Reactivated Swedish death metallers Dissection have revealed their new lineup on the eve of their headlining performance in Stockholm on Saturday (Oct. 30). Joining mainman Jon Nödtveidt (vocals and guitar) in the new formation are Set Teitan (guitar, Aborym, Bloodline), Brice Leclercq (bass guitar, Nightrage) and Thomas Asklund (drums, Infernal, Dawn, Dark Funeral).

As previously reported, an audio sample of the new Dissection single, "Maha Kali," has been posted online at this location.

"Maha Kali" (view cover), described by the reactivated Swedish death metallers 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.

Dissection recently spent time in the studio working on their first studio recording since 1995's classic album "Storm Of The Light's Bane."

Dissection guitarist/vocalist Jon Nödtvedt was released from prison several months ago 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.
