Reactivated Swedish death metallers Dissection were joined by newly reappointed Mayhem singer Attila Csihar (ex-Tormentor, Abygor) for renditions of two old-school black metal hymns, "Elizabeth Bathory" (Tormentor) and "Freezing Moon" (Mayhem), during the band's appearance at Kultiplex in Budapest, Hungary Wednesday night (Nov. 17). According to one eyewitness, "the packed house went absolutely crazy."
Dissection have just released their much-anticipated comeback single/EP, "Maha Kali", via Escapi Music/Screaming Ferret Wreckords. Armed with a fresh lineup, consisting of mainman Jon Nödtveidt (vocals and guitar), Set Teitan (guitar, Aborym, Bloodline), Brice Leclercq (bass guitar, Nightrage) and Thomas Asklund (drums, Dark Funeral, Infernal, Dawn), Dissection describe the new CD as "a hymn to the wrathful black Hindu goddess of Mahapralaya, the great dissolution of cosmos, Jai Maha Kali!" An audio sample of the title track is available at this location.
Nödtveidt recently told Finland's Sonera Plaza that the group's next full-length effort will surface in the fall of 2005. "We will continue touring all around the world (probably South America and so on) during the winter/spring 2005 and we will also be playing summer festivals all around Europe and so on. We have about 11 new songs that we are going to record in the spring so the next album [will likely come] out in the autumn."
Dissection filmed their headlining performance in Stockholm on Oct. 30, 2004 for an upcoming DVD, tentatively due next year. The as-yet-untitled disc will also feature a band documentary.
