The Diabolic Serenades is the first studio album for Ancient Rites from Belgium (pardon... Flanders) that basically sums up all the underground period of the band, the more occult and black (to be considered as NOT the Scandinavian style). This album was released in 1994 although it contains songs from the Evil Prevails EP (1992).
