Alcest

Spiritual Instinct (Limited Colored Vinyl)

Nuclear Blast America 19919.1

Released on October 25, 2019

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!


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 the tempo changes in 'Les Jardin de Minuit' or the sun-kissed harmonies over an impermeable back beat in 'Sapphire', one thing "Spiritual Instinct" has is riffs, an acknowledgement and celebration of the black metal foundations that anchor their uplifting post-metal. "Some real metal riffs!" agrees Neige. "I come from the metal scene originally and it never really left me; I used black metal as a teen as a way to escape from reality and that's what I love the most about it. It's the best type of music to express overwhelmingly darker feelings. I usually don't speak about my darkness in Alcest's music but this time it felt like something I had to do."
