1993. The Somberlain
is the debut album by Dissection, the album highly influential release for both black metal and melodic death metal. The band dedicated the album to Euronymous, who was murdered the same year.
"The Somberlain" is cold and mournful, while also having its faster moments. The title track is another Dissection classic, and is just as epic as the first. This is music that is best suited for the night. To be even more specific, it belongs to the cold nights of Winter.
This is the only album that features the band’s original lineup. The cover art was done by Kristian Wahlin.
