2. Dark Recollections:give us a brief band bio.

Grave Desecrator: GD was born in 1998, by me Necrogoat(guitar during that times), F.Mordor(vocals) and Butcherazor(bass during time time). We recorded a demo in 2001 with a session drummer, called “Demo 01” (out of print since a long)! In 2003 a 7ep “Cult of Warfare and Darkness” in black wax with Adrameleck on drums. The same who recorded our debut cd released in 2008 “Sign of Doom” and other 7ep´s released in 2010. Before “Sign of Doom” we kicked out F.Mordor and I passed to bass lines and Butcherazor passed to guitars and voices. Black Sin was recruited as well! Our new album “Insult” had Angeldust on drums. But he´s not in the band anymore. Cativeiro is the new drummer.

3. Dark Recollections: how long has current line up been together?

Grave Desecrator: Since few weeks…

4. Dark Recollections: were there any demos released prior to debut Cd?

Grave Desecrator: Only “Demo 01” from 2001. We didn´t have a drummer, so that were hard times!

5. Dark Recollections: what was the response like to your debut Cd “sign of doom” ,is it still available?

Grave Desecrator: Ketzer rec. from Germany released it and did a good distribution worldwide. We could spread our infamous gospel around the globe. Blood Harvest from Sweden pressed a great vinyl version and it was even re-pressed by them. Proselytism did a killer tape version as well. I think we did a good job and got a very good feedback!

6. Dark Recollections: talk about your latest Cd “Insult”

Grave Desecrator: A great cover (by the new artist Leo Lavatori), desecrating music for desecrate your soul! Mastered by Harris Johns! Ketzer rec. released it in Europe and Hell´s Headbangers in USA. “Insult” took less time than “Sign of Doom” to be recorded and composed, but the songs are more well done. More into old Death Metal soundings and aesthetically defiant! Beware the vinyl version by Hell´s Headbangers! Everybody is welcomed to purchase it, or fucking die!

7.Dark Recollections: what is the song “serpent seedline” about, what inspired its lyrics?

Grave Desecrator: Butcherazor who wrote this song. I think it´s based in a satanic bloodline.

8. Dark Recollections: who did the artwork for “insult” Cd?

Grave Desecrator: The cover is a painting done by our friend and great artist/tattoo artist Leo Lavatori. Really amazing work! It´s depicting a bible passage when the whores shall drink the blood of the saints!

9. Dark Recollections: what is the scene like where you live, any bands you recommend checking out?

Grave Desecrator: Rio isn´t a city exactly into Metal. Too fucking hot, samba, beaches etc. Fuck off! We do have some good and talented bands here, but they have to work a lot to have their work known. And of course, a lot of shit bands and persons like everywhere.

10. Dark Recollections: Grave Desecrator play live much, what are some of the bands you shared the stage with?

Grave Desecrator: Impurity, Catacumba, Hellkommander, Angmar, Waffentrager Luzifers, Angelwitch, Headhunter DC and a lot more!!!

11. Dark Recollections: do you go to metal shows, what was the last show you went to?

Grave Desecrator: I rarely go to Metal shows, cos´I haven´t seen too many interesting shows to go. I preffer to go out and drink with friends, but of course, good gigs must be attended!

12. Dark Recollections: any merchandise available from the band?(list items and prices)

Grave Desecrator: We only sell for brazilian people, cos mail for outside here is too fucking expensive! Fuck off brazilian mail service! We just have some copies of the first 2 cd´s available. If a brazilian guy is interested on it, ask us by e-mail. Soon new tees shirts! For european/asian people, chekc out Ketzer rec. at The label has good merch for sale. In North and the whole South America (excluding Brazil), go to
