Le Secret (French for "The Secret") is an EP by French band Alcest, released in May 2005 through Drakkar Productions. It is Alcest's first release with creator Neige as sole member, as former members Aegnor and Argoth both left after the 2001 demo Tristesse Hivernale, and the only release with Neige as sole performer
Album Name Le Secret (EP). Type EP. Дата релиза Апрель 2011. Too bad an instrumental version of this couldn't have been added to the album. The female vocalist does return to the song for a brief litte stint, and when she does I feel all of the tension go out of what I'm hearing, and I feel greatly relieved. And then like a spectre she dissapeares into the swirl of guitars to let the howler take over again.
Atmospheric Metal Alcest. The opening track is the title track, Le Secret, spanning thirteen and a half minutes, which is good since I like longer songs
After six years, the French group Alcest's now legendary Le Secret EP their first foray into what is now commonly known as "shoegaze metal," gets re-recorded and re-released with the original EP in tow, creating a very unique, and beautifully unsettling 54-minute listening experience.
