Satanic, militant, and darkly devoted. Dissection's music plays like a faustian tragedy across the inner eye. This evocative endowment coupled with the morbid acts of Jon Nödtveidt, helped elevate the band to vertiginous levels of myth. However, this kind of acclamation arrives with a price, and many a naysayer have attempted to libel their sinister glory. None have prevailed though, something I can only attribute to the seductive nature of its ghastly fantasy. Dissection's musical legacy, and the story surrounding it, including secret chambers decorated with human remains, and the highest sacrifice of them all, is simply too vigorous to be rejected.

I expect the majority to gravitate towards either of the full-length albums, but I personally regard Live Legacy as Dissection's great work. It was recorded a mere two weeks after Jon's murder, transforming the songs into an ominous gestalt of his wicked deed. Live Legacy was Jon's artistic point of no return. The dragon had spread it's wings, and his own fate had been sealed in blood. Just as it was prophesied in the lyrics of The Somberlain.

No it doesn't. None of those threads offer a complete poll, nor any serious attempt to discuss the music.

Live Legacy is absolutely furious! Mandatory in the Dissection catalogue.

It's almost impossible for me to pick between the first two full lengths, but I picked The Somberlain because of the acoustic interludes. I worship the whole catalogue.

Reinkaos grew on me once I gave up expectations of a 3rd Dissection album and accepted it as a totally new project bearing the old namesake. It's still far behind Somberlain and SotLB, but it's decent enough. I voted for SotLB for obvious reasons (it's the best).

Two classic albums and a great live recording. Definitely my favorite band when I was younger.

Voted Storm.

But i do think that middle part in Black Horizons with the clean vocals is one of the best things in metal, ever.

This onwards -> https://youtu.be/Nxfn2lwLzXI?t=241
