Sweden's DISSECTION have commented on the cancellation of their June 17 concert in Tel-Aviv, Israel. According to a posting on the group's official web site, the show was called off "due to practical and technical reasons." A DISSECTION management representative added, "Until the last minute it was still unclear if the proper technical/practical arrangements had been made. There have also been indications of sabotage from rival local promoters. We are very sorry for the fans but in the end too many things were still unclear."
As previously reported, DISSECTION have announced the following live dates outside their final European appearance on June 24, 2006 at Dissection Midsummer Massacre '06 in Stockholm, Sweden:
Sep. 01 - Los Angeles, CA @ House of Blues
Sep. 06 - New York City, NY @ B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
DISSECTION released their new album, "Reinkaos", last month on The End Records.
Escapi Music has set a July 28 European release date (August 1 in North America) for the new DISSECTION DVD, entitled "Rebirth of Dissection". With Jon Nödtveidt's release from an eight-year prison sentence on September 6, 2004, he recruited a completely new lineup. First to join the ranks was ex-DARK FUNERAL drummer Tomas Asklund, followed shortly by bass player Brice Leclerq (ex-NIGHTRAGE). After auditioning guitarists in the summer of 2004, ex-ABORYM member Set Teitan finally entered to complete the lineup. Embarking on a vast European march of triumph, supported by Swedish black metallers WATAIN, DISSECTION's "Rebirth of Dissection European Tour 2004" turned out to be a huge success. This DVD includes lots of extras and bonus material recorded from this tour, and shows why the band are again at the top of the black metal genre.
On June 27, 2006, DISSECTION's classic "The Somberlain" and "Storm of the Light's Bane" albums will be reissued in the U.S. by The End. The remastered CDs will come with multiple bonus tracks, previously unreleased material and new layouts. All three DISSECTION albums will also be released on gatefold vinyl this summer.
