Dublin’s experimental metal combo Svet Kant are thrilled to present their new official video for the track “Sea of Planets”.

“Sea of Planets” is a track taken from “The Visage Unbiased”, due for release on May 31st, 2019.

Watch the video for “Sea of Planets” below.

The video was produced, directed and edited by the talented Olga Kuzmenko.

“Sea of Planets”, as well as the rest of the album, was composed by Santiago Kodela. Santiago holds a bachelors degree in music performance specialized in classical guitar and decided it would be a good opportunity to present a different aspect of the band to the audience. For this piece, Santiago contacted Rebecca Rodgers, a good friend of him and colleague at the Institution where he studied classical music and composition (Royal Irish Academy of Music). The piece was inspired by Opeth’s “Coil”.  Even though the aforementioned track doesn’t combine male and female vocals singing together in harmonies, for “Sea of Planets”, Santiago wanted to experiment with the idea of intertwining melodies carried by both singers. These melodies work independently, sometimes fusing together, and sometimes working in opposition.  

The song speaks about how will we depart onto the next world. Will we leave being a legacy of bitterness and sourness or will we let go of all our resentment and material possessions and do what’s right both for us and for the world we leave behind? It is a song that talks about facing the inevitability of death in the best way possible, bringing only positive thoughts and memories while leaving behind everything that troubles our minds.  

The track wraps-up the record and aims to close the crazy, experimental journey in a meditative and reflective state of mind. Almost like a much-sought rest after going back and forth onto the realms of chaos and unpredictability.

The song was supervised and coached by Judith Mokk, an international coaching legend, who has taught the likes of Mick Jagger, Tom Yorke, Eddie Vedder, and many more international stars.

“The Visage Unbiased” sees Svet Kant working for the first time with Ireland’s top metal producer Michael Richards (Dead Label, Cruachan) at Trackmix Studio on tracking and mixing; with final mastering at New York’s Sterling Sound by the hand of legendary engineer Ted Jensen (Deftones, Pantera, Alice in Chains, Gojira).

Formed in early 2011, Svet Kant became Santiago Kodela’s main priority after leaving Argentina behind.Through a quest of experimenting and defying the boundaries of the metal genre, Svet Kant re-designs both harmony and rhythm while defining a unique and un-missable personal sound. Completing line-up with Daragh Kenny (drums), Liamroy (guitars) and Noface (bass), the band constantly amazes audiences with their powerful and crushing performances.
