DISSECTION was not actually broke up, it was disbanded. Jon Nödtveidt (founder/guitarist/vocalist) was found dead in his apartment in Hässelby, a suburb of Stockholm, by an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound inside a circle of lit candles on August 13th, 2006. Apparently he got too much of a dose in occultism? He was a member of the Misanthropic Luciferian Order founded in 1995 at which he described,
"MLO is a Chaos-Gnostic order, which seek the true light of Lucifer through the study, development and practice of all dark, gnostic and Satanic magical systems. Our goal is to create a synthesis between the dark traditions of all aeons, this way creating the occult keys that shall open the gates to the forthcoming endless dark aeon. My status within the order is the one of a full member of the second grade and a Priest of Satan. To become a candidate one must first of all already be an Anti-cosmic Satanist and actively practicing black magician. He/She must wholeheartedly sympathize and share the misanthropic and anti-cosmic values of the order, and then be ready to dedicate his/her entire existence to following his/her true will in accordance to the dark gods. Becoming an initiate is a long and hard process and can take several years."Previously, Nödtveidt was convicted of being an accessory to the 1997 murder of Josef ben Meddour, an Algerian gay man. He restarted Dissection upon his release from prison in 2004. Before that Jon and DISSECTION had released two very successful albums, The Somberlain (1993) and Storm of the Light's Bane (1995). Two years after he was released, DISSECTION was on full mode again, recording this album, Reinkaos then touring.
His suicide was very unfortunate, since his last album has the potential despite some criticism from the older fans. Although it was not as technical and complicated as before, Reinkaos still maintains its melodic structure. The production was clear and playing was sturdy. It was a different album from the previous two. That is why I don't have preference to any of the DISSECTION album since each of them has their own strength.
