2010 – 2013 (3 years)
Annorkoth was a depressive/atmospheric black metal/shoegaze project formed in Podolsk, Russian Federation in 2010 by B.M. (Blurry Lights, Skyforest, Hiki), the only member. Its main purpose is to express feelings through music.
First recordings were made in November, 2010. From this date to May 2011, three instrumental demo full-lengths (The Eternal Coldness, Wind of Death, Silent Woods) were recorded and published as free downloads. They were simple sounding, improvised atmospheric black metal work. From June to September 2011, some splits were published, featuring lots of different bands from all over the world and including new songs, always with a different sound, even piano/neoclassical. At that time, B.M. still continued to look for a good sound, until he's finally got satisfied.
In September 2011, B.M. began to work on his new album "Annorkoth" (self-titled) and has ended his work in late December of the same year. The album was released via Depressive Illusions Records. Tape was limited to 100 copies. The album represents much different from all previous works, melancholic sound with a little touch of shoegaze. The music is inspired mostly by nature (autumn and winter landscapes). Lyrics are being kept in a depressive mood.
In January 2013, second full-length called The Last Days was released, and right after that - a split called A Dark Tribute, with Austere cover song.
The project has been closed on February 6, 2013.
In March 2014 B.M. announced the new project called Skyforest, as a continuation of Annorkoth's ideas. First full-length will be recorded featuring Tim/Sorrow(Austere, Grey Waters, Germ) on drums and vocals.
In August 2018, 'Annorkoth' 2012 was released on CD (never issued previously) via B.M.'s own label/studio Nekkomix.
In January 2019, 'The Last Days' was reissued on CD via Northern Silence Productions, featuring exclusive biography of Annorkoth in the booklet. Limited to 500 copies.
