The band’s history began in the second half of 1995 when Andrey Losev, well known bass guitarist among musicians from Naberezhnye Chelny, decided to start his own project.
His attention was drawn to medieval music and Russian folk melodies.
After a year, in August 1996, Alkonost was born.
Over 20 years the band has gone through a lot of different things, but its unique sound and special atmosphere remained, being the band’s distinctive feature for all that time.
The band is currently on tour and performs with great success everywhere in Russia.
The Alkonost’s music is epic Folk Metal.
Their latest album, Oktagramma, was released last year.
The band is currently presenting it.
