Katimavik86 As the intro says, this is an indispensable classic of the genre. I love this album from nose to tail, it's their first and perhaps their best release. Favorite track: Souvenirs D'un Autre Monde.

about

Alcest's genre-defining debut album

Within a short amount of time, Alcest's debut "Souvenirs d'un autre monde" (2007) has become a standard work of the post-black-metal movement and is already considered as one of the genre's indispensable classics. With his application of Slowdive and Yann Tiersen to Burzum, multi-instrumentalist Neige has created a musical concept for himself that is nothing less than revolutionary - and the actual realisation of this concept on "Souvenirs d'un autre monde" has made for a peerless landmark. No other title would have done justice to this debut album, as Alcest's songs really are souvenirs from another world.
