The original lineup of Swedish death metal legends Dismember is back! The band have announced that they will perform at Scandinavia Deathfest 2019, taking place October 11th - 12th at the Kraken Sthlm and Slaktkyrkan venues in Stockholm, Sweden.
Scandinavia Deathfest organizers state: "It brings us great pleasure to announce that the reunited original-LAEFS-lineup of Dismember are making an exclusive European appearance at Scandinavia Deathfest 2019! This will mark the first performance by the band since 2008, so what better place for this to occur than in their hometown of Stockholm? We are extremely honoured that the band accepted our invitation to perform at the first-ever Scandinavia Deathfest and we look forward to seeing many of you in Stockholm for this historic event in October 2019!"

Says the band: "We are very excited to mark the return of the band with an exclusive show at the Scandinavia Deathfest 2019 in Stockholm, Sweden. Be sure to attend this special event that will be both a Dismemberance and the future on death metal to come!"
Dismember announced the band's retirement in late 2011. Dismember's illustrious career in the death metal underground began with 1991's Like An Ever Flowing Stream and ended with 2008's brilliant self-titled release. Dismember released a two-disc DVD titled Under Bloodred Skies in late July 2009. The live concerts were filmed in the Netherlands and at the 2008 Party San Open Air Festival in Bad Berka, Germany. The DVD also included a documentary and interviews with band members.
