"It is with enormous sadness that we receive the news of the death of Jon Nödtveidt. Recently he and the [rest of the] DISSECTION band were here in São Paulo, Brazil and [we spent] 11 days together, [during which time he] always demonstrated his devotion and professionalism.

"Somber Music had enormous pleasure to work with him — we released here in our land the classic [DISSECTION] albums 'The Somberlain', 'Storm Of The Light's Bane', 'Live Legacy' and the new album, 'Reinkaos', along with the reissues of 'The Somberlain' and 'Storm Light's Bane', both in double versions."
