NYC-based extreme metal unit DIMENTIANON, after a slight break from public appearance, have recently revamped the band’s lineup and are again booking live appearances for the coming months.
The turbulent, trademark DIMENTIANON style of combining death, black and doom metal elements with eerie atmospherics has been a part of the New York underground scene since the mid ’90s (then known as The Forgotten), but really sank its teeth into the public’s ears in 2010, with the release of the band’s third full-length Collapse The Void. The short but potent release shows the band at their most creative and destructive peak yet, inciting incredible reactions from the underground metal media, and shows the band tackling new approaches to their own “dementia” within the supposed realms of extreme metal.
“This is one of the sharpest underground metal albums released so far this year, a task that is an accomplishment in itself considering the enormous size of the scene. 4/5” – Metal Underground
“… just the right splatterings of melody, atmosphere and groove. There isn’t a track on the release that doesn’t mesh with the rest as each passage is well thought out and fine-tuned. 8/10” – Blistering
“Being unpredictable in a black/death unit is a little rare these days and sure there are bands out there within the genre that can lay claims to being unique but few sound as cohesive as Dimentianon do on Collapse The Void…. this is a must have situation… 9.5/10” – Wormwood Chronicles
“The surprising contrast between the (already strong) early material and this new, melodic/prog black metal sound shows an impressive amount of growth and ambition.” – Teeth of the Divine
“Collapse the Void is all over the map from start to finish mixing elements of black, death and doom metal with ease, creating a nice chaotic extreme metal mix.” – Popdose
