Alcest Re-Issuing “Souvenirs D’un Autre Monde” Special Edition

Released in 2007, Alcest’s debut album, “Souvenirs d’un autre monde,” marks the starting point of the French band’s extraordinary career.

In celebration of the 10th anniversary of this groundbreaking record, Prophecy Productions has unveiled plans to reissue “Souvenirs d’un autre monde” in two very special limited edition formats on September 22nd.

With the release of “Souvenirs d’un autre monde” (English: “Memories from another world”), Alcest mastermind Neige forged a luminous sound that floats on the fringes of metal, yet incorporates emotions of euphoria, bliss, and nostalgia. The album has become known as one of the fundamental releases of the blackgaze / post-black metal genre, and a record that continually influences countless other bands in its wake.

In 2016, the release was selected by Pitchfork as one of its “50 Best Shoegaze Albums of All Time.”

1. Printemps Émeraude (“Emerald Spring”)
2. Souvenirs d’un autre monde (“Memories from another world”)
3. Les Iris (“The Iris”)
4. Ciel Errant (“Wandering Sky”)
5. Sur l’autre rive je t’attendrai (“On the other shore I will wait for you”)
6. Tir nan Og (Irish: “Land of the Young”)
