Diabolical Masquerade Nightwork Katatonia CD
Diabolical Masquerade was the solo-project created by Katatonia's Anders 'Blakkheim' Nyström in 1996, to let off more creative steam away from the gothic/doom metal styling of Katatonia. 
 
Nightwork, DM's third album, was recorded at The Sanctuary in April 1998 and produced by Dan Swan (Opeth, Katatonia) with Blakkheim.
 
Although a solo-project, Blakkheim enlisted the help of Dan Swan to perform the drums, as well as contributing with some keyboards and backing vocals.
 
Diabolical Masquerade was based primarily around symphonic/melodic black metal; creating eerie atmospheres through keyboards and utilizing more high energy & technical compositions than those of his main band, with complex patterns of riffs and hooks. This particular album saw a greater integration of synths than previously, to convey a strong horror theme. To further expand this atmosphere, cello and flute were also incorporated.
