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.
