about

Peasant return to Roastin' Records with their most concise, hard-hitting and diverse work yet, Unrest Eternal.

Thrashing punk and metallic hardcore are bashed together to create a sonic onslaught rooted in aggression, terror and despair. Solos, synths, guitars and drums rapid fire through the record, while new vocalist Adri Jordaan brings a relentless vocal performance, bringing a hint of death metal into the mix.

Our world is in unrest, and unrest is eternal.

Vocals - Adri Jordaan
Guitar - Pieter Jordaan
Guitar - Immanuel Bester
Bass - Keagan Van Rooyen
Drums - Graham Pitout

Track Name: Life's End
Inhale life’s end, we are gods wearing hollow crowns
Put our lives on a silver platter, until the starving can eat no more
Spilling blood in the soil, slap a noose on the young

Lord take a step back,
behind the shadow of lies
the living eyes have never bled this blind
False guidance held high,
a sermon of sin, a sign of the times

All hope is lost, death springs new life, grasping at the seams

Milk the tree of its fruit while the herd circle the few that remain,
No violence needed but the mental strain takes place

Enough to bring a mountain to its knees
Ignore the signs around us and burn the life inside

Dead hearts
Dead hearts beating

Tear us apart, Dead beating hearts
Inhale life’s end, we are gods wearing hollow crowns
Track Name: Sirens
Beautiful ruined monuments, history burned to the ground
Unity, dispersed more than ever, disinherit our own heritage

Fight for a revolution that doesn't even exist, make belief childish ambition

Revel in the darkness that we create, lost in the fire of damnation

Erode, erode
The planet we live on
Sown sacrifice summons the curse

Imagine a peace where world’s coexisted
Impossible
Track Name: The Road
Freedom’s warmth everlasting
How we hope the feeling would never pass

Damp leaves twist and turn left a story untold
How the land mourns a past left unknown
Lost in the ages
Hidden from mortal eyes

Breathe deep the scent of rain
Soil plowed the ground brings new joy in the sorrow we carry across

Veil of gray sweeps the sky as the cloudy hills rise above, fields rustle to calm the silent

Journey far forest deep, landscapes unfold
Seal our hearts in the chests underground

Blind unbound we travel roads, as illumination cracks the clouds
Both sated and shaken return, to the end of the highway

Determined we will remain
For the forsaken we carry the pain
Solemnly rest in peace
The reminder
Track Name: The Wreckage
Do we even care?

While the land is plundered and souls are scattered amongst the corpses

Down a bottle to drown the thought there always another day

Until the ghosts comeback.

It's easy to run your mouth
High up on your horse

Preach untruth lies misinformation
Ruin the lives others that cross your path
Slither your way to the top
Cold serpent eyes

I hope you it makes you feel good, justified
To drive another to take his own life
A humble visage while the demon lurks beneath

I hold on to what remains of my sanity

Liar, coward, deceiver
Insecure to the bone
Liar, coward, deceiver
Revel in the sewage that is your soul

I hope you find peace, in the hell that you reside in

Dark is the howl, hard is the head, soft is the heart,

Distorted images
Of what was and what should be
Misplaced fears strong in the paradox
What are we even anymore?
Track Name: Roots
Fading through memories no ledges to hold on
Climbing to sunlight out walls that surround us
Poison seeping in veins of the ancient left to decay

A fall from grace
Pulled down by the chains
Held back by the burden of self doubt
Resources spread amongst the privileged
While the world turns insane

Hide your head in the ground from the chaos our daily routines are filled with the reminder

That no one is immune

Throw what's left at the end of the scrap heap
Piled up high for the lost to scavenge
Living to die

A fall from grace
Pulled down by the chains
Held back by the burden of self doubt
Resources spread amongst the privileged
While the world turns insane

You might not feel the same
Until dead end up on your doorstep
You might not feel the same
Until dead end up at your feet
Track Name: Unrest Eternal
Unrest eternal
The unshakeable burden
A torment to last for all time
A pain unwavering that's chained to this life

Destruction
The human result
The power and the glory
All a path to a halt
Where do
We turn to?

No one can be spared
No one is exempt

When faith is lost
When lives are cost
When loss is gained
Again and again
Where do
We turn to?

No one can be spared
No one is exempt

Unrest eternal
Take me out

Take me out
Make me no more
Give this pain to somebody else
Someone with a stronger soul
Track Name: Ligature
Dragging along the line again
I feel the air deepen with regret
Longing for an altered state of mind
Depraved of the light that divides the dark within

Ligature tied to the soul
Neglect the ones around us and lose what cannot ever be regained
Anchor tied to our ankles
Mourn the loss at the grave
That we buried ourselves in

Falling through the haze of fog beneath us
No land to ground ourselves to this place

Ligature tied to the soul
Neglect the ones around us and lose what cannot ever be regained
Anchor tied to our ankles
Mourn the loss at the grave
That we buried ourselves in

Neglect the ones around us and lose what cannot be regained

Never lose the feeling or reap the past forever long
Track Name: Destined to Dirt
The noose is loose
The beast has been born
The dawn of another loose cannon
In a wicked world that's torn

Pulling me limb from limb
With this body built of sin
I Manifest and i suffer
This vessel is destined to dirt

Don't let me go

Holding on to nothing
The disaffected youth
Cursed from the beginning
In the endless search for truth

The eternal search for purpose
I will perish alone
Only the wind through the trees
Will begin to call me home

Chasing the dawn
Til the end of the world
Im banished and gone

Im destined to dirt
You're destined to dirt
Track Name: Earth Breaker
Earth shatters as a thousand voices echo through the tunnels
Separate the cries from the clamour beneath the rubble
Coal dusted faces scurry to the light that shimmers
From oil filled lamps that extinguish one by one

Breaking rocks where Death reputes under the surface
As the sky collapses above doom filled caverns
Rooms of amber encase bodies of those left behind
The hearth in the hearts of men fragment for all time

Love ones abandoned without a choice or say
Make your peace with the devil cause God can't hear you now

Reaching out dirt filled chambers as the cinder-shards burn hands
Revoke the will to live, no one will judge you here

Earth shatters as a thousand voices are silenced in the tunnels
Separate the gasps from the clamour beneath the rubble
Coal dusted faces lifeless underground
War rips the world asunder as they perish below
