Dissection - Surviving Members Comment On Jon Nödtveidt's Death


As Blabbermouth.net exclusively reported earlier today, the surviving members of Dissection have now officially confirmed the death of the band's mainman, Jon Nödtveidt. The group's statement on the matter reads as follows:

"As rumours have started to spread we feel obliged to confirm Jon Nödtveidt's death.

Jon Nödtveidt was a man who lived his life according to his convictions and True Will. A couple of days ago he chose to end his life by his own hands. As a true Satanist he led his life in the way he wanted and ended it when he felt that he had fulfilled his self-created destiny. Not everyone will have understanding or acceptance for his personal path in this life and beyond, but all must respect his choice.

Those of us who have met him in his last days can assure that he was more focussed, happier and stronger than ever. It is our full conviction that he left this world of lies with a scornful laughter, knowing that he had fulfilled everything that he had set up for himself to accomplish. The empty space that he leaves behind will be filled with the dark essence that he manifested through his life and black-magical work. His legacy and Luciferian Fire will live on through those few who truly knew him and appreciated his work for what it really was and still is. As our brother's goal in life and death never was to 'Rest in Peace', we will instead wish him victories in all battles to come, until the Acosmic Destiny has been fulfilled.

For the glory of the Dark Gods and the Wrathful Chaos! 218"

I was going to post this in the other Dissection news article.

At least we have a bit more of an insight into why he did it.

The Philosopher
I being one to worship gods of light,
(And no, I'm not a christian, but that doesn't mean that my gods can't be positive)
I dissagree with the Idea of supporting negative entities and the works of dark magick, But I do understand the Idea of living life on your own terms and ending it on your own terms, and much like an old samarai that must retire, he commited what he saw as an honerable death, I can have a level of respect for this, but I think had we met our auras may have clashed.

I find it admirable, how he followed his own path to the very end. Many are too lost to be able to do something like that. Respect!

If they are not murdered then they kill themselves. We are losing a lot of great musicians lately. This is sad. I hope someone got the chance of taking pictures of him for the front cover of an EP or something.

Respect for suicides is something of an oxymoron. Suicide is an act of cowardice, nothing more. A premanent solution to a temporary problem. All that bullshit pseudo mystic ideology that is attached to Jon's stupid act is cheesy and plain ridiculous.

R.I.P. though.

well I really doubt we'll ever know the real reason behind why he did it. It's the same way with most other suicides...

R.I.P. Jon

Well that can be discussed... I don't think he "escaped" at all. Suicide can be so much more than just an escape from problems.

Hm, I'd like to, but it would turn into a long discussion which in the end would simply boil down to individual opinion, I believe...

yeah, i wonder that too, but i bet it's something about the anticosmic, chaos stuff (more of that can be found on band's homepage)... and it also used in a sontitle for the latest album - Nexion 218

Number 218 is a blend of the energies and influences of the numbers 2, 1 and 8. Number 2 brings service to others, balance, faith and trust, harmony and love. Number 1 resonates with intuition and insights, positivity, motivation and inspiration. Number 8 carries the vibrations of wisdom, manifesting wealth and abundance, giving and receiving and Karma - the Spiritual Law of Cause and Effect.

Angel Number 218 is a message from your angels to have faith and trust in your intuition and inner-knowing, and believe that the angels and the Universe are ensuring that your monetary and financial needs will be met. Give any money worries and/or fears to your angels for healing and transmutation, and know that all will be taken care of.

The repeating Angel Number 218 is a message to expect an influx of funds, a win, a promotion or pay rise. Use the extra money wisely.

Angel Number 218 is a message to be open to the flow of giving and receiving and be grateful for the gifts and blessings of the Universe.
