Biography[edit]

Henrik Flyman is a Swedish guitarist, award winning composer and producer. Henrik is best known from his current, and longest lasting, band Evil Masquerade. He was the founding member of Swedish fantasy metal band Moahni Moahna where he was active between 1992-1997.[2] Shortly after he formed ZooL, which was basically Moahni Moahna with a modified line up and a more classic hard rock sound. ZooL had a brief career and did only release one album. Between 2002-2004 he played lead guitars for the Danish Celtic folk metal band Wuthering Heights[3] and in 2003 he founded Evil Masquerade in Copenhagen.[4] The music on their debut album Welcome to the Show had its roots in both classical music and heavy metal and they were soon labeled by media as being theatrical metal. In 2009 he teams up with the German Dark Wave and Gothic Rock band Lacrimosa on their Sehnsucht World Tour. Henrik is now a touring- and studio musician with the band. In 2009 he also won the Just Plain Folks Music Awards as composer in the category Best Metal Song with Evil Masquerade's "Bozo the Clown".[5] Henrik Flyman's latest releases are Black Moon Secret's debut album Another World that was released November 28, 2014,[6] Lacrimosa's studio album Hoffnung that was released December 12, 2015 [7] and Evil Masquerade's seventh studio album The Outcast Hall of Fame that was released May 19, 2016.[8]

This band included all members from Evil Masquerade (except for Dennis Buhl) as well as Richard Ofsoski, Mats Levén (Therion, Yngwie Malmsteen), Snowy Shaw (Therion, Mercyful Fate, Dream Evil), Tony Kakko (Sonata Arctica), Glen Drover (Megadeth, King Diamond) and Tony Mills (TNT, Shy) just to name a few.[11][12]
