" Dismember’s catalogue, apart from the indisputably classic “Like an Everflowing Stream”, is completely disregarded, and in some cases almost entirely unknown.I think it has been a great injustice to call them Entombed Clones as well..."

" In my book...MKC is a close second to the glorious debut...Pulling out a more rocking album here. Essentially, Dismember take rock’s sense of groove and apply it to the crushing sound they perfected on “Like an Everflowing Stream”. Use of melodic lead guitar is far more abundant here than it was on the previous two records..And while the classic guitar sound of sunlight studios is not quite there...Its still pretty god damn heavy ! "

" While Dismember may have slowed down a bit, Massive Killing Capacity is still very much a death metal album...Matti Karki's strep-throat vocals and blender-pureed guitars keep the record sounding authentic. This is the Re-Mastered version with 4 bonus tracks...The first, “Justifiable Homicide,” is a b-side, yet is remarkably strong. The remaining tracks are of varying sound quality ranging from bad to worse. And no vocals on the final three...But Whatever...."

Overall, Massive Killing Capacity is an important album in that it represents the direction of Swedish death metal in the mid '90s. Now 14 years old(Damn..That much?) it still shows that Dismember were and still are one of the greatest Swedish Bands Ever !

Self Dissection !........Do It!
Over There....
