DISSECTION frontman Jon Nödtveidt has committed suicide, informed sources have told More details will be made available shortly. Nödtveidt formed DISSECTION in 1989 and released two full-length albums with the group – "The Somberlain" (1993) and "Storm Of The Light’s Bane" (1995) – before he was convicted in Sweden of felony murder of 37-year-old homosexual Algerian Josef Ben Maddour in 1997. He was released from prison in 2004, at which point he restarted DISSECTION. DISSECTION announced in May that they would split-up immediately following their final performances in support of the recently released CD, "Reinkaos". The band was subsequently forced to cancel their two previously announced appearances in North America (Sept. 1 at the House of Blues in West Hollywood, CA and Sept. 6 at B.B. King Blues Club in New York City) after Nödtveidt was denied legal entry into the United States as a result of his conviction. DISSECTION’s most recent album, "Reinkaos", was released in May on The End Records.

On Monday August 21 a special limited edition boxset of DEICIDE‘s new album "The Stench Of Redemption" will be released. In addition to the CD, this box features four band member art cards, a massive double-sided colour poster and a bonus track (a cover of DEEP PURPLE’s ‘Black Night’!!!). You can view the box here.
