Dismantled is the product of an experiment that began in late 2000 by Gary Zon, who was attempting to create something similar to Front Line Assembly's sound. After overwhelming positive feedback from online listeners, Gary began further sonic construction by drawing influences from television, movies, and music as well as adding vocals into the mix. The resulting sound was a unique blend of very melodic, yet complex mix of layered electro-industrial merged with trance elements. This dark, brooding, futuristic ensemble yielded more and more positive feedback, while comparing it to Front Line Assembly, Haujobb, Wumpscut and Velvet Acid Christ. Dismantled's first and only demo release came in March of 2001 through mp3.com. Demo Variation was sent to labels and radio stations; coinciding with the launch of . After four months of waiting, the demo caught the attention of Dependent Records, who released the track "Purity" on their Septic II compilation along side of such bands as Apoptygma Berzerk, Front Line Assembly, and VNV Nation among others. In late October 2001, Metropolis Records contacted Zon and expressed interest in working with Dismantled. In 2002, another Dismantled song, "Survivor," landed a place on the Dystopian Visions Resist the Command 2 compilation, and Dismantled won a re-mix contest for Wumpscut's "Wreath of Barbs." Gary also added two new supporting members to the live line-up; Shawn Kilmer on Keyboards and Matt Kurczodyna on bass. The self-titled debut of Dismantled was released June 4th on Metropolis Records for North America and Dependent Records for Europe. Several media publications named Dismantled the electronic newcomer of the year for 2002.
Originally appearing on the Dependence 2012 compilation, Dismantled now offers up the Whole Wide World EP. Featuring two versions of the title track, three versions of “Disease”, the new track “Deal” featuring vocals by Nero Bellum of Psyclon 9, and much more!
