Hello, everyone. Today we’ll talk about a piece of really interesting and non-commercial music.

Some time ago I made an article about the project called Uratsakidogi, which mixed black metal with hip-hop, with a Russian entourage. But their music is a parody and they play it for fun. But Mora Prokaza doing it seriously.

This is a band from Belarus, which play black metal since 2013.  The first two albums were made in the black metal genre, with some progressive elements. But from 2018 they started to mix it with hip-hop and one of its subgenres as a trap.

And they don’t limit their music by just two styles. Here you can hear some influences of jazz, country, classical music, screamo, etc. It’s something unique and absolutely impossible to characterize this music by any genre.

Some tracks, such as “WIMG” for example, sounds more like black metal, they are hard, fast, with intensive drums and guitars. Other more melodic, “Check it” track is something unique, it’s a trap with harsh vocals, with folk and jazz elements.

In general, the quality of sound is high, not lower than do on big metal labels. Another interesting fact that all lyrics are in the Russian language, their previous albums were English. This album will be interesting for listeners that always in search of something new.

You can buy it here, or listen to it on official spotify.
