Alcest are one of those bands, that can do no wrong, where each album they create is a step forward to into their career, their music progressive and a massive addition to the entire genre.

And their new offering ( Kodama ) is sure a huge step forward to the guys in Alcest.

If you are a fan of their Black metal / shoegaze sound, then this is the album for you, because it is a massive improvement than their 2012 effort.

and even if you are a fan of their ( 2014's Shelter ) album , worry not !
this album containes all the melodies, guitar riffs, style of the shelter album , but with a little more twist, a better twist to be fair. 

this album is getting them back to their roots, in blackgaze and shoegaze combination like their earlier stuff!
I do beleive this album is delivering some of their finest tracks to date, With track such as : Kodama, Eclosion, Je Suis D'ailleurs and Notre Sang Et Nos Pensees.

 where melodies are brought in the most ambient, atmoshperic and haunting way !
this album sure is a must get because it may still sound like a typical alcest album ( excluding 2014's Shelter ), but it is still as fresh, original and highly entertaining to hear as if its their first album ever.
