If you have never ever listened to any post-black before,  Alcest is the band to start with, heck, it was the band that hooked me in. 

 

I will admit black metal on it's own is very difficult to get into.  Black metal is like garlic.  On its own, it is very strong and hard to eat.  But you mix that garlic in with some other ingredients (post-black, atmospheric black, blackgaze, prog etc...), then you get something really easy to digest and rich with flavor.

 

Despite having the -black metal label, Alcest truly make some beautiful and epic music.  This track is no exception.

Honestly care more about what Neige is doing with Vampillia right now but this is still a really solid new track.

Listened the fuck out of their last album. This seems heavier and more accessible but still amazing. Love it

I couldn't describe black metal better than this! I definitely was not into the black metal spectrum, and even though it was Deafheaven that introduced me to those elements,  Alcest and some bands like Harakiri for the sky showed me the hidden beauty in the aggressiveness of the genre. If you guys don't know yet I would definitely recommend Respire - Dénouement (2018) album. A beautiful union of the blackish world with some elements of classical music (including some amazing strings and trompet sessions on the track Bound).

 

Amazing artwork! Definitely excited for what's to come.
