Candlelight Records confirms the first string of US performances by Sweden’s DISMEMBER in over five years. Set to kick off September 29, the dates will visit East and Midwest cities before concluding on October 14 in Montreal.
Along with labelmates ENTOMBED (new album expected Fall 2006), DISMEMBER have been widely credited with the creation of the Scandinavian Death Metal sound. Nearly two decades into a respected career, the band still is as fresh and vital today. The God That Never Was, the band’s latest record available in stores nationwide now, showcases a finely-ground assault that commands attention. Swaying from war to religion, lyrically the band tackle new grounds all the while delivering their classic, primitive and always super tight death metal. “Musically we’re trying to do better with every album,” explains drummer/producer Fred Estby. “Most of us are in our 30’s and we have got to prove ourselves a little bit more every time. We fought hard with this album.”
Formed in 1988 in Stockholm, DISMEMBER have an extensive worldwide recording, sales and touring history. The band’s entire catalog was reissued in 2005 featuring previously unavailable live and demo recordings; all available now via Candlelight Records.
