More Throwback: Dissection Midsummer Massacre

11 Jul


Recently a fan commissioned prints of my Dissection Midsummer Massacre photos. I used the opportunity and re-edited all of the official photos, as well some photos that have not been shared yet. Among them is this red photo of Jon. Due to the motion of the camera the candles on the stage altar are forming eleven numbers seven. I thought this was a nice detail, hence this date of 11/7.

Another photo I had not shared before is one of Jon and Erik Danielsson, rocking beside each other. It surely was a strange twist of fate that Erik would jump in for this very last concert in the history of Dissection. Yet on stage he fit in as any long-time member of a band would. I remember Jon commenting, how Erik was an artistic person and switching instruments would come just natural to him. He learnt the songs really quick. Erik put his heart and soul into the performance – as he always does.

      Hi, unfortunately not. I do know that it was recorded, but I don’t know what happened to the material.

    It’s really good to see pictures of Erik and Jon performing together, thank you for posting!
    By the way, I’ve posted a thorough analysis of the lyrics of the album Reinkaos a few months ago. Google “Dissecting Dissection’s Reinkaos” if you’re interested, I’d love to hear your opinion!

      Thanks, a nice research. It’s good to see the album continues to have relevance. It took some doing.
