a review of Grave Desecrator (Brazil): Deathspells Rising

Grave Desecrator (Brazil): “Deathspells Rising”
I unknowingly lost this album and I should have reviewed it a long time. Like I’m telling you, though, I had not found it until last week. This is actually a 2011 compilation of demo, unreleased songs and live tracks.
Not being familiar with Grave Desecrator, I have enjoyed this collection immensely. Grave Desecrator sounds exactly like the typical South American black/death/thrash bands have historically sounded. They live up to their vicious name and I recommend it only to anyone who particularly loves the first releases by Sepultura, Sodom, Sarcofago, Blasphemy and others like that. They do a cover of “Sacrifice” by Bathory, taking that early black metal track through the meat grinder and making that horrible song sound even more horridly, atrociously savage.
Due to the variety of recording sources, the sound quality ranges from tremendously awful to unbelievably bad, all done to exquisite perfection.
Grave Desecrator is great stuff!
