Desecrator, Northcote Social Club 29th August 2019
Desecrator are a 4-piece Thrash Metal band based in Melbourne, Australia.
With a sound that has been compared to early Testament, Death Angel and Sacred Reich, DESECRATOR’s twin guitar attack, punishing rhythm section and blood soaked vocals have won over the old guard of staunch metal fans as well as recruiting the new wave of young thrashers.
Formed in 2008 by guitarist/vocalist Riley Strong, DESECRATOR quickly gained popularity in their home country of Australia – releasing a self-titled demo and touring with bands such as Forbidden, Warbringer, Mortal Sin, Hobb’s Angel of Death, Macabre and Toxic Holocaust. In 2011 they released their debut album ‘LIVE TIL DEATH’. Recorded at the iconic ‘Arthouse’ in Melbourne and mixed & mastered in Germany by acclaimed Thrash producer Harris Johns, LIVE TIL DEATH was released on a limited edition CD – with 666 hand-numbered copies produced. LIVE TIL DEATH gained widespread acclaim for it’s uniqueness as a live album debut release, and it’s raw, uncompromising THRASH sound.
