Anyone a fan? Their debut album Souvenirs d'un autre monde is an absolutely beautiful album and their latest Écailles de lune is my favorite album of 2010 thus far. For those who don't know, Alcest is a one-man (for the most part) French shoegaze/post-rock/atmospheric black metal band.

i've listened to écailles de lune once or twice and was kind of alright with it. i think i just dig Neige's sound a lot more when he does the shoegazey thing, because souvenirs is fucking incredible
I reaaaally hope he gets a chance to re-record that thing because holy shit the engineering on it is AWFUL

Écailles is one of my favorite albums ever. I thought it was significantly better than Souvenirs, even though I love it too.
