Regarding the artwork, Bielak comments:

“With all its contrasts, hostility, intolerance, corruption, Brazil has proven to be a time capsule for the mundane times of uniformity and facilitation, which nowadays render the western metal so tame and complacent. That being said, GRAVE DESECRATOR’s story is no different from the ones of SARCÓFAGO, SEPULTURA or even SLAYER in their tough formative ’80s. In rivers of rehearsal sweat and against all odds, album by album, they slowly polished their rough stone into a deadly blade. And now it is time to bleed. It is not easy to pinpoint the spirit of Brazilian extreme metal – it is a fine mixture of tanned sexuality and funerary sacrilege that only few could convey the way SARCÓFAGO or SEXTRASH did. These four derailed rovers of abomination and forbidden fun certainly can! It has been an honour to embark on this journey with them and for once illustrate a flawless 80’s album. I praise the old Brazilian scene and SARCÓFAGO’s ‘Rotting’ cover is among my favorite artworks of all time, so obviously the artwork for ‘Dust to Lust’ pays some homage here and there. The inner artwork is yet another tribute – to HR Giger, whose spirit strongly permeated the aesthetics 80’s metal, and about whose passing I learnt, while staying with the guys in Rio.”

Founded in 1998 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, GRAVE DESECRATOR have established a reputation as one of the most savage and brutal South American metal bands through the release of two full-length albums and several well-received splits (including much sought-after splits with ARCHGOAT and BLACK WITCHERY). Adhering to the extreme ways of their predecessors in Brazil, GRAVE DESECRATOR are true torch bearers of the underground, firmly placing themselves among the ranks of entities such as SARCOFAGO, early SEPULTURA, and MUTILATOR.
