Svet Kant
Translating as Holy Failure, this Dublin-based experimental metal band has emerged out of classical, jazz, even plainchant music, with an enamel of distorted twin guitars, blinding drums, threatening bass and searing vocals.
Beginning life in Ireland in 2013, to further his education in classical guitar studies, Svet Kant founder and front man Santiago Kodela, sought like-minded musicians to take the music to the people. After much shuffling of the line-up, they were finally ready to hit their first gig at The Lock-Up festival in Bellurgan Dundalk 2015. Liam Molloy on guitar and Noface on bass, filled out the string section and Daragh Kenny backing it all up on the drums.
Since their first gig, Svet Kant have been playing more and more shows, sometimes even impromptu! Every gig sees their confidence and unity grow, as the music is experimental the band have been delighted at the responses from audiences everywhere they've played. With media all over the internet, apart from www.svetkant.com, their presence on sites like YouTube, Facebook, Reverbnation, Bandcamp and and Spotify to name a few, shows an emerging interest in the bands direction.
Keeping a tight schedule, Svet Kant are working on new material all the time. A hard working band you have not heard the like of before. If you like your ears being tweaked, you'll enjoy this.
