Diabolical Masquerade - Ravendusk In My Heart LP (Red Translucent vinyl)



The cult 1996 debut of symphonic black metal from Katatonia’s Anders ‘Blackheim’ Nyström.

This debut album was the start of a long and successful career for Blackheim with Diabolical Masquerade. It certainly stirred great excitement within me for what was to come on subsequent albums. I’ve always enjoyed one-man projects greatly, as it’s always interesting to see the uniform influence of one person with singular ideas for each instrument. There is never conflict of composition, and often the musical result is organic and tight. Blackheim is no different, showing immense talent on “Ravendusk…” and proving his worth as a black metal composer, with some help from Dan Swano.
