Bassist Tobias Cristiansson of Swedish death metal veterans DISMEMBER has released the following statement to BLABBERMOUTH.NET:
"After 23 years, DISMEMBER have now decided to quit. We wish to thank all our fans for your support."
DISMEMBER played its first concert since 2008 as the headliners of Death Feast Open Air festival on June 23, 2011 in Hnxe, Germany. They were added to the event as the replacement for GORGUTS, which was forced to cancel all of its previously announced summer festival appearances.
Video footage of DISMEMBER's performance can be seen below.
Prior to the show, DISMEMBER stated, "This will be our only show in 2011, and our first since 2008 and we feel extremely excited to hit the stage once again for some serious headbanging. We will do a set that covers our whole career, from 'Like An Ever Flowing Stream' from 1991 up until the self-titled album released in 2008, so get ready for some serious Swedish death metal!!"
The latest, self-titled album from DISMEMBER was released in Europe in February 2008 via Regain Records. The CD was recorded at B.A.S. studios with producer Nico Elgstrand (MURDER SQUAD, KRUX, MERCILESS, ENTOMBED).
