Alcest - Les Voyages De L’Ame

Alcest came into being in Bagnols-sur-Ceze, France sometime in 2000 and Neige, Aegnor & Argoth were the original members. After their black metal debut demo in 2001 Neige remained the sole member, as the other two decided to leave the band. Yet, that was only the starting point for changes within the band. Subsequently, they acquired a different style composed of diverse musical elements.
