Staff review by
Dissection is a cult name in the world of extreme metal. In a time when Euronymous and the Inner Circle had declared war to false black and death metal, "The Somberlain" and the first demos of the band exploded like dynamites in the underground scene combining the groove and aggression of death metal with the essence and grim feeling of black metal. Jon Nodtveidt and his nocturnal companions had achieved something extremely difficult for the current time, they had become acceptable by both the death and black metal audience shaking the underground scene.

Perfect example of melodic black/death. Soaring leads and it never seems to run out of riffs. Great production too.

Great production too.

Fun fact: when Dan Swanö was mixing this album together, he was suffering from an intense fever. He doesn't have pleasant memories from that time, but it all worked out perfectly in the end, as we can see!
