Sarabante’s commanding second LP, Poisonous Legacy is out now via Southern Lord and streaming in its entirety right here! The gripping, lamenting melodies of the guitars define the Poisonous Legacy sound, and speak volumes about Sarabante’s world view. Eloquently miserable harmonies soar then swoop downwards, 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 attacking 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.

Greek punk/hardcore quintet Sarabante was formed in Athens in late 2006, and during the summer of 2011 they released their first album, Remnants. The LP was released by Sara Records, the band’s own label, followed by a limited edition CD through Southern Lord Records and a couple of EP releases. Heavily influenced by oppression and trying to withstand the ongoing crisis in their home country, Sarabante’s new anthems are forged in times of extreme austerity, which has without doubt blackened their focus.
