Masquerade is a Swedish rock band established in the Autumn of 1988.


During their first two years the band concentrated on writing music, rehearsing, and performing live. In 1990 Masquerade recorded a promotional cassette and a single that was favorably reviewed in the English magazine Metal Hammer.[citation needed] After signing on with Empire Records, in early 1991 the band started recording their self-titled album MASQUERADE.[citation needed] The record company brought the engineer Ronny Lahti (Saigon Kick, Europe, Talisman, Electric Boys , Clockwise) into the project for finalizing the mixing. The album was released in 1992 to positive reviews by critics, who found the album comparable to the music of bands like Whitesnake and Def Leppard.[citation needed]

After their first album tour, the band developed new material, and began recording their new album Surface of Pain, again together with Ronny Lahti as the sound and mixing engineer. Released in 1995, the album was characterized by a heavier approach than the debut album, and gained the band exposure to an American audience.

The band then worked together on the third album Flux with Fredrik Nordström, who had achieved success with the band HammerFall.
