Review by Eetu Pellonpää
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars This EP offers neat impressions from Neige's eclectic concept of merging brutal metal elements with dreamy romantic art pop sounds. As I am quite open to both styles, I most honestly greeted the pleasant outcome of this personal approach. The first track starts with natural soundscapes similar to Pink Floyd's "More" album, wandering from calm ethereal chord progressions by vowing hypnotic webs to dusty corners of distant childhood memories. Melodic beautifulness redeems the charming promises of the record cover, and unites with trashy distortion effects deepening the surge of musical drive, and the long composition sleepwalks trough the rustic galleries of both past days and imagination. Soft and clean vocals contrasts the harder leanings of the music, and the overall compositional balances appear well adjusted. The sound quality didn't appear very good to my ears, maybe being part of black metal philosophies, which I have understood as a part of Alcest's musical legacy. The second song elevates towards more celestial movie soundtrack feelings, resembling some corners of peaceful sleep, from which a yet more rawer heavy sequence wakens up, and approaches more heavier metal territories with screaming and dirty tones. I like this music quite much, but I think the following long players are yet more better. Along with improved sound quality, the arrangements and solidity in style fusions get yet more matured in them. If listener appreciates the heavier side more, it is found from this record with stronger emphasis than on the following albums.

5 stars Elevation is perfection and the most powerful piece of music Alcest has created. It begins with a peaceful, new-age soundscape and then without warning, it explodes into full-on black metal, rocketing the listener through the sky.

3 stars (Please note this is the review of the two tracks 2005 version) Alcest is a French band who in my ears is a bit revolotionary in their mix of black metal and post rock. Take a large slice of Norwegian black metal like Burzum and fuse it with shoegaze post rock. The end result should be somethin ... (read more)

3 stars Alcest ? le secret So, a second EP from Alcest. This one falls much more truly into the category of post-metal or shoegaze-influenced ambient metal. Gone are the vast majority of the screamed corpse-like vocals, replaced by Neige's more gentle crooning. The guitars still hiss and the drums s ... (read more)
