Extreme Belarusian Avant Garde duo Mora Prokaza released their forthcoming album ”By Chance” in advance of the release date! The record is was out on July 3rd.
The band states this about the full stream of the new record:
“This album is a journey through human consciousness and perception. This is art and everyone will understand it in their own way. There are a couple of things to comment on. There are two official state languages in Belarus. Our people speak Belarusian and Russian. An album in Russian with elements of English. You can open your soul and express pure emotion only in the language you think. The album is not an experiment, but the result of interweaving of environment, cultures, attitude and personal preferences. This is self-development and moving forward in what you do. The main thing to understand is that people in Eastern Europe make music just because they want to make music. People here do not make money on music. They make music. And this is the most important thing in the album and in a whole music creation.”

Welcome to the unnerving and anger driven world of Mora Prokaza where madness reigns! Just like Mora Prokaza, the upcoming new opus ”By Chance” cannot be contained nor be put in one single musical category. A mixture between Avant Garde Black Metal meets New School Trap, integrated with the Belarusian arts roots that lay so deep within.
The band with the cunning name Mora Prokaza was formed back in 2013 by Farmakon (guitars, vocals) and Isvind (drums). Both musicians have a long-term experience of playing in many local Belarusian extreme metal bands. The material for the first release “Bringer of Plague” was quickly composed and released in early 2015 and with that, Mora Prokaza shared Russian stages with bands such as Hell Spirit, Susperia, Darkend, Claymords, Morbiund Oblivion and many others. In the winter of 2015, the band even supported Inquisition in St. Petersburg (RU).
Shortly after the release of their debut album, Isvind leaves Mora Prokaza and furious drummer Hatestorm joins the band commencing the recording of new material. With the addition of Hatestorm, the band opened up for new opportunities and In May 2015 the musicians present a brand-new EP “My Awakening” shorty followed by a new full-length “Dark Universe” (2016).
In 2018 Mora Prokaza completely changed their approach to composing and sound concept and with the release of the single ‘Blacker than Black’, the band reinvented themselves with great feedback from fans all around the world. The band set out for new musical horizons and started recording a brand-new full length after signing a deal with Season of Mist Records.
Take what you will from ‘By Chance’. The underlying aggression in its purest form or perhaps the philosophical glance towards spiritual growth. In the end, WIMG?
