Dissection Bio:

The legendary Swedish Underground Metal Pioneers make their long-anticipated Return with the Release of Reinkaos Considering it's been 11 years since the release of their last full-length album, and all that has happened in the intervening years, it becomes obvious that the expectations for Dissection's return are very high. Reinkaos boldly presents their unique brand of sinister and heavy music, Anti-Cosmic Metal of Death. The mysterious, sinister atmospheres of their first phase are intact, while several new elements take the band into realms unexplored. The ritual emanations of Reinkaos simmered for 11 years in the mind and heart of singer and guitarist Jon Nödtveidt. Crafted for nearly a year in the studio, the black magic was long in the making, its manifestation a tale of constant struggle, due to both internal and external turbulence. Through all that affected Nödtveidt and Dissection - from occult practice, years in prison, rumors, violence, death, chaos - to the victorious Rebirth of Dissection in 2004, Reinkaos emerges all the better for it. The Rebirth of Dissection, introducing Set Teitan (guitars) and Tomas Asklund (drums), proved the band to be back with a vengeance, which is also clearly expressed on Reinkaos. The album is the first release on the band's own label, Black Horizon Music. "We have invested our souls in this album, gone through fire and brimstone to make everything work", says Nödtveidt. From the martial symphonics of Nexion 218, to the vitriolic Beyond The Horizon and the apocalyptic Starless Aeon, right through to the closing notes of the hypnotic Dark Mother Divine and triumphant God of Forbidden Light, there's no doubt that Dissection is moving forward with strength, experience and a wealth of dark intentions. With the band's previous albums, The Somberlain (1993) and Storm Of The Light's Bane (1995), to be reissued by Black Horizon Music (in the U.S. by stateside partners The End Records) and a documentary in the making, 2006 is truly the year of Dissection's return!
