DISMEMBER - Soon to Be Dead

Info


Zatímco jsme si mysleli, že DISMEMBER po deseti letech absence na pódiích už napořád zůstane na věčném odpočinku (In Death's Sleep), vrátili se znovuzrozeni v plné síle. K údivu všech jsou zpátky v úplně původní sestavě, která nahrála nadčasové klasiky, jako je Like an Ever Flowing Stream, Indecent and Obscene nebo EP Pieces. Ať už jste viděli jejich první koncert u nás v červnu 1992 s Napalm Death a Obituary v této původní sestavě či jste byli svědky jejich strhujícího vystoupení na OEF 2006 anebo pro ty z vás, kteří je ještě neviděli vůbec, je tohle vaše jedinečná šance zažít zásadní milník v historii death metalu. Jak jsme osobně viděli na Scandinavia Deathfestu v letošním roce, DISMEMBER je ve vrcholné formě a k odpočinku do Casket Garden se ještě nechystá.

Jejich energické vystoupení je nabité jejich klasickými švédskými vály v maximálním nasazení, které ale nemusí vydržet dlouho. Dva členové kapely žijí dlouhodobě v USA, zbytek kapely ve Švédsku a je potřeba mít na paměti, že logistika jejich živých vystoupení je složitá a nemusí mít dlouhého trvání. Dle jejich slov již kapela nikdy nevyrazí na žádné turné, jen na pár vybraných festivalových vystoupení. S jejich rezervovaným přístupem ke koncertování na mamutích metalových festivalech jsme o to více nadšeni, že máme tuto death metalovou legendu zpátky na OEF. Sotva totiž existuje místo s lepší undergroundovou atmosférou než legendární trutnovský amfiteátr. Přesně zde na tomto trutnovském Bojišti, za nímž nedaleko rostou opravdové železné kříže (Where Ironcrosses Grow), které značí skutečné masové hroby jedné bitvy z roku 1866, mrtví opět povstanou znovuzrození v plné síle. From Dream to Dream THEY Have Always Been Like an Ever Flowing Stream: DISMEMBER!!!

Bio

Formation and Nuclear Blast-era (1988–2002)

The band formed in Stockholm in 1988. After a hiatus, during which several members joined Carnage, the band began recording in earnest in 1991 and released their debut album Like an Ever Flowing Stream that year. The album is today heralded as a milestone for the burgeoning Swedish death metal scene and established the band's fanbase, which was further bolstered by the controversy surrounding one song in particular, "Skin Her Alive". The song prompted an obscenity charge in the United Kingdom, against which the band successfully defended themselves.

In 1992, Dismember released the Pieces EP, and the following year continued with second full-length Indecent & Obscene which featured their song "Dreaming in Red"; the "Dreaming in Red" videoclip was shown in MTV's Headbangers Ball. According to an interview with fellow Nuclear Blast group Benediction inmetallian.com, Dismember and the said band got into a business dispute and eventually a fisticuff at this stage over tour arrangements and moneys owed.

Like many of the other Scandinavian death metal bands, Dismember began softening their sound in the mid-1990s, with 1995's Massive Killing Capacity more melodic approaches, which had a good public response. Nevertheless, they attempted a return to style with 1997's Death Metal, which ultimately became a sales disappointment. Their last album for Nuclear Blast was 2000's Hate Campaign.

Switching labels (2003–2006)
Around 2003, Dismember set a new path and signed for Karmageddon Records. In 2004, they released their sole album with that label titled Where Ironcrosses Grow which some thought sounds close to Hate Campaign and was inspired by Iron Maiden and Autopsy.

They switched record companies again in 2005, signing to Regain Records, which bought the rights to their earlier albums as well and released them as luxury digipak editions. In 2006, Dismember released their seventh album The God That Never Was continuing in the style of its predecessor. The band spent February on the road in Europe. In November 2006, Dismember toured Europe as part of the Masters of Death tour, with Grave, Unleashed, Entombed and Exterminator.

Split with Fred Estby and final album (2007–2010)
After the release of The God That Never Was and some touring, Estby left the band "after long and careful consideration". In a posting on the official site on April 20, 2007, Estby cites the demands of touring and the needs of his family as key reasons for him leaving the band. His statements appears as "My decision to put my family in first hand makes it impossible to keep on touring and commit to the band full time. I want to thank all the fans, friends, bands and all the other cool people I've met through the years and I wish Dismember all the best in the future. Fred."

In April 2008, they released their eighth album, Dismember.

Dismember released a two-disc DVD titled Under Blood Red Skies in late July 2009. The live concerts were filmed in the Netherlands and at the 2008 Party San Open Air Festival in Bad Berka, Germany. The DVD also included a documentary and interviews with band members. The cover art was created by Erik Danielsson of Trident Art.

Breakup and reunion (2011–present)
On October 16, 2011, bassist Tobias Cristiansson revealed in a statement that Dismember had broken up: "After 23 years, Dismember have now decided to quit. We wish to thank all our fans for your support."

On a possible reunion, drummer Fred Estby told Invisible Oranges in August 2016: "People were telling me that all the time. So maybe we should try to do some shows and get everything back. We always owned our rights to the albums and shirts, but there's still loose ends to tie up. I just wanted to set the record straight and hopefully do some shows in the future."

In February 2018, rumors were afloat that Dismember was planning to reunite that year to celebrate the 30th anniversary of its formation. A reunion was teased that summer when the band posted random photos on their Facebook account. After nearly a year of rumors, it was announced on January 14, 2019 that the original lineup of Dismember has reunited and will perform together for the first time in over 20 years at Scandinavia Deathfest that October.
