Dismember  


Dismember was one of the fathers of Swedish death metal, arriving on the scene at end of the eighties, along with compatriots such as Edge Of Sanity, At The Gates, and Entombed. But while the other aforementioned bands are gone (or, in the latter case, no longer in the death metal field), Dismember continued to proudly wave the banner of prime Swedish death metal for years and years. Their albums were uniformly well executed and mostly of a similar heads-down intense style, with the minor exception of Massive Killing Capacity, where they took a slight death-rock approach, somewhat similar to what Entombed was doing at the time. In general, early/mid Entombed is the band that Dismember most closely resembled, though neither is a clone of the other. After 23 years and 10 albums, they finally announced their breakup in October 2011.
