GRAVE DESECRATOR are revealing the second brutal track taken from their forthcoming album 'Dust to Lust', which will hit stores on June 17th.
The song "A Witching Whore" is now exclusively streaming via Rock Hard Italy (for Italy)
Guitarist and vocalist Butcherazor comments on behalf of the band: "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."
The artwork of 'Dust to Lust' has been created by renowned Polish artist Zbigniew M. Bielak (MAYHEM, WATAIN, GHOST, ZHRINE).

GRAVE DESECRATOR dole out brutal music for the raw and the hooked. Their forthcoming third album 'Dust To Lust' keeps essentially true to the spirit of metal made in Brazil. There is boiling anger born in the face of violence, rampant political corruption, religious decadence, and a daily struggle to stay alive. Turning to straight evil their answer comes with exalting sarcasm, striving towards lustful nights and rising into their obscure and sinister convictions.
Following the extreme path of their Brazilian predecessors, GRAVE DESECRATOR are true torch bearers of the underground and firmly place themselves among the ranks of entities such as SARCÓFAGO, early SEPULTURA, and even early SLAYER.
Founded in 1998 in Rio de Janeiro, GRAVE DESECRATOR have already firmly established a reputation as one of the most savage and brutal South American metal bands through the release of the two full-length albums 'Sign of Doom' (2008) and 'Insult' (2010) as well as several well-received split collaborations and EPs.
Now GRAVE DESECRATOR are ready to defend their metal heritage once again with 'Dust To Lust'. Raise your fists and bang those heads!
