Kapatid is fronted by the iconic Karl Roy (Advent Call and P.O.T.), he is also brother of Kevin Roy of Razorback. The band was originally made up of some of the industry's heavyweights: Nathan Azarcon (Bamboo) on bass, J-Hoon Balbuena (Kjwan) on drums, Ira Cruz (Passage and Bamboo) on rhythm guitars and the late Chico Molina on lead guitars. The band went on to release their first self-titled LP with hits songs "Prayer", "Pagbabalik ng Kwago" , "Visions" among others, in 2003 to great acclaim.
Through the years Kapatid has successfully weathered a seemingly never-ending string of trials. From the ever-evolving lineup to the untimely death of a member, the band has managed to stay on the forefront of the industry, amassing a sizeable number of "diehard" fans.
Today, Kapatid is, more than ever, a musical force to be reckoned with. Joining the inimitable Karl Roy is veteran musician and bassist Philippe Arriola, (Weedd) causing the group to reach a new level of maturity balanced perfectly by gifted young bloods guitarist Anjones Elemos and drummer Paolo Rosal.
