Dismember is a Swedish death metal band, formed in Stockholm in 1988 (see 1988 in music. After a hiatus, the band began recording in earnest in 1991 and released their debut, Ever Flowing Stream[?] in 1991 (see 1991 in music). The album became an early example of Scandinavian death metal and established the band's fanbase, which grew with the release of Pieces[?] (1992, see 1992 in music). The song "Skin Her Alive" prompted an obscenity charge in the United Kingdom, against which the band successfully defended themselves.

While many of the other Scandinavian death metal bands began softening their sound in the mid-1990s, Dismember's Indecent and Obscene[?] was as close as they ever came to the mainstream, and they soon returned to their hardcore roots. Their latest is Hate Campaign[?] (2000, 2000 in music).
