In 2019, DISMEMBER‘s 1991 lineup reunited for a few handpicked festivals around the world. Subsequently, they have inked a deal with Nuclear Blast and made all their past material available on streaming services; additionally, physical reissues of those same albums are expected to arrive soon!

In a conversation with Bandcamp, drummer Fred Estby unveiled that DISMEMBER is considering making their first new album since 2008’s self-titled!

“We’re talking about making new music,” he said. “The question is when. As of right now, because of the pandemic and all that, this year was only honoring all the shows that were booked in 2019 and 2020.

“So, we got those done, and of course, the way metal festivals, especially in Europe, work now is as soon as they’re done, they’re already selling tickets for next year’s edition. So we have a couple coming up, which is gonna be really fun. But we’re also thinking about recording more.”

It’s worth noting that DISMEMBER‘s 2008 self-titled album was the only one without drummer Fred Estby. Despite this, he declared in an interview to still be a fan of it.

“I love the album I’m not on,” he said. “Thomas [Daun], who played drums, [is an] excellent drummer. I’ve recorded him for other bands. Dismember is a great album with great production, too. It’s f**king brutal, and I love it. It has all the essence of DISMEMBER. It’s death metal, but with a really good sense of melody.”
