If you like Souvenirs d'un autre monde a lot you should like this I guess. I can say it's good but just not anything I've been in the mood for in a long time. My excitement level's pretty low for it. Oh yeah and the artwork full on sucks:



and they're gettin way too crazy with the various limited special editions:

New *band I've never heard* sounds like old *band I've never heard*.


I listened to the linked song, and it's okay. It's probably not something I'd go out of my way to listen to again.

I heard them play this song live a few months ago, so I'm familiar enough with it. I like it. Seems like it would have made a lot of sense as the second Alcest album instead of the fourth.

I was just talking to one of my friends about how weird Alcest's progression has been. They started out as raw black metal, then went to pretty much 0% metal on their debut album. Then their second album is the heaviest thing they've done since the demos, and now they're playing straight up shoegaze.

Shoegaze is a thing?

How is this the first you've heard of it? Was all the rage on the metal board a couple years ago.

I pretty much never was on the metal board a few years ago Tongue I took a semi-hiatus from there during the time when I wasn't really listening to much music in general.

Shoegaze is just about the worst music in the world

The only good shoegaze band is Slowdive. Swervedriver is awesome and gets called shoegaze sometimes, but that makes no sense because they're just a rock band who uses reverb sometimes.

I like the new song a lot, but then again, I like shoegaze a lot.

First Alcest album since Ecailles that I really couldn't care less about.

I dug the last two and Elevation because they melded shoegaze and black metal in a really awesome way, working the contrast and building up awesome crescendos. But all the songs that are straight up shoegaze bore me.

After Neige ripping it in Glaciation last year, I'm more excited about the prospect of a new Glaciation release if this is what Alcest's going to sound like.

So I finally got around to listening to this (Yes I know I was the first response in the thread) and I don't think it sounds like old Alcest or Souvenirs d'un autre monde at all. To me this sounds much more uplifting almost like post rock mixed with a happy indie song (post indie?) Kind of like Mew almost:




But I enjoyed the song, it sounds different from their old stuff sure but I don't think every Alcest album needs to be a grind it out hardcore shred fest like Glaciation.

Yeah, I'm not impressed really. I'd rather listen to slowdive
