DISSOLUTION is a thrash metal band hailing from Christchurch, NZ, gaining a reputation for their intense live performances and their hardworking attitude.
They have just released their debut full-length album, Plague of Violence and will embark on small national tours during 2010 to promote the album and raise their national profile. Plague of Violence was recorded at Nightshift studios in Christchurch, and the entire production, including mixing, mastering and CD package design, was completed by band members Jake Skinner and Brett McKersey.
DISSOLUTION formed in March 06 and they have played regularly in Christchurch, including supports for the likes of Austalia’s Lord, and Frankenbok, as well as NZ acts such as Subtract, Malevolence and Tainted. They have also played a handful of shows in Auckland and Whangarei, including a slot at 2009’s Audience With The Devil. Their songs reflect a love of classic 80's thrash, and are inspired by bands like Kreator, Destruction, Exodus and Death. The dynamic twin-guitar interplay between the two guitarists gives their songs memorable hooks, while melodic interludes provide a refreshing balance to the ferocity of the riffs.
