Alcest has never released any real full length album but the French band is already cult. After a split and a demo, Neige (the main man of the combo and… only musician) found a deal with the famous German label Prophecy to release his first album, "Souvenirs D'un Autre Monde". The album will be out in August and you can be sure of one thing, we will remember it!

  Don't let the ratings be an indication for you. Alcest improved DRASTICALLY on their second album, which experienced metal fans should listen to first (in my opinion).

Rating: 9 I don't really think of this as a metal album, but it's very beautiful nonetheless.

Rating: 8 The production here is very different to Alcest's other albums, yet it still retains that beautiful atmosphere and manages to support the hypnotic, flowery songs running throughout. A very good debut that never seems to go on for too long.

Rating: 9 My fav album from Alcest thus far. Title track is quite beautiful. Tir Nan og really does sound like a enya complication.

  The guitar sound appears heavier than the future releases.....But still so relaxing, so soothing. I love Alcest. Gorgeous sound as always

Rating: 8 I prefer this to Neige's following efforts. It isn't exactly metal, I know, but it is surely soothing, beautiful and relaxing. "Souvenirs D'un Autre Monde" and "Ciel Errant" are both fantastic songs.

Shame that he couldn't keep it up for too long. The latest one is good imo but just a shadow of what he did before. But still... Check out Le Secret and Écailles De Lune. Those are at least as good as this one imo.

Yeah, I've read that his latest album isn't as great as the first two, sadly. I'll be sure to check out the 2nd album and EP though!

And his side project Amesoeurs . If you are into alternative music, that is.

There's not much of the black influences in this album, try out Ecailles Des Lune, where the black elements are present.

I really felt like this album sounded like Mastodon towards the end, actually.

It was a reference to that post in the Mastodon album thread about the last minutes of a song that were supposed to sound like Alcest. A joke, that you just missed .

It seems like you're a humorous and intellegent woman, you understood all the jokes posted on this website that were actually not really funny. Good for you.

Exactly. I am omniscient. And immune to cheap sarcasm and gratuitous shots coming from less funny and intelligent people.

Now don't quote me back here, this is off-topic. You can be as unpleasant as you want in the pub.
