Swedish metallers DISSECTION have posted the following message on their official web site:
"The time is running fast towards the final gig and there is no turning back. The Dissection Midsummer Massacre will mark the end of DISSECTION as well as the climax in the band's history. It will also be the first time the band will perform a gig based on the material of 'Reinkaos'.
Commented DISSECTION mainman Jon Nödtveidt: "We will play most of the songs from 'Reinkaos'. We have been working with merging some of the old songs into it all as well, and it works surprisingly well. It's going to be a lengthy set of both old and new."
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.
