Dissection Members Comment On Singer's Death

As reported earlier, the surviving members of DISSECTION have now officially confirmed the death of the band's mainman, Jon Nödtveidt. The group's statement on the matter reads as follows:

"As rumours have started to spread we feel obliged to confirm Jon Nödtveidt's death.

"Jon Nödtveidt was a man who lived his life according to his convictions and True Will. A couple of days ago he chose to end his life by his own hands. As a true Satanist he led his life in the way he wanted and ended it when he felt that he had fulfilled his self-created destiny. Not everyone will have understanding or acceptance for his personal path in this life and beyond, but all must respect his choice.


"Those of us who have met him in his last days can assure that he was more focussed, happier and stronger than ever. It is our full conviction that he left this world of lies with a scornful laughter, knowing that he had fulfilled everything that he had set up for himself to accomplish. The empty space that he leaves behind will be filled with the dark essence that he manifested through his life and black-magical work. His legacy and Luciferian Fire will live on through those few who truly knew him and appreciated his work for what it really was and still is. As our brother's goal in life and death never was to 'Rest in Peace', we will instead wish him victories in all battles to come, until the Acosmic Destiny has been fulfilled.

"For the glory of the Dark Gods and the Wrathful Chaos! 218"

sounds like pity is the last thing he needs or wants. Reminds me of a line from a poem (I think) of some sort;

"And Life, the shadow of death"

Pity about the band split. Another horrendously metal outfit disappears...

you know....

Ya gotta give him one thing to his credit.....he was true to his word.
Other than that, Suicide is not a wise choice. Has anyone read The Divine Comedy (Dante's Inferno)? Well.....if ya commit suicide, you end up in infamous 7th plain of hell as a dead thorn tree in the wood of suicides.....sounds like real f***ing fun to me.......

first i think life is like a battle fieled - so i can"t accept the way Jon Nödtveidt finished his life . it is a shame to run from every thing and bring a gun shot your self and say fairwell people cya at transelvania . no it doesn"t make sence at all .
may be jon has some proplems after get out of jail and i realy feel him ( every one in this late seven years become something) but this not a good reason to kill yourself jon .
and even if jon felt that his journey in our world is done that is ok cancel dissection & look for a new way in life - take a tour around the world - start a family - do anything away from the music at least stay under the son jon don"t leave us like this .
i still can"t bielive that jon is gone it hard for me cause jon was a life mark for me and for a lot of my friends .
Jon was metal stage monster - a great guitares ( just thorns of crimson death solo or frozen or nights blood - where dead angeals lie solos are enogh to give him full respect ) an awsome vocal yeah his vocal tune is very effective try to lestin to unhallowed ) - a great lyrics writer ( read where dead angels lie please ) .
Jon was one of the people who cary the black metal on thier backs he was in every band giving support - ask what can i do for you guys - he was with dead and euronemas from mayhem and he helped them as they helped him .
for me jon was a strong native man did what he want in the time he want cause that was what he want .
and when he went to jail he face it with a big smile and spent 7 years in jail never try to run - never think about oh this is the end - no he take it and all he was thinking about is get out and start again .
and for his satanic bielives and the connection between this and black metal .
i don"t think that there is any connection between jons bielives and the black metal lyrics aims cause it is like that most of the black metal legends are hard rock & heavy metal fans all they look for is some respict - be famouse - found some one to lestin to them - not more not less
but for jon it is hard to bielive that he waste his life for such a satanic bielive no i can"t accept this at all maybe he was looking for smoe answers - some aims - something missed yeah maybe we will never know .
well at the end all i can say about Jon Nödtveidt :-
\m/ is for a lot of people you were nothing but for a few people you were every thing \m/
R.I.P Jon Nödtveidt no one will ever hurt you again .
you had make it black to keep it dark and reach the gloomy skies .
close the lights Jon Nödtveidt is gone ( fairwell soul reaper ) . born in 1975 - leave in 16-8- 2006) .

Does everybody think that life is a joke? What the hell is wrong with you people!
Do you think this is some fairy tale that ends any way you think it does, you dont get to make up the ending! Yes you can end your life, but you arent going to "TRANSYLVANIA" come on be f***ing realistic about this sh**. This dude was an idiot, a nobody who couldnt handle the problems that come with living so he pussed out and shot himself! Nothing you go through is to much to handle, like they say "if it dosent kill us it makes us stronger"!

Suicide is not the answer for no one, you know i may sound like a complete a$$ who has no compassion for a musician, but i really do feel sorry for this guy. He is not cool, he is not a genius, he is a moron who needed years of therapy!

His band is bullsh** with their stupid comments on it too! Nothing this guy did will live on! His music and his impact on people died with him!

God try and show some mercy on his soul!

Suicide is stupid and selfish. It's a sign of weakness, or in the case of Nodveidt, it's a sign of delusional religious beliefs. Satanists and Pagans are just as mislead as Christians.

You'll touch God's hand
You'll taste God's breath
Because you'll never see the second coming
Life's too short to be focused on insanity
I've seen the ways of Devil
I'll take God any day
f*** Satan

Well, suffer (and the rest of the people and your opinions), don't think suicide is stupid nor selfish. sign of weakness? hahaha, yeah, typical... Listen, it doesnt matter what i think... no matter what u all people think indeed. The fact is that he is dead. End of story. The rest is just opinions and lot of stupidity. Let's people do whatever they want to do and let's stop these nonsense speeches. It's really easy to judge and give opinions (wrong, most of them)... Let's see things objectively and stop the crap. The crap just makes people angry and the world a worse place to live. Anyway, guess you are all old enough to know this... So...
pity i couldnt see them live.
and good for him (in my opinion) to have the fierceness of doing what lots of people consider something coward... HA.
