Dissection frontman Jon Nödtveidt has committed suicide. Nödtveidt's death was confirmed by the Swedish distributor Sound Pollution, whose staff has worked with Dissection throughout the band's career. A posting on the Sound Pollution web site, www.soundpollution.se, reads: "RIP Jon Nödtveidt 1975-2006. Condolences from Sound Pollution & Black Lodge."

Nödtveidt formed Dissection in 1989 and released two full-length albums with the group "The Somberlain" (1993) and "Storm of the Light's Bane" (1995) before he was convicted in Sweden of felony murder of 37-year-old homosexual Algerian Josef Ben Maddour in 1997. He was released from prison in 2004, at which point he restarted Dissection.

Dissection announced in May that it would split up imediately following its final performances in support of its recently released CD, "Reinkaos". The band was subsequently forced to cancel its two previously announced appearances in North America (Sept. 1 at the House of Blues in West Hollywood, CA and Sept. 6 at B.B. King Blues Club in New York City) after Nödtveidt was denied legal entry into the United States as a result of his conviction.

I agree with Beastofmetal here. Suicide is never epic, imo, no matter what the context.
Tbh I have always regarded suicide as the easy way out.

Well if you take into account kamikaze missions and banzai charges and the like, or religious suicide, or ritual suicide, there can be a certain amount of beauty or even practicality to it.

R.I.P Dissection is so good and epic, but committing suicide isn't!

Suicide can be pretty epic. It just depends on the context.

Maybe there was more to him than meets the eye - maybe the guilt of killing another man consumed him and he couldn't live another day with that burden. I'm not saying it makes his decision any less of an easy way out, and it certainly doesn't make it worthy of a story, but it's not like one day he was just like "meh, life's gay" and opted out.

I still he has something wrong with him. P.S. My previous post wasn't complete, I finished it now.
