Alcest - Les Voyages De L'Ame

The kind of goofy looking guy you see above is Neige. He may be looking a bit womanly but he is a great musician. In his main project Alcest, he mixes black metal with post-rock and shoegaze. The amount of black metal has been getting less and less since the start of the project, so it sounds more like a shoegaze/post-rock mix right now.
Alcest is about to release his third full-length called "Les Voyages De L'Ame". I didn't like the last album "Écailles de Lune" that much because it felt like Neige is using the same formula over and over in his music. That's why it got a bit boring to me. But I'm kind of looking forward to this one, there's a sample track out which is pretty good:

Alcest - Autre Temps

I hope there will be more black metal elements on the album again, because I kind of miss that. The guitar work on this track is very good though. Neige has a good sense for catchy melodies.

Release date: January 6th
Leak Status: Leaked on the 3rd of January.
