The Top Ten

1 Where Dead Angels Lie

Underrated. - Caleb9000

2 The Somberlain
3 Unhallowed
4 Night's Blood

So haunting and fast paced. This band was a God-Gift.


I usually listen to this song, merging "At the Fathomless Depths", the sinister intro with it, and it sounds amazing as the build up really sets the tone for the devastating storm that follows engulfing the listener and taking them to a round of an unholy journey to hell. The entire album indeed was very inspirational for the plethora of emerging extreme metal bands back in the 90s..The band did an exceptional job inventing their own unique sound and released two golden masterpieces on the trot, that has aged very well..i'm not all dissapointed, that they called it quits at such an early phase of their career, instead it gives such an immense value to their records in my opinion. - Arhaan95

5 Black Horizons

Brilliant musically not to mention the voices at the beginning say a line backwards which was later used in where dead angels lie, this song is pure genius made by the mastermind Jon Nodveidt! Hail Chaos! Reign in chaos Jon!

Dissection is my favorite band, and this is by far their best song, should be numer 1...
