Biography

Evil Masquerade was founded 2003 in Copenhagen by Swedish guitarist Henrik Flyman (Lacrimosa, ex-Wuthering Heights, ex-Moahni Moahna, ex-ZooL). Together with drummer Dennis Buhl (ex-Hatesphere), bass player Kasper Gram and vocalist Henrik Brockmann (ex-Royal Hunt) they set off to record the band’s debut album that was released early 2004 under the name Welcome to the Show. It almost immediately received worldwide recognition and made the charts in Japan at # 8. One year later it was followed up with their second album Theatrical Madness.

A couple of line up changes took place and new singer Apollo Papathanasio (Spiritual Beggars, ex-Firewind, ex-Time Requiem) and bass player Thor Jeppesen entered the studio with Flyman and Buhl to record the album Third Act. This album took the band to a new level of fame when it was re-released in 2007 in the USA, one year after the original release in Europe and Asia. The fourth studio album Fade To Black saw yet another change in the line-up with only Henrik Flyman and Apollo Papathanasio remaining from the previous album. New members were drummer Daniel Flores (The Murder of My Sweet, Mind’s Eye, Tears of Anger, ZooL) and bass player Johan Niemann (Therion, Evergrey, Hubi Meisel, Demonoid, Mind’s Eye).

Flyman spent 2010 composing songs for the band’s fifth album Pentagram that was released in May 2012. The recordings took place during 2011 and saw Flyman once again team up with the same members as on the band’s third release: Papathanasio, Buhl and Jeppesen; together with the latest addition to the line-up, the band’s first permanent keyboard player, Artur Meinild.

    I heard the song, 'Pentagram' and it reminds me of Lordis' - 'Biomechanic Man'. I don't know if it's just me but there are similarities in both the songs? Haha. But, other then that, a good band.

    Don't Like it! Seemed contrived and there was no meaning to any of the lyrics. Sorry but not for me.

    FADE TO BLACK is the best album from 2009. It is absolutely awesome and one of my all-time favourites together with THERION's GOTHIC KABBALAH. I look forward to much more music from EVIL MASQUERADE!!!!!!!!

    I like the 70's hard rock feeling on Fade To Black, otherwise the album wasn't that great, the debut still is my favorite EM album^^
