Dismember recorded two demo tapes, "Dismembered" in 1988 and "Last Blasphemies" in 1989, after which the band split up as Estby joined Carnage and Blomqvist joined Entombed. After Carnage disbanded Estby, Blomqvist and Kärki reformed Dismember and recorded the "Reborn in Blasphemy" demo in 1991. After this Sennebäck came back and also bass player Richard Cabeza joined the band. They were then signed to Nuclear Blast and released the debut full-length"Like an Ever Flowing Stream" later in 1991. This was followed by "Indecent And Obscene" in 1993 and "Massive Killing Capacity" in 1995.
After the release of "Death Metal" (1997) Magnus Sahlgren replaced Sennebäck on guitar. Cabeza left the band before the recording of "Hate Campaign" (1999), which featured Sharlee D'Angelo on bass. Cabeza however came back in 2000, but left again after "Where Ironcrosses Grow" was released in 2004. For a while the band operated with one guitarist as Sahlgren left in 2003 and wasn't replaced until 2005 when Martin Persson joined. Founding member Fred Estby left the band in 2007 and was replaced by Thomas Daun. Band's final album "Dismember" was released in 2008.
On October 16th 2011 they announced that they had disbanded.
