Dimension Zero is a Gothenburg, Sweden-based melodic death metal band formed in 1995 as a side project of In Flames former guitarists Jesper Strömblad and Glenn Ljungström. Former Marduk drummer and vocalist Jocke Gothberg would join later on vocals, as well as Hans Nilsson (ex-Liers in Wait, Diabolique, Crystal Age) behind the drumkit.
The band released "Penetrations from the Lost World" in 1997 before splitting up the following year due to internal problems. They reformed in 2000, and later recorded "Silent Night Fever" and "This Is Hell". Tours have been rare due to members' other musical commitments.
Musically, they have been described as strictly old-school Swedish death metal in the range of At the Gates, Unleashed, and Defleshed. Due to Dimension Zero's inception by In Flames lead guitarist, Jesper Strömblad, their albums have also drawn critical comparisons with some of In Flames' earlier work. Their latest album, He Who Shall Not Bleed, was released in 2007.
In May 2014, it was announced that the band would reunite for the Gothenburg Sound Festival, which is set to take place in January 2015.
