Alcest is a French, one-man metal project formed by Neige (of Peste Noire, Mortifera, Amesoeurs). His earlier music often resembles blackmetal, with lo-fi production and other typical characteristics of the genre. In more recent years, Neige began recording music that resembles ablend of dense, sometimes blackened metal and shoegaze, with lyrical themes mainly focused on nostalgia and melancholy.
