Dissection Frontman Jon Nödtveidt Commits Suicide


Dissection frontman Jon Nödtveidt has committed suicide. Nödtveidt's death was confirmed by the Swedish distributor Sound Pollution, whose staff has worked with Dissection throughout the band's career. A posting on the Sound Pollution web site, www.soundpollution.se, reads: "RIP Jon Nödtveidt 1975-2006. Condolences from Sound Pollution & Black Lodge."

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 it would split up imediately following its final performances in support of its recently released CD, "Reinkaos". The band was subsequently forced to cancel its 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.

"[...] The Satanist dies strong, not by age, disease or depression, and he chooses death before dishonor! [...]"

IMHO Reinkaos was a dishonor towards the memory we all had of Dissection before Nödtveidt resurrected his band. Everything he has done during the last year was kinda lame and this is the climax of it all...

And he done the ritual thing, (Candles, and the satanic bible next to him), wich I found just even more stupid then his suicide.

to all of you preaching the "weakness" thing..was he supposed to ask you first?the guy decided to let go ok?who are you to judge for fucks sake.a man can take his life if he sees no point in living and gets no joy in life.are they supposed to torture themselves by living just to satisfy you?if you would go and tell a man who is commiting suicide that he is weak he would probably laugh at you and say go fuck yourself because at that moment he has way bigger problems than your stupid "strong" point of views...

Being slanderous and wreckless like that just won't get you anywhere, if you wanted to be heard, go commit suicide yourself for all we care.

The option was open, Jon took it. We now know the reasons, so all that speculation was totally useless, just as I thought it would be. Of course we can't do anything about the situation. People commit suicide for different reason, however, some may do it for the same reason, say, regret or whatever thought may be haunting them. I'd say people would doubt others at that crucial point/verging on committing suicide, but seriously, they wouldn't be abusive unless they felt that was also for a reason. Go back to your corner and leave the MS users alone.

I never said or suggested you were suicidal, I was just suggesting a "crazy" solution...

Telling me to cheer up because it's Christmas is just digressing from the topic at hand, please don't do that.

I wasn't trying to teach you anything, just highlighting some examples as to why people do it.

Well, I wasn't telling you to leave as such, but leave the topic alone. We don't need people to insult other peoples point of views. We are ALL entitled to an opinion after all, and it shouldn't be shunned in such a way, so really, calling them "stupid" point of views was quite inappropriate.

ok in the stupid part you are right.but you weren't so respectful to me either.i said cheer up in sake of finishing the tense situation and i wasn't that serious beacuse i dont care about christmas further from i will get drunk with friends.it is unnecessary to say harsh words beacuse of sth that takes so little part in each other's lives.so peace man.have a nice day

Wow, havent seen this the whole time Ive been here but in general Im saddenned that a musician I love pass away though, but in general if you do look at the pillars of MLO they do state that it is better to take your own life than to lye to yourself. Thats my theory, maybe he actually realized reinkaos was a major dissapointment.

So it sux hes gone. I dont agree with suicide, even if it is to protect your own honor, but what it boils down is his choice, and I guess his band members knew and didnt try to stop him. Which makes even more surreal.

I agree with Beastofmetal here. Suicide is never epic, imo, no matter what the context.

Well if you take into account kamikaze missions and banzai charges and the like, or religious suicide, or ritual suicide, there can be a certain amount of beauty or even practicality to it.

Maybe there was more to him than meets the eye - maybe the guilt of killing another man consumed him and he couldn't live another day with that burden. I'm not saying it makes his decision any less of an easy way out, and it certainly doesn't make it worthy of a story, but it's not like one day he was just like "meh, life's gay" and opted out.
