THE DARK 1996 DEBUT ALBUM OF ATMOSPHERIC BLACK METAL FROM KATATONIA MASTERMIND ANDERS BLACKHEIM NYSTRÖM PRESENTED ON SPECIAL BLOOD RED VINYL FOR THE FIRST TIME ON PEACEVILLE A work of considerable depth and power Metal Archives
From Katatonia mastermind Anders Blackheim Nyström, Peaceville presents the debut album from his symphonic extreme metal solo-project, Diabolical Masquerade, which launched onto the scene in 1996 with the release of Ravendusk in My Heart. Three further albums were subsequently released in a prolific period of creativity before the project was finally laid to rest after the release of 'Death's Design' in 2001.
'Ravendusk in my Heart' stands as a startling debut of fantastic imagery, shaped by accomplished atmospherics mixed with cold black metal, recalling the early works of Emperor, all brought to life with deeply imaginative tales of fantasy from Blackheims realm. The album was recorded at the famous Unisound Studio in September 1995. It was produced by Dan Swanö & Blackheim and mixed by Swanö (familiar for his work with Opeth, Dissection, Marduk).
This LP edition of 'Ravendusk in my Heart' is presented on special 180gram blood red vinyl in single sleeve packaging complete with a printed inner bag featuring lyrics.
