"Desolation Heartbreak" is the ninth song from KnightressM1's debut album Dreams & Devastation and the lone love ballad. The album is composed and led by Emily Palen on violin, vocals and organ. This album is unique in the rock and metal world as it is composed centrally around Emily's violin playing as the lead instrument. Dreams & Devastation was recorded at the Foo Fighter home studio, Studio 606 with chief engineer John Lousteau. Rob Ahlers played drums and Uriah Duffy played bass. KnightressM1 created this album as a complete sonic story of a our ability as humans to tranmute deep suffering into transformational power and beauty.
