    These guys are absolutely amazing! I have been listening to them for 3 or 4 years, they started out as a Raw Black Metal band then everyone left but Neige so he made it into his own Shoegaze project. He released Le Secret which is phenomenal, that was a mix of Black Metal and Shoegaze, then he released Souvenirs d'un Autre Monde which is completely shoegaze with hints of Black Metal but no actually Black Metal vocals in it like Le Secret. He then hired a drummer into the band and they are releasing a new album January 2010, and they just released a new song a split EP with another band, its amazing!

    Yeah, I agree. I just love black metal for the melodies and the emotion. I personally like the singer of Alcest's black metal voice. Its full of emotion and I love it!

    I love it. Haven't heard the EP so can't compare the two but it's a nice mix of shoegazey black metal and kinda French indie pop. Compared to what I've heard of Alcest (ie. very little) I'd say it's similar but with a heavier black metal influence.
