Swedish Black/Death Metal band.

Jon Nödtveidt (guitars, vocals) and Peter Palmdahl (bass) used to play in a Thrash band known as Siren's Yell. When the group disbanded in 1989, the two members joined forces with Ole Öhman and formed Dissection. Their debut EP, "Into Infinite Obscurity" was released in 1991 but their first full length, "The Somberlain" was only released in 1993. Between the releases the band was joined by John Zweetslot on guitar. The album allowed the band gain popularity in the underground and above, also thanks to the connection between the members and infamous Mayhem (the album was dedicated to Euronymous).

John Zweetslot was eventually kicked out due to lazyness in 1994 and was replaced by Johan Norman and the band recorded their second fullenght album titled "Storm Of The Light's Bane" which was released on Nuclear blast and is cosidered one of the best albums in the genre. Ole Öhman got kicked out of the band soon after the release and the band was replaced by Tobias Kjellgren and the band toured the world. In 1997 all of the members, except Jon, either quit the band or was kicked out and Jon started to put together a new line-up. Following that mishappening, Jon Nödtveidt was arrested for killing a 37-year old homosexual and Dissection was no more....or, at least, that's what they made their fans believe for a while.

"The Past Is Alive" was released following the arrest as a collection of older recordings. "Storm Of The Light's Bane" and "Where Dead Angels Lie" were re-released into one big album in 2002 with "Storm Of The Light's Bane/Where Dead Angels Lie".

The band officialy declared their comeback in 2003. "Live Legacy", a 1997 live recording at the Wacken Open Air festival was released in the same period.

On the 30th of October 2004 Dissection made it's triumphant return with it's first show in seven year at Arenan in Stockholm. The show was witnessed by 3000 fans and was filmed for a DVD which was released in the summer of 2006. In November 2004 they released the single "Maha Kali". During the end of 2004 and mid 2005 the band did extensive touring and started the recording of their third full-length album "Reinkaos" wich was released on the 30th of April 2006 on their own label Black Horizon Music. They also re-released their two previous albums with extensive bonus material, that consisted of rare and unreleased recordings, in June 2006.

On the 24th of June the band made it's last show ever at Hovet, Stockholm. The show was filmed and recorded for a upcoming DVD and CD release.

Jon Nödtveidt commited suicide sometime between the 14th and 16th of August 2006.
