Dissection Name New Single

Reactivated Swedish death metallers Dissection, featuring guitarist/vocalist Jon Nödtvedt, have set "Maha Kali" as the title of their upcoming single.

"Maha Kali", described by the band as "a hymn to the wrathful black hindu goddess of Mahapralaya, the great dissolution of cosmos, Jai Maha Kali," will initially only be available directly from Dissection via their official web site and on tour.

As previously reported, Dissection are currently in the studio with a full lineup, working on their first studio recording since 1995's classic album "Storm Of The Light's Bane".

Nödtveidt was recently released from prison after spending seven years behind the bars for murdering an Algerian homosexual. A short-lived collaboration with former Emperor drummer Bård "Faust" Eithun ended in December over "the demands of Dissection's Satanic concept." A documentary DVD and a new studio album are expected sometime in 2005.

Faust Leaves Dissection

Former Emperor drumemr Bård "Faust" Eithun has officially parted ways with Dissection. According to an official press release, Eithun made the decision after a meeting with Dissection guitarist/vocalist Jon Nödtvedt in Stockholm, Sweden. Bård "explained that he has been tense about what impression the whole deal with Dissection would do to him in practice and that he has come to the conclusion that he can't stand behind and live up to the demands of Dissection's Satanic concept, with the inevitable result that he has to leave the band. A decision Faust and Jon made in mutual agreement after discussing the problem."

"There are only two alternatives for us: doing Dissection wholeheartedly and with complete devotion, or not at all," explained Jon.

Faust explained: "There came to a point where I felt I had to compromise my own philosophy of life and maybe even go against some of my personal views and ideas. Evidently, the concept and the ideology was more emphasized and underlined in the band than I was originally aware of. In my eyes, the Satanic concept got totalitarian and it shaped the rest of band. Eventually, it all reminds me more of a cult than a band with individual musicians. My intention with Dissection was primarily musical; I viewed it as an honor to perform the old classic tracks as well as the new ones Jon has made during the last years. For me, anything else comes secondly, and it would be wrong to put a lot of my time and energy into something I couldn`t fully represent. Not to mention, it would be a waste of the rest of the band`s time and energy as well.

It`s very unfortunate that it came to this ending and I wish Jon the best of luck finding musicians that can stand behind the band 100%.”. More...
