Alcest Spiritual Instinct CD




For principal songwriter and frontman Neige, Alcest has always been a gateway to the otherworldly, a means of exploring his spirituality.

An elemental two-piece, completed by long-serving drummer and creative confidante Winterhalter, their forthcoming sixth album 'Spiritual Instinct' finds Neige at his most personal. 

"This time I had something urgent to put on the table," he explains. "It is a very cathartic record - something needed to get out of me. It's darker than usual, and heavier."

Written in bursts both during and after a prolonged period of touring in support of 2016's hugely successful 'Kodama,' the sense of urgency Neige speaks of manifests in a record full of spontaneity, of immediate impact – be that in the breath-taking pace of 'Les Jardin De Minuit''s tempo changes, or 'Sapphire's sun-kissed harmonies over an impermeable back beat, one thing 'Spiritual Instinct' has is riffs, an acknowledgement and celebration of the black metal foundations that anchor their uplifting post-metal.
