Guitarist/vocalist Jon Nödtveidt of the reactivated Swedish death metallers DISSECTION has issued the following statement via the group's official web site:
"There have been rumors and allegations surrounding the band and I, we want our fans to know and to make it a point that it is not and never has been part of our policy or philosophy to be a part of racism and what it stands for. DISSECTION is a SATANIC band and the REBIRTH OF DISSECTION tour is our focus into bringing all our ANTI-COSMIC METAL OF DEATH!"
As previously reported, DISSECTION will headline Norway's Inferno Festival on March 26. They will also be performing at the Wacken Open Air festival in Germany in early August.
DISSECTION released a comeback single/EP, "Maha Kali", last November via Escapi Music/Screaming Ferret Wreckords. The group's current lineup is completed by Set Teitan (guitar, ABORYM, BLOODLINE), Brice Leclercq (bass guitar, NIGHTRAGE) and Thomas Asklund (drums, DARK FUNERAL, INFERNAL, DAWN).
