Hardcore/metal band Fraud has been killing it in both their hometown and across Indonesia having already released two widely well-received full-lengths No Fans Just Friend and Movement Before Mouthment. As a band that continues to just get bigger and bigger, the natural progression is to think beyond the scope of what they’ve already done in the past.
Hence why the band has moved towards creating a trilogy of quite epically shot and choreographed music videos, the first of which The Prophecy is the title track of their upcoming third full length.
In collaboration with Alexa Visual, Fraud will present a cinematic video with a thriller nuance. The main idea of the clip is the story of a child who refused and dreamed to break the chain of lunatic rites which has been passed down from generation by his family. Later, the child will encounter two choices; he either has to involve himself in the dark dynasty of his blood ties or opt for the lonely path to escape the curse cast by his kin. The grudge is compressed in the gory visual of the video.
“This is new to us, and at the same time, this also challenges us as to whether or not we can experiment and offer something fresh besides music. After this, the second sequel will also be released in the near future. After the pandemic comes to an end, we are ready to go back into the craze,” said Kecenk, frontman of Fraud.
The Prophecy will be released on May 18, 2020 on Blackandje Records.
