Vocalist Roberto Lizárraga of Mexican death metal act Infinitum Obscure has issued the following statement regarding the anniversary of the death of Dissection's Jon Nödtveidt, who died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in 2006:

"4 years ago my good friend Jon Nödtveidt left this physical realm. Many people criticize me for commemorating this date or for having a fascination with Jon and his music, but they do not know what lied within, the unity that which united both of our persons. When I was a teenager I was fascinated with Jon's concept about Death as I shared the exact same vision but I had not written about it or expressed myself about it just yet.

"I always believed in my mind that me and Jon would one day meet and address these topics. Years passed and life being as silly as it is, lead to THAT. A friendship grew, many other friends and close ones criticized it but they did not understand. 5 years ago, I was able to share the stage with the mighty Dissection and Jon in the audience watching me directly in my eyes as I sang and played 'The Final Aeon.' A few months later I met my biggest acknowledgment in my entire life as a musician.

"In 2006 my band Infinitum Obscure was scheduled to open for Dissection in New York City and L.A. as direct support. Plans fell through as Jon was denied entry to the USA, a few weeks later, Jon passed on. A few weeks ago, on July 6th 2010, Infinitum Obscure was finally able to perform in New York City and it was a special show, full house, great reception. To those who were there you might remember that I dedicated a few words to Jon and it it because, we finally fulfilled a part of what me and him had planned that was left undone.

"Today all that remains is memories, and deep DEEP sense of gratitude to you, my friend, my partner, Jon. People criticize me but do not understand. Tonight, again I raise my chalice in your honor, Jon! Only I am Illuminated."
