Below is our complete Grave Desecrator news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Cult death/black metal horde Grave Desecrator is streaming another new track taken from vicious forthcoming full length, "Dust to Lust." The track, titled "A Witching Whore" is streaming below.
"Dust to Lust" features artwork from Zbigniew Bielak (Watain, Beh emoth and more) and will be released by Season of Mist worldwide on July 1st.
Regarding the new track, guitarist and vocalist Butcherazor comments: "The track 'A Witching Whore' is based on a narrative about a mystical and unknown character from Rio de Janeiro in the XVIII Century, known as 'Bárbara dos Prazeres' ('Barbara of the Delights'). She was probably an even more gruesome and bloody Brazilian version of the infamous Elizabeth Bathory. We are the first band to evoke Bárbara's memory in music. She was a famous prostitute in Rio at the time, yet over the years she grew depraved.
"In witchcraft and black magic she found a possible solution to bring her once splendorous beauty back: virgin blood! Barbara was responsible for bloodbaths sacrificing hundreds of newborn children. We are musically expressing all the torments this woman carried out on her victims with harsh riffs dragged from a devastating foundation, an outstanding guitar solo, as well as highlights reflecting the apex of pain. Even most people living in Rio have not heard about this horrendous story.
"This veiled secrecy and dark contrast with open and 'sunny' Rio that most of you might associate with this city give the essential grey touch to this song. Embark onto this journey, where death is certain, but can come painfully slow." More...
Cult death/black metal horde Grave Desecrator just revealed new details surrounding the release of forthcoming album, "Dust to Lust."
"Dust to Lust" features artwork from acclaimed artist Zbigniew Bielak and will be released by Season of Mist worldwide on either June 3rd, June 17th, or July 1st, depending on whether we believe the video or the label's press release, which do not agree with one another.
Pre-orders are up now at this location and a new track titled "Temple Of Abominations" can be heard below.
Regarding the new track, guitarist "El" Necrogoat comments: ""Temple of Abominations" is a typical Grave Desecrator expression. Straight through the breast of religions and misconception of 'god,' salvation, peace, and all the elements which provide the breeding of a corrupted and twisted conviction. Of course that´s nothing new to the universe of Black or Death Metal, but we, Brazilians, have been witnessing a period of intense evangelical wide-spreading throughout our country! So, that´s absolutely a fistful of rejection towards it, but this time also much more personal as we have been facing it right in front of our eyes!"
He continues, “There´s an intrinsic aura in 'Dust to Lust!' It could bind the listener to our specific essence and components of our, sometimes, crude and cruel environment. There are no laws or truths! Lies, lust, drugs, satanism, darkness, vice, spirits, vanity, night, death, love, hate are the aliments regurgitated by this womb of chaos and perdition…And for us, it´s not a fancy allegory, but a bitter reality!"

Bassist Necrogoat comments, "We're really ravished to be signed with Pulverised Records, a label that really fits to our music in terms of ideological aspects and works professionally. We are sure this partnership will result in a tormenting sonic deliverance that will lead you all to a thunderous and malignant holocaust! The new album shall come in 2012, and we promise it will not disappoint! It will contain lots of good surprises on it, but with the same infamous essence we have become known for! We are really eager for this release! We are the BRAZILIAN BLACKEST METAL MASSACRE!"
Added Pulverised Records' A&R Manager Calvin Chiang: "Anyone with a knowledge of traditional Brazilian death metal will know most distinguishing quality: its rabid, unstoppable force of christ-bashing sonic blasphemy. Grave Desecrator is of course no exception and we believe the follow-up to (2012) Insult will definitely exceed our expectations. Grave Desecrator shall carry the burning flag of old school Brazilian death metal up high and be prepared for one of the most lethal death metal albums in 2012!"
