SARMAT band was formed in 2018 by two guitarists: Daniel Szymanowicz (ex-CALM HATCHERY, ex-AGGRESSOR, ex-EXTREMIS NECROSIS) and Krzysztof Kopczeński (ex-SPIRIT CRUSHER, ex-CARNES). The guys have composed the music for the debut album quite fast and then have started the preparation for the recordings. They have invited Krzysztof Klingbein, the session drummer (known from DEATHSPAWN and many session recordings for plenty of bands) for cooperation. The recordings were realized until the spring of 2020 year, when Łukasz Kobusiński (ex-MORTIS DEI, ex-PUKI ‘MAHLU) was asked to work with SARMAT. He recorded vocal parts to the lyrics of the friend to the band. Vocal parts were recorded at Invent Sound Studio in Bydgoszcz, Poland by Szymon “Sigmar” Grodzki in summer 2020. In autumn that year the album was given to the hands of Arkadiusz “Malta” Malczewski, who mixed and mastered the stuff in Santa Studio in Warsaw, Poland. There are 8 songs lasting more than 33 minutes on “RS-28” album.

The band members made a decision to self-release the album. The premiere date was March 19th 2021 (digital version available on band profile on Bandcamp). The CD version was released on 31th May that year (standard jewel case edition, limited to 500 copies). Another CD release (digipack edition, limited to 500 copies too) came on 30th November 2021.

In the summer of 2021 new members joined the group. These were the drummer Krzysztof Szałkowski (GORTAL, PANDEMONIUM) and Paweł Korneluk playing a bass guitar (EARTHFALL /guitar/, CALM HATCHERY /bass/). Having the full line-up the band started to play gigs.

The band name concept is based on THE WEAPON OF ULTIMATE DESTRUCTION – the Russian super-heavy intercontinental ballistic missile RS-28 SARMAT (also known as SATAN 2). Band lyrical themes are destruction, military industry and human fears and obsessions. The style of music played by SARMAT can be described as a mixture of death and black metal having dynamic character with a lot of fast parts, aggressive yet understandable vocal and compositions diversity.
