Guitarist and vocalist Butcherazor comments on behalf of the band:
"The track 'A Witching Whore' is based on a narrative about a mystical and unknown character from Rio de Janeiro in the XVIII Century, known as 'Bárbara dos Prazeres' ('Barbara of the Delights'). She was probably an even more gruesome and bloody Brazilian version of the infamous Elizabeth Bathory. We are the first band to evoke Bárbara's memory in music. She was a famous prostitute in Rio at the time, yet over the years she grew depraved. In witchcraft and black magic she found a possible solution to bring her once splendorous beauty back: virgin blood! Barbara was responsible for bloodbaths sacrificing hundreds of newborn children. We are musically expressing all the torments this woman carried out on her victims with harsh riffs dragged from a devastating foundation, an outstanding guitar solo, as well as highlights reflecting the apex of pain. Even most people living in Rio have not heard about this horrendous story. This veiled secrecy and dark contrast with open and 'sunny' Rio that most of you might associate with this city give the essential grey touch to this song. Embark onto this journey, where death is certain, but can come painfully slow."
The artwork of 'Dust to Lust' has been created by renowned Polish artist Zbigniew M. Bielak and can be viewed below.
