Sarabante - Remnants Review
This debut release from Athens, Greece based Sarabante is one of a series of “limited to 1,000” CD copies from the Southern Lord label. It would be appropriate to contextualise this album in terms of the discontent that has been felt throughout Greece in recent times as a result of proposals to save its disintegrating economic climate. Recommended for release to Southern Lord by Ashes Rise guitarist Brad Boatright, one must give the label credit for having the courage to release lesser known bands such as this and giving the population as a whole the opportunity to experience them.
