CD Reviews

Beauty Shines On The Somberlain
Bill Lumbergh | Initech | 10/17/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'm not the biggest black metal fan you'll ever meet. I enjoy my share of bands, but there was one band that is an essential for either the black metal fan or the melodic death metal fan. That's right, they were Dissection.

I am glad that an essential album like this is rereleased and is receive better distribution. The album is just amazing beyond belief. The late Jon Nodtveidt was one of the greatest guitarists out in the black metal scene. Ole Ohman is a double bass machine! And with the dark feel of a black metal album embedded in their melodic talents, no wonder this album is such a legendary work of art.

But wait! There's more! This reissue comes with a bonus disc as well! The first two tracks are a live recording recorded in 1995 but not released until a decade later. Next, we have the band's "Into Infinite Obscurity" 7" covering tracks 3 to 5. Tracks 6 to 9 are the 1992 demo, and track 10 is "The Grief Prophecy Demo" recorded in 1990. Tracks 3 to 10 are remastered. The final 3 tracks are closing rehearsal tracks from 1990-1991, all remastered as well. And no, they're NOT re-recorded. There's a difference between that and remastering.

If you're new to this band, or just love Dissection, pick this up. It's inexpensive and you get a lot out of this reissue. Also, check out the "Storm of the Light's Bane" reissue as well."
