Alcest - Spiritual Instinct

If I could make a painting of Alcest's music, it would be rays of light finding their way through the branches of dark green cypress trees (you know, the ones that like cemeteries). The amount of light shining through and the thickness of the trees' branches both vary from album to album and if you were afraid that the band's signing to a big label would make the light too bright and blinding for you, fear not; Spiritual Instinct is not Shelter, even though it wouldn't be bad at all if it actually was.

Fit For An Autopsy - The Sea Of Tragic Beasts

In my review of Shadow Of Intent's Melancholy, I called myself a hypocrite for complaining that the most popular deathcore release of the year was a cheesy symphonic one, while it also being the only one that I review. So fuck it, I'm reviewing another one. And you know what, I like it more than Melancholy.
