From their Facebook page:

"We are in Markus Stock's Studio E since one week now to record the next Alcest album. I worked a lot on composing new material last year, the result is really epic and otherworldly. It gather all the aspects I liked from each Alcest release until now, ideologically and musically. It's a synthesis work. This record will containing eight songs and I am sure it will be an important step in Alcest's discography."




8 songs. I wonder if that means they'll be shorter this time?

Also, Neige is a girl. Confirmed.

I don't think you've ever fully explained why you are so against blackgaze

Because it's the most bland, boring, emotionless shit I've ever heard. Shoegaze is bad enough, let alone when it's mixed with black metal to create one of the most monotonous sounds ever. Honestly I think I hate on it more because it's become a hipster thing, but regardless I still think it's bad.

Just as an example, I couldn't even remember what Deathspell Omega was like, and I remember liking them. I remember thinking Alcest's first album was okay, excessively repetitive and pretty boring, but just okay. I bet if I turned that album on now I'd probably punch myself in the nuts for even having it on my computer.

You don't appreciate the wall of sound found in oh so many shoegaze bands? Deathspell Omega is like technical black metal. The guitar riffs aren't even that black metal and could be found in an Ulcerate song...maybe kind of Gorguts? It has a mathy feel to it.

also I think hipsters like DsO more than Alcest. I don't really pay attention to them(hipsters) considering they've invaded every genre

No, I think shoegaze is fucking terrible.

Anyway I don't know about the gutiar riffs and cross comparing them to other shit. I barely listen to metal anymore (which is also another reason for the scathing hatred)

Controversial opinion ahead:

Alcest isn't black metal, metal, or usually even shoegaze. They are a screamo band. Aside from the debut album and the first song on Le Secret, I would call everything they've done to be screamo. Listen to other screamo bands with post rock influence like Envy. They sound just like Alcest.

I didn't think so. I wasn't trying to convince you that you like Alcest or anything; just saying what I think on their genre.

Eh. It's hard to say really. I do see where you are coming from 100% but I do also hear the BM+shoegaze sound found in some of Alcest's work. Then again I can also hear certain songs by Envy and think they can easily be mistaken for a blackgaze band.

Yeah... I'd say your statement is reasonable.

CGhost doesn't like shoegaze/blackgaze/whatever because he doesn't know what it sounds like. Didn't he call Wolves in the Throne Room drone or something in another thread? Doh!

WITTR are drone influenced. I know they're not a drone band.
