DISSECTION Cancel Shows In Chile, Venezuela

Reactivated Swedish death metallers DISSECTION have been foced to cancel this weekend's appearances in Chile and Venezuela due to the "failure of promoter Jorge L. Chuna of Metal Aliance to fulfill his contractual commitment, particularly as it relates to covering the cost of plane tickets," according to a posting on the group's web site.

As previously reported, DISSECTION are expecting to complete the recordings for their as-yet-untitled new album by the end of September. The band entered the studio on February 2 to begin recording their long-awaited third album, the group's first release since 1995's classic album "Storm of the Light's Bane". The recording is taking place at Black Syndicate Studios in Stockholm, Sweden, with DISSECTION mainman Jon Nödtveidt's brother Emil Nödtveidt (a.k.a. THE DEATHSTARS' Nightmare Industries) and Skinny Kangur at the helm. Eleven songs are being recorded for the album and the material is being regarded by the band as "a work of sonic black magic, actively channelling the anti-cosmic current 218." Rough-mix versions of two new songs from DISSECTION's forthcoming CD are available for download on their official web site. Check out the tracks "Xeper-I-Set" (mp3, lyrics) and "Starless Aeon" (mp3, lyrics).

DISSECTION — who recently announced the addition of bassist Haakon Forwald (a.k.a. General K; MYRKSKOG, DISIPLIN) to the group's ranks — are currently in negotiations with several labels for the upcoming release (which is planned for the late 2005/early 2006), but the recordings are being completely financed by the band itself independent of any record company. A final decision about the group's new label home is expected to be made soon.
