Ah guts, their last two were killer - they seemed like the last of the breed of Swedish dm bands who still wanted to carry the torch without people being able to call them Entombed rip-offs. Apparantly they were great in concert too.

Damn, and they didn't tour North America since 2006. It's a shame since their debut is one of the best death metal albums ever recorded.

Yea,this news bites. Never got to see them live,did see Entombed i 98. Dismember put out some underrated,overlooked death metal in the 00's. Entombeds sound has changed so much,i really dont follow them anymore. Guess all we have now is Unleashed,another underrated death metal band.

I saw Dismember play back in '00. I also saw Grave and Unleashed and interviewed all of those bands, but haven't seen nor talked to Entombed. Entombed led me to Dismember. I liked Dismember because they reminded me of Entombed. While I lost interest in Entombed around "To Ride...," I've stayed a fan of Dismember. I remember thinking, "wow, a death metal band that sounds like Iron Maiden at times." I heard them before hearing Gothenburg bands take that route. Unleashed has always kept that old school metal take on DM, too.
