Chapter 2 [2013 – 2015]

Family

After relocating to Dublin, Santiago started looking for talented musicians able to fit Svet Kant, and with the passion that the band deserves.

The search wasn’t easy and it took more than planned, but after a lot of struggle, searching around the city, the internet, the heavy pubs and metal concerts; Svet Kant’s first official new member was incorporated:  Liamroy (Liam Molloy)

Filling in the position of both rhythm and lead guitar, he brought in the positive vibes and attitude that kept Santiago afloat.  His constant sacrifice and unconditional passion for the band makes him a unique and key element of the family.

Liamroy joined Santiago in the pursuit of the remaining members to complete the line-up.  The task was difficult but never-ending, and after some failed attempts and some non-friendly people, the band came across the experience and maturity of a new bass player:  Noface (Paul Cassidy)

Noface’s cool vibe blended in perfect harmony with Liamroy and Santiago’s personalities.  Though some rehearsals were set for the band members to start sharing more than just the music, an important element was missing, the drums.

For obvious reasons, and for the scarcity of drummers in general, this quest was particularly long, however, hope was never lost and by combining the efforts of the 3 current band members the final position was filled by French drummer Romain West, who moved to Dublin by early 2014.  Pieces started falling together and the band had its first rehearsals.  After each rehearsal, the band grew individually and as one and the members got to know each other and shared more than just music.  The pieces blended correctly into one, but without losing their own personality.Expanding

In addition to some fantastic reviews and comments from fans all over the world, a constantly growing fan base across the different social media platforms and the feature on a compilation CD called “Monsters of Heavy”; Svet Kant got signed to American record label PowerbacK Productions.  The band closed 2014 as a “transition and cog-tightening year”, and set 2015 as a year for live-performance enhancement with a constant series of gigs and presentations and musical ideas development.
