Dissect - Swallow Swouming Mass

Label : Xtreem Music | Archive under death metal / grindcore

Release type: Re-release

Pim B. : Twenty years after the initial release of 'Swallow Swouming Mass' on Cyber Music the album has been re-released through Spain's Xtreem Music. It's not just a re-release as this turned out as a double CD on which you will find all demos next to the original nine songs of the album. So on the first disc you'll find the 1991 live demo. The second disc contains the 'Presage To Eternity' demo from 1992 and the 1991 debut demo as well as 'Fragments' from 1997. Style wise the latter sticks out as Dissect had turned into a more technical death metal band. In general it's not a bad recording but it's too far removed from the older material that impressed in the early 90s. At that time the band played a form of heavy, down tuned death metal that resembles bands like Grave and Rottrevore and to some extent Gorefest too. Now all of this is compiled on this double CD. The vinyl edition will be two separate LP's by the way. Personally I love this type of death metal and this way you get everything the band ever did. The band has reformed with a new line-up by the way.
