The notes are only 7 (5), but they can create infinite melodies.
How it sounds
Like Black metal with great technical ability, but all its members want to praise love on a beautiful spring.
Something like a Black metal band doing shoegazing tunes.
Maybe like the Devil himself, who takes voice lessons in a church conservatory.
Why listen to it
Because the combination of these two genres is amazing and the musicians of the genre are real craftsmen.
The result is unique.
For the same reason, when you think that all flowers smell beautiful.
The alternations in a song can disorient an “ignorant”, but for a music lover there is no “why not”.
Where we meet it
Norway, Austria, and France
When did it start
In the mid-’00s
Who are the pioneers
The Norwegians Ulver and the Austrians Summoning are considered pioneers.
However, the French musician Neige with the two projects he created, Alcest and Amesoeurs, have been recognized as the founders of the genre.
Specifically, the 2005 Alcest’s EP “Le Secret” is the flagship album for the genre.
You have to listen
Deafheaven by all means, Altar of Plagues, Vaura, Fen, Ghost Bath
Days of glory
In fact, after the mid-10s, the species began to bloom. The future will probably glorify it.
Elitist sound can hardly touch untrained ears.
It can be considered very “sweet” for Black metal fans and very brutal for shoegazing fans, but this is not necessarily a bad thing.
What is it confused with
With Black metal, atmospheric black metal, and post-metal
How do you describe it to an irrelevant person
Imagine a beautiful spring day being out in nature.
To hear the birds singing and suddenly …
Hell opens behind you and until you turn you see an adjoining fairy playing the harp with an orchestra.
