4 stars The Dark Slice of the Moon...

The second release from black metal turned post-metal project Alcest.

The Good: On this outing Neige is supported by the drumming talents of Winterhalter, but remains the primary instrumentalist, lyricist and composer, and so much like it's predecessor, Ecailles de Lune culminates in a solitary musical vision. And what a vision it is! The sound has been described as blackened shoegaze, and contains a blend of hypnotic post-metal with some truly haunting vocals. It does however have some lighter moments, such as the aptly named Solar Song, which is for me the standout track of the whole album.

The Bad: Whilst I believe it's a stronger release overall, the music isn't quite as diverse as Souvenirs d'un autre monde.

The Verdict: Just as beautiful as its cover art.

Starhammer | 4/5 |
