I'm sure many of you are we'll informed of this black metal and story of the songwriter/ singer/ guitarist Jon. Incarcerated at a young age for accessory to murder ... Did his time ... Came out and released a great album in a more standard metal style! Badass! So shortly after the release of Reinkaos... The guy offs himself with a gun surrounded by some lit candles and his satanic grimoires!
Anyway truth is I generally stick to the Jesus side of the satin black metal thing but this track black dragon... Blows my mind ... I love it... Hits me as heavy as snot ... Badass and you can hear every word he sings.
For whatever reason I've been very intrigued by this individual, if you look back In dissections history you'll find two albums of pretty crazy black metal thrash genius! However the return to a trad metal really is what gets me. The lyrics... The interviews I've seen. Shit this guy was so into the new no holds barred satanism that he took his own life via there credo.... A man when he has accomplished great things should decide to go out on his own choice... Being taken by cancer, old age etc is for the weak sheep followers of the cosmic order ... That would be the rest of us.... Well it has kept me on wiki and YouTube for a week researching this guy's shtick ....
Jon was sadly one of the crazier ones from that whole scene. He wasn't always so gung-ho about his beliefs, but fell in with the "wrong" crowd as a teenager and things sort of fell apart. Dude was really talented, so it was sad to lose him from the creative world.
Regardless of his personality, Dissection retains the position of having released my all-time favourite record in Storm of the Light's Bane.
