Greek hardcore crew Sarabante has issued a track from incoming second LP, "Poisonous Legacy," which is set for release through Southern Lord in June. Check out the "Mass Grave" below. Southern Lord comments:
"The gripping, lamenting melodies of the guitars on 'Poisonous Legacy' define the album's sound, and speak volumes about Sarabante's world view. Eloquently miserable harmonies soar then hammer down on the listener, constantly seeking nervous and reverberating moments to amplify and meld into their modern crust motion, involving copious amounts of righteous d-beat and clarity amongst the crunch.
"Few have done it so well since the advent of Tragedy and His Hero Is Gone, and Sarabante is undoubtedly creating their own approach with impressive, aggressive songwriting, and forceful momentum. Their meticulous attention to mournful atmospheres is maintained across the twenty-six minutes, filling 'Poisonous Legacy' with rampaging passages and brooding breakdowns, and making the record a thrilling and powerful statement from Sarabante."

Greek hardcore crew Sarabante has announced the completion of second LP, "Poisonous Legacy," confirmed for release through Southern Lord this summer.
Heavily influenced by oppression and trying to withstand the ongoing crisis in the band's home country, Sarabante's new anthems are forged in times of extreme austerity, which has without doubt blackened the group's focus.
As a result, the music on "Poisonous Legacy" is darker, filthier, more sincere, and more destructive than before. The album was mastered by Brad Boatright (Sleep, Nails, Obituary) and will be released on Southern Lord this coming June 10th.
The track listing and cover artwork have been unveiled, and audio samples and further information will follow in the coming weeks. More...
Breaking out of Greece’s capital city of Athens comes crust/hardcore act Sarabante, which has teamed up with Southern Lord Recordings for a limited edition CD release of the band’s first full-length, "Remnants." A statement from the band's publicist reads as follows:
"Sarabante’s existence was brought to the attention of Southern Lord by Brad Boatright of From Ashes Rise/Lebanon, who in the end mastered the band’s 'Remnants' debut. The volatile act bears the same burning intensity as the legendary From Ashes Rise and Tragedy, and integrates elements of early Neurosis and other more morose and slower-tempo acts. After enduring the eleven tracks in under thirty four minutes on the album, it’s clear that one of the primary focal points of the Sarabante is their consistent execution of infectious melodies throughout each politically-charged anthem."
Set for release on July 19th, "Remnants" will see a limited edition production of 1,000 machine-numbered copies as part of the ongoing underground Southern Lord CD series alongside Planks, Acephalix, Xibalba, Drainland, Alpinist and more.
