Shokran started as a groove, djent and Oriental metal solo project by Dmitry Demyanenko in 2012, with the debut EP 'Sixth Sense'. In 2014, already transformed into a full-time band, Shokran released its debut album 'Supreme Truth', that has blown away thousands of people’s minds and was shown live during their Russian tour.
Later, there was a change in the line-up, and the band was joined by their current singer, Andrew Ivashchenko, and bass player Valery Yushkevich. The guys from Shokran were able to release the 2nd album called 'Exodus' in 2015 but delayed the actual release date after the calls from different labels including Sumerian Records.
During the long negotiations, there was no suitable compromise and the band decided to release 'Exodus' on their own in September 2016. It was a conceptual work about the 10 Plagues of Egypt.
The record took the band to a completely new level. Shokran gained their respect over the world, went on the road and began to compose their new, now-upcoming album 'Ethereal', released February 2019. The new record will be a new chapter of Shokran’s History. 'Ethereal' tells the story of the main character, that is trying to find himself through multidimensional wanderings.
