Cemetary was a Swedish gothic metal band founded by Mathias Lodmalm in 1989. A few years later they signed a contract with Black Mark Productions and released their debut album An Evil Shade Of Grey in 1992. The band would record one more album before moving from death metal into a gothic metal style with Black Vanity (1994), Sundown (1996) and Last Confessions (1997). After a 7-year break, the band reunited in 2004 and released their final LP, Phantasma. In May 2005, Mathias Lodmalm posted a message at the band's website announcing that he was leaving the scene for good because of dissatisfaction with the people he did business with.

In 1997 and 1999, Lodmalm released albums similar in style under the moniker Sundown.
