Swedish deathmetal band, well known in the underground metal scene. After breaking up in 2011, the band returned after 8 years with a distinctive chainsaw-like guitar sound.

The band was formed in 1988 in Stockholm by bassist and vocalist Robert Sennebäck, guitarist David Blomqvist and drummer Fred Estby. In 1989, Dismember’s activities were suspended in October. At that time, David Blomqvist and Fred Estby joined Mike Amott and his formation Carnage. In April 1990, after the breakup of Carnage, the musicians from that group i.e. D. Blomqvist, F. Estby and Matti Kärki resurrected Dismember. In 1991, the group’s first studio album entitled “Like an Ever Flowing Stream” was released. In addition to Blomqvist (guitar), F. Estby (drums) and M. Kärki (vocals), the recording of the album additionally involved (as new band members): Robert Sennebäck from the group Unleashed – (rhythm guitar) and also Robert Cabeza (bass guitar), who also played in Carbonized. In 1998, bassist Richard Cabeza left the band and joined the Norwegian group Satyricon. In early 2001, the band signed a record deal with Hammerheart Records, a music label. In 2003, the band toured Europe with Flesh Made Sin and Callenish Circle. In 2004, a sixth album titled Where Ironcrosses Grow was released on Karmageddon Media, which was formerly called Hammerheart. The album was produced by drummer Fred Estby. In 2011, the band suspended its activities. After eight years, however, it returned. In a May 2021 interview with MetalBite.com, drummer Fred Estby stated that Dismember may consider releasing its first studio album in more than a decade in 2022 or 2023.
