ALCEST deliver a beautiful suffering on "Protection"

The blackgaze duo make their Nuclear Blast label debut.

From the moment that French blackgaze duo ALCEST signed to Nuclear Blast Records, the anticipation for the music that was to come began to rise. Four months since that announcement and the band have now come forth with the beauty that is Protection, the emotionally charged audio sample from their forthcoming new record Spiritual Instinct, out October 25th via Nuclear Blast Records.

Truly masters of their craft, ALCEST demonstrate their musical capabilities from the moment the needle hits the record. Protection bursts right in with the band's signature fret melodies and shattering drums right beneath as Neige's voice soars high shortly after. You need not speak French to understand the emotion that transcends this track.
