DISSOCIATION / Bio

DISSOCIATION ARE A METAL BAND FROM THE NORTHWEST UK, THE BANDS FORMING MEMBER, LYRICIST, SONGWRITER AND GUITARIST (MIKEY) STARTED WRITING MATERIAL FOR THE BAND IN 2004, WITH THE MUSICAL AND LYRICAL INSPIRATION BEING DEATH, MUTILATION, SERIAL KILLERS AND DEAD BODIES. (BASICALLY THE HORROR GENRE)

DISSOCIATION’S MUSICAL STYLE IS MORE OLD SCHOOL AND EUROPEAN THAN THE EXTREME METAL STYLES OF TODAY. THEIR MUSIC IS MID PACED, HEAVILY DOWN TUNED, AND SLUDGY WITH AN ATMOSPHERIC ALMOST DOOMY FEEL. THE BAND DOES ALSO EMPLOY A HEAVY GROOVE BASED RHYTHM, WHICH ALLOWS THEM TO DELIVER MASSIVELY HEAVY AND CRUSHING RIFFS, WITH ENERGY, MEMORABLE HOOKS AND MAXIMUM IMPACT.

THE BAND PLAYED THEIR FIRST GIG AT SATAN’S HOLLOW IN MANCHESTER ON 20TH APRIL 2005, SUPPORTING CHESHIRE SYMPHONIC METALLERS ONSETCOLD. THE REMAINDER OF 2005 SAW DISSOCIATION PLAYING LIVE AT AS MANY VENUES AS THEY COULD FIND LOCALLY, EARNING THEMSELVES THE REPUTATION OF BEING A BRUTALLY HEAVY AND CRUSHING LIVE ACT, BEFORE GOING INTO THE STUDIO IN THE LATTER PART OF 2005 TO RECORD THEIR DEBUT CD ‘PIECES’.

2006 SAW DISSOCIATION LOSE THE BANDS BASS GUITARIST (WILL), AND SPEND MUCH OF THAT YEAR AUDITIONING FOR A REPLACEMENT. THE BAND DID MANAGE TO PLAY A FEW SHOWS THAT YEAR WITH (NAFFY) PLAYING BASS GUITAR AS WELL AS SINGING LEAD VOCALS. THE BAND ENTERED THE BATTLE FOR THE ROCK & BLUES FESTIVAL ONLY TO BE NARROWLY KNOCKED OUT OF THE SEMI FINAL HEATS. DISSOCIATION ALSO SUPPORTED THRASH GOD FATHERS AND METALLICA/MEGADETH FAVORITES DIAMOND HEAD.

2007 SAW DISSOCIATION LOSE THEIR DRUMMER (CARL), AND THEY FOUND THEMSELVES AGAIN AUDITIONING FOR A REPLACEMENT. NEARING THE END OF 2007 (MIKE) DECIDED TO GO INTO THE STUDIO AND RECORD THE BANDS NEXT CD ‘SLAUGHTERED’ AS A TWO PIECE. (MIKE) RECORDED ALL GUITARS AND PROGRAMMED THE ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT WHILE (NAFFY) RECORDED HIS VOCALS AND BASS GUITAR PARTS.

2007 ALSO SAW THE BAND GAIN A NEW DRUMMER (DAN). UNFORTUNATELY (DAN) MISSED OUT ON RECORDING THE ALBUM BUT WAS PRESENT FOR THE RECORDING OF THE BANDS DEBUT MUSIC VIDEO ‘MONSTER BEHIND THE MASK’

DISSOCIATION ENTERED THE NEW VIDEO INTO THE BATTLE FOR BLOODSTOCK COMPETITION, BUT DESPITE WINNING THEIR ‘EXTREME METAL’ CATEGORY WITH OVER 4,000 VIEWS OF THEIR VIDEO, THEY DID NOT GET TO PLAY THE SMALLER BLOODSTOCK STAGE AS PROMISED IN THE RULES. THIS PRIZE WAS GIVEN TO THE RUNNER UP WITH OUT REASON OR EXPLANATION BEING GIVEN TO THE BAND.

2008 SAW DISSOCIATION TAKE TO THE ROAD AS A THREE PIECE, THE BAND PLAYED VENUES FROM ONE END OF THE UK TO THE OTHER, WELL INTO 2009. HIGHLIGHTS FOR THE BAND INCLUDED BEING ASKED TO HEADLINE THEIR FIRST APPEARANCE AT THE MANCHESTER ACADEMY 3, AND SUCCESSFUL GIGS IN BIRMINGHAM, DUDLEY, LEICESTER AND CAMDEN TOWN IN LONDON, WHERE THE BAND SUPPORTED DE PROFUNDIS, NECROSADISTIC GOAT TORTURE AND ACRAL NECROSIS.
