Blackgaze, Post-Rock – Alcest from Avignon is fronted by Stéphane “Neige” Paut, a truly free spirit. Originally, he was into black metal once. However, with Alcest it all turned to black gaze only to develop into post rock. Thematically, it’s all very spiritual. Musically, Neige likes to find inspiration beyond your usual metal genres. The result is a diverse, fragile, poetic and very unique sound.
