September 9th 2016-St Petersburg, Russia Groove/Oriental Metal artists Shokran have announced the release of their second album Exodus
Exodus tells an ancient story. You’ll have a chance to join the times of the Pharaohs’ reign, namely, The Plagues of Egypt times, which had persuaded the Pharaoh to release the ill-treated Israelites from slavery, the beginning of the Exodus.
Accompanied by the tough riffs, minor harmonic melodies, furious rhythm section, beautiful clean singing and all the lung’s power screams, Exoduscauses a full-immersion in the antiquity. As a special bonus the CD version of Exodus will be a double CD with the standard album and an instrumental version of the album.
Exodus will be released on September 17th

SHOKRAN is an Oriental/Groove Metal band founded by Dmitry Demyanenko, who is also the songwriter of all the band’s tracks and mastermind. Shokran was founded by Demyanenko in the city of Yeysk during the summer of 2013. It was initially a one-man-band, however after the release of the debut “Sixth Sense” EP, Dmitry decided to turn the project into a band, whereupon the project was officially joined by Mihail Isaev, who helped Dmitry record the EP. Bass guitar was later taken up by Rodion Shevchenko, and guitarist’s position was filled by Alexander Burlakov. Thus, a recent one-man-project turned into a fully formed band. In February of 2014 the band released its debut album “Supreme Truth”, in support of which Shokran toured all over Russia.
Soon after, the band suffered a line-up change, as Shokran was left by Alexander Burlakov and Rodion Shevchenko, the latter of which was later replaced by Valery Yushkevich. In summer of 2014, the band entered the studio to work on their second full album – “Exodus”. On March 1st, Shokran presented their first music video for the track “Collapses”, and on March 25th they unveiled a new single – “Creatures From the Mud”. In the end of 2015 the band received an offer from Sumerian Records, but, after extensive negotiations, ultimately decided to remain unsigned. Now, in the year 2016, the band is applying the finishing touches to their second album and is ready to announce the release date.
