Even with hindsight being 20/20, it was easy to predict that France's Alcest, would eventually cast off black metal's influence on its sound. While the Burzum's Filosofem provided inspiration for 2007's full-length debut, Souvenirs d'un Autre, recordings by My Bloody Valentine, Ride, Slowdive, and Lush ...

Souvenirs d'un Autre Monde Souvenirs d'un Autre Monde CD (2007)
CD $16.80 Buy It  Details
Alcest discography Fronted by the enigmatic singer/multi-instrumentalist known only as Neige, the French act Alcest specializes in metal-influenced post-rock that frequently ventures into brightly shimmering shoegazer territory. At times recalling a more minimalist version of Denmark's Mew, Alcest delivers gloriously amped-up guitar lines and straightforward rhythms that ...
Les Voyages de l'Ame Les Voyages de l'Ame CD (2012)
CD $23.59 Buy It  Details Special Edition
Alcest songs Though French black metal has always been full of experimental weirdness that pushes at the genre's narrow boundaries, none has pushed the envelope as far as Alcest, a band that willfully combines black metal's buzz, gorgeous shoegaze melodies, ambient soundscapes, and post rock feedback. Les Voyages de l'Ame, Alcest's third full-length, arrives with great expectations based on the shock-of-the-new that greeted their debut, Souvenirs d'un Autre Monde, and its follow-up Ecailles de Lune. Alcest stands in its own "blackgaze" space at the crossroads of Burzum's Filosofem and My Bloody Valentine's Loveless. But one wonders how black that space can actually be with melodies that are so consciously attractive and ...

Alcest Biography

Although it began as a black-metal band, the French ensemble Artist morphed into a group heavily influenced by the 1990s U.K. shoegazer movement (particularly My Bloody Valentine and Ride) by the time of its lauded full-length debut, SOUVENIRS D'UN AUTRE MONDE. While the act, masterminded by the mysterious singer/multi-instrumentalist Neige, is embraced within the metal community, its penchant for atmosphere and melody also allies Artist with the international post-rock scene (a la Jesu). This added appeal allowed SOUVENIRS D'UN AUTRE MONDE to sneak onto a number of 2007 year-end album lists, giving Artist a modest, but crucial, worldwide buzz.
