Due to overwhelming demand, reactivated Swedish death metallers DISSECTION's much-anticipated comeback show in Stockholm has been moved from Klubben to Lilla Arenan, according to the band's booking agency, Skrikhult. The gig, which is scheduled to take place on October 30, will also include a performance by DEATHSTARS, the Swedish band featuring former DISSECTION drummer Ole Öhman and guitarist Emil Nödtveidt (brother of DISSECTION leader Jon).
As previously reported, DISSECTION are currently in the studio with a full lineup, working on their first studio recording since 1995's classic album "Storm Of The Light's Bane". The first single and video is scheduled for release in September 2004.
Nödtveidt was recently released from prison after spending seven years behind the bars for murdering an Algerian homosexual. A short-lived collaboration with former EMPEROR drummer Bård "Faust" Eithun ended in December over "the demands of DISSECTION's Satanic concept." A documentary DVD and a new studio album are expected sometime in 2005.
