Formed during metal's Eighties heyday, and forged in the crucible of early Venom and Teutonic thrash, Desaster are rooted in the hectic sound of early black metal. Though they have undoubtedly benefited from (and possibly helped inspire) the renewed interest in the early "bestial" sound of black thrash, their recorded history predates the old school revival by at least a decade.

I spoke with Desaster guitarist Markus "Infernal" Kuschke about about the various influences that shaped their style, and their resistance to second wave black metal. We also discussed their recently released ninth album Churches Without Saints, and where the band goes from here.

My thanks to Infernal for speaking with me, and to all of you for listening.
