France's ALCEST has signed a five-album deal with Prophecy Productions. The group's debut CD, "Souvenirs d'un Autre Monde", will be released in the summer.
After making a small stir in the black metal underground with its 2004 mini-CD "Le Secret", ALCEST has musically left its origins in that scene far behind it. The band's music manages to evoke a spring-like atmosphere full of beauty, intense joy and light, but also yearning and nostalgia. It brings to mind memories of the innocence and bliss of a childhood long past as well as impressions of a fantastic realm of perfect harmony.
