Dissector is the name of power-thrash-death-metal band, which was famous and very active in North East of Russia between 1992 and 2002.

Concerts of the group, which had more than 100 own-created songs, had distinguished with powerful energy, friendly behavior and perfect reception in local metal-community, the repertory of the band was always being renewed and varied stylistically. In 2002, after having recorded a couple of solo DIY-albums, the only member of Dissector who was with it from the very beginning, the guitarist and vocalist Yan moves to St.Petersburg. There he joins firstly the death-metal group Inside, and later - black-metal band Tartharia with which he is playing and being recorded up to 2005.

Before that, in 2003, together with 2 ex-members of Inside, Yan had created a new goth n roll band The Lust (former Last Embrace) which released 3 albums with labels Fono Records (Russia) and Sleaszy Rider Records (Greece). Those albums released in Russia - Tangled (2004) and My Dear Emptiness (2005) were appraised as the best domestically produced metal-albums of the year. In autumn of 2005 Yan moves to Moscow where he keeps on writing new songs and support The Lust project.
