I've only been into Dissection for a short time but i've been hearing about how good they are for a while now. Dissection have the intensity that all good extreme metal bands should have, they also have the atmosphere that all good black metal bands should have, and on top of all that they play everything to an extremely high standard. The Somberlain is heavy, melodic, brutal, and has real depth. Jon the vocalist and lead guitarist has real conviction when it comes to his beliefs and this comes through in the music, dissection arn't just a gimmick they are the real deal. listen to this album and be blown away by what can only be described as a masterclass in black metal.
if you like extreme music and have not got this buy it now you will not be disappointed

i have to admit, i did this backwards. i recently started listening to watain, and a friend of mine said that i should check out this album as this is where watain got the ideas from. i have to say he was right in one respect but wrong in another. i'm not taking anything from watain, they are an amazing band and if you like dissection you should check them out, but where my friend was wrong is that he didn't tell just how good this album is. this is quickly becoming one of my favorite extreme metal albums. so far this is the only album by this band i have heard but i will certainly be getting the other albums. this is an essential purchase for any fan of extreme music.
