Kismet is an italian alternative rock band formed in the late '90s.
In the 2001 the band recorded his debut Ep “Rooms Of Lie”,
influenced by the musical “way” and the artistic experiences of Albert Eno (voice), Crivez (guitar), Mirko Estevez (guitar), R.D. Penot (drums) and Omar Pasello (bass).
The press really appreciates the work with so many positive reviews and title of “Top demo” ('Metal Shock', 'Rock Hard' and 'Metal Hammer') and many credits in other important webzines and fanzines.
Thanks to this great feedback the band starts a very intense live activity in many important italian club and local festivals.
In the 2006 Kismet entered the NFRS studio with the sound engineer Ugo Bolzoni for the “Trudging Down Your Soul” sessions, and the result is a “grunge” rock sound with some psychedelic influences, where lyrics run through a metaphoric 'journey of life'.
Unfortunately a change of line-up retarded the release of the Ep and only the 14th of september 2007 Trudging Down Your Soul has been presented in the beautiful atmosphere of “Palazzo Pepoli” in Trecenta, the hometown of the Band.
In that place the new line up with Carlo Rubini on bass, played the TDYS concept rearranging the songs in acoustic version supported by the great musician and friend Marco Dainese on the viola, piano and vocals, who also played in Rooms of Lie and TDYS sessions, as guest.
This marks a new age for Kismet that started to play both acoustic shows, in small venues and clubs, and electric, in important italians live club (Zoo Animal sound, Magic Bus, Renfe, Tempo Rock) italian and european summer festivals (worthy of note: Postbloo Festival – Greece, Bikerfest Trecentallora supporting Pino Scotto) as guest, supporting act and headliner.
To report the appearance in the transmission “Sala Prove” on Rock Tv with the new single We Don't in 2009.
In the recent years Kismet worked hard in the pre-production of a new full length and a more rock/heavy oriented song.
In november 2011 the band won the Final of TourmusicFest at the Piper Club in Rome as “Best Original band” and as a result Kismet is going to start an european tour and the first gig will be at the O2 London Arena.
