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 also released a short EP entitled 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, called 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. Nödtveidt formed an entirely new line-up, consisting of Set Teitan (rhythm guitars & backing vocals) and Tomas Asklund (drums).
In 2006, Dissection released their third full length album Reinkaos through their own label, in association with The End Records. The lyrics on the Reinkaos album contain magical formulae from the book, and are based on the teachings of, the “Misanthropic Luciferian Order”.
The band played its final European concert in Stockholm on Midsummer, 24 June 2006. Jon Nödtveidt (aged 31) shot himself somewhere between August 14th and 16th. Swedish police found him in his apartment the 16th of August 2006. He killed himself because he felt he had achieved all that he could and was meant to in this life. According to some who actually knew him this was probably planned ever since he got out of jail.
