A vortex, chaotic yet tinged with longing.
Filthy and Frenzied.
A well put together album that just didn’t hook me in.
The universe collapses. This is the soundtrack.
Event horizon in music form.
I like the part with the guitar and the drums and the yelling.
An open, relaxed, space-y, sound; very seventies, combined with deity-crushing, maddened, black metal. There is no band out there that sounds like Oranssi Pazuzu.
“Tvke It On The Rvn 666”
Ensnared in a crystalline azure.
Although I have always been a fan of ‘shoe-gaze’ and ‘post’ styles of black metal, Alcest’s recent release leaves me thoroughly wanting.
The layerings of melodic delays, reverbs, and filters blend together into a musical cocktail that is undeniably beautiful and lulls the listener into a dream-like state.
Revisiting the ominous mysticism harbored within this relatively obscure progressive folk gem.
