Diabolical Masquerade is the avant-garde black metal solo project of Anders Nyström (aka Blackheim), 
guitarist for Katatonia and Bloodbath, origins from Stockholm, Sweden. Nyström wanted to have a band 
where he could compose more extreme music while Katatonia were exploring more mellow themes and moods.
All of the music on the first two albums were written and performed by Nyström

with guest vocal appearances from longtime collaborator Dan Swanö
Swanö later became an integral part of the project, as co-writer and co-arranger, performer, engineer, 
mixer and producer on the ‘Nightwork’ and especially ‘Death’s Design’ albums.
Diabolical Masquerade has released four full length albums: Ravendusk In My Heart (1996), 

The Phantom Lodge (1997), Nightwork (1998) and Death’s Design (2001).
Since long journey from 1993, Diabolical Masquerade was laid to rest in September of 2004. 

But recently Anders Nyström stated that he is working on a new Diabolical Masquerade album 
and he is also looking for more members for live performances.
