|Diabolical Masquerade The Phantom Lodge Limited Heavyweight 180gram Vinyl LP
The second album of epic, symphonic black metal from Katatonia's Anders 'Blackheim' Nyström. This edition of 'The Phantom Lodge' is presented on 180gm heavyweight black vinyl with upgraded sleeve content & is released on vinyl for the very first time.
Diabolical Masquerade was the solo-project created by Katatonia mastermind Anders 'Blackheim' Nyström in 1996, to let off more creative steam away from the gothic/doom metal styling of his main band, Katatonia.
Diabolical Masquerade was based primarily around symphonic/melodic black metal. Strong atmospheres were created through layered guitar and keyboards (and notably, flute, on this album), and Blackheim's compositions contained more up tempo and extreme elements than those of Katatonia, with cold, dark riffs with a firm emphasis on mood, given life with strong fantasy-based lyrics.
