Great idea for a blog. I'm just going through fascination with Fen and Drudkh - both great bands (but I prefer Fen). There's something genuinely beautiful about that music. Still, I'm not very familiar with the subgenre so I'm waiting for your suggestions George Smile

The first video for the blog is from Alcest.It's a french band that I love very much.The frontman Neige combines the ethereal music and vocals of shoegaze with the melancholy of black metal.His black metal vocals is like the depressive black metal vocals.

Here's the homonymous song from the album Ecailles de lune(2010).

I wanted to post more often but still there are no many members. But I decided to post the 2nd band for this blog. So, the band is Fen. This fantastic english group (and one of my favorites) that blends shoegaze and post rock with black metal.

Here's a song from their most discussed album (in a good way) Epoch of 2011:

Post Black Metal?

I must say, I am intrigued! Can't say I've heard of it. Something like Agalloch?
Only other I can think of is The Ruins of Beverast. I have an album by them and the best I could call it was atmospheric black metal. The songs are even more minimalist and post than Agalloch but more low fi and more black metal as well.

I am going to look into this style, starting here Thumbs Up Please enlighten me.
Edit: I'll ask my brother. He's mentioned one or two "atmospheric black metal" bands he knows, local, and I'll give em a try as well.

Since I am unfamiliar, would this be post black metal?

I don't remember well. But I think that The ruins of Beverast is post black metal. I will listen to again and I'll tell you. Yes, Agalloch is post black metal. I'm glad that you want to explore more this kind of music. This is the main goal of this blog.

Well I am open to all, though of course there are styles and bands I don't like.
"Traditional" Black Metal is low on my list but post BM? I'll try it.
Agalloch is a top 5 band for me so I have some taste for it! Because BM atmosphere is awesome, when combined with musicianship/good songwriting ability then it is even better Big smile

Brian, I listened yesterday to some songs of The ruins of Beverast. Well, I don't think that it's a post black metal band.

OK, seemed right to me LOL
Any suggestions?


And since you brought up Alcest Colin, I have only listened to some songs on youtube....I wonder why they're considered black metal at all. I could've missed something, but what I heard sounded like shoegaze. I don't recall harsh vocals, extreme drumming, really anything of BM Confused

^ There are some harsh vocals and blast beats in Écailles de lune, I'd not call it black metal though. Honestly, Alcest was a bit disappointing experience.

Their first album is shoegaze, but Ecailles de Lune is post black metal (and about 5 times better)
