The Swedish act Ophthalamia was formed in 1989 by Tony "IT" Sarkka, mainly known for his dark band Abruptum, and his heavy presence in the Scandinavian black metal scene in the late 80's and early 90's. Opthalamia was a land of pure fantasy created by IT and the songs are connected to stories based around this fantasy-world. Though the band could be classified as black/doom metal, there is much more to Opthalamia, with varied metal influences, tempo changes and melodic passages becoming progressively more prominent, helping to distinguish them from their peers. Their 1994 debut album A Journey In Darkness with vocalist Shadow (Jon Nödtveidt of classic death/black metal band, Dissection) was produced by the legendary Dan Swano (Opeth, Katatonia) and recorded at Unisound in 1993. This new vinyl edition includes original artwork, plus new notes from Metalion and Swano, offering their recollections of IT, who passed away in early 2017.
