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 and 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 Belorussian extreme metal bands. The material for the first release Bringer of Plague was quickly composed and released in early 2015 and with that, MP shared Russian stages with bands such as Hell Spirit, Susperia, Darkend, Claymords, Moribund Oblivion and many others.
Shortly after the release of their debut album, Isvind left Mora Prokaza and furious drummer Hatestorm joined the band, thus commencing the recording of new material. With the addition of Hatestorm, the band opened up for new opportunities and in May 2015 the musicians presented a brand-new EP, My Awakening, shortly 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.
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?

When asked for his thoughts on the album, Sentinel Daily‘s resident avant garde music expert Graham Goodge politely declined to comment. However Michael Stronge, resident of Peckham and therefore an expert on new school trap by osmosis if nothing else, had this to say: “Good God! If ever half an hour of music was designed purely to cause dissension and argument then By Chance is it… I’ve listened to it a fair few times now and I still can’t decide whether it’s genius or the work of sheer nutcases. And whilst it’s probably fair to say that hardline purist fans of both genres will run a mile from this, it’s also a fact that these sort of mashups will attract the curious from miles around to witness the real life audio car crash that unfolds before your very ears when you press start… you just can’t look away. And in show business, that’s half the battle won!”
