Re-release of Jon Nödtveidt’s (Dissection) project – De Infernali

September 14th, 2010
De-Infernali - Symphonia-De-Infernali

De-Infernali - Symphonia-De-Infernali

Jon Nödtveidt was best known for being the founding member of the Swedish black/death metal group Dissection, which was strongly associated with Anti-Cosmic Satanism and the Occult. The group disbanded in 2006 after Nödtveidt after his sudden death. Not many people know that Jon was involved in a number of musical projects, such as The Black, Nifelheim, Ophthalamia, Siren’s Yell an Terror (with members of At The Gates). De Infernali was also one of those projects but this time the music ventured into an entirely different dimension of brutality…

De Infernali was an extremely short-lived affair, lasting only two years in total. It started in 1996, when Nödtveidt begun experimenting with dark ambient sounds, writing music for no particular purpose. It wasn’t until his roommate Damien Midvinter was let into this project that De Infernali became a more serious creation (which it was never intended to be in the first place). Nödtveidt wrote the core of the material, while Midvinter contributed the songs “Ave Satan” and “Sign of the Dark”, and helped with some of the other compositions. Soon the duo had enough tracks for a full-length album. They decided to record it with the famous Swedish producer and musician Dan Swäno (known from working with Therion, Opeth, Katatonia, Marduk, Bloodbath and others) who also did the vocals on “Sign of the Dark”. The album was released by Nuclear Blast in 1997. The musical content of “Symphonia De Infernali” left a lot of listeners familiar with Nödtveidt’s previous works (especially Dissection) genuinely puzzled. The songs were completely deprived of any guitar sounds, focusing on dark ambience and haunting electronics. Some of the tracks were purely piano-driven (like the opening “Into The Labyrinths of Desolation”, as well as “Orcus Lursus” and “Revival/Paroxysmal Winds/Forever Gone”), other were more mechanical (“Atomic Age”, “Liberation”), taking a slightly more industrial direction. Although not really associated with metal music in general, the album showcased a unique black metal atmosphere. The lyrics were strongly connected to Nödtveidt’s beliefs, dealing with themes of Satanism, Anti-Christianity and death. De Infernali disbanded shortly after releasing their debut offering.

“Symphonia De Infernali” remains an obscure, yet fascinating release, revealing a side of Nödtveidt that not many of his fans knew before. This exclusive reissue brings back a true dark ambient gem in all its despicable glory. The new digipak edition of the album is limited to 2000 copies. Remastered using tube technology, digitally edited on a golden disc. Metal Mind Productions set the release date for 7th October in Europe and 7th December in USA (via MVD).

Jon N?dtveidt of Dissection

December 4th, 2004

  Jon N?dtveidt of Dissection
Interview, live – and off-stage pictures by Luxi Lahtinen 


There has been a lot of fuss around Dissection, the Swedish masters of Satanic black-ish Death Metal, especially with Jon N?dtveidt, the band?s founding member, frontman and true mastermind, getting a completely new Dissection line-up together. The band is ready to step forward from the shadows with a ?big bang?.

The band started their ?The Rebirth of Dissection? European tour from a completely sold out gig in Stockholm, Sweden on the 30th of October. When they finally arrived in Helsinki, Finland on the 4th of November for the very first time in the entire history of the band, I decided to use the opportunity to find out more facts from Jon N?dtveidt about the band?s ?2nd coming? and about the things that eventually brought the band back again.

The whole band was present backstage and the new Dissection members Set and Brice wanted to give their own input for the interview as well. Also, I guess it should be mentioned that Dissection?s new single titled MAHA KALI was released just a short while ago and it has been sharing opinions amongst the Dissection fans quite drastically indeed due to its a bit different approach musically compared to the band?s past releases.

The rebirth of Dissection is here… and now I let Jon, Brice and Set to talk more accurately about it and to clear up some rumors about the band as well.

Dear Metal dudes and dudettes… Dissection speaks out.
