    I have a couple of Alcest albums, as well as Amesoeurs' self titled, and I want more. I also have Les Discrets' Septembre Et Ses Dernières Pensées and love it. Alcest can be a little too happy for me at times, especially on Souvenirs D'un Autre Monde.
    I have heard of Phest, but have not purchased them yet. Are there any other bands out there like this?

    ^ I didn't until recently. There's something about it that tears at my heart and I love that feeling. In the process of checking all these out, thanks guys.

    So far I'm digging Lantlos more than Lifelover. Lifelover is coming off as just weird DSBM or somthing to me. I really like moments like 3:36 and on from:



    Thanks again guys keep them coming!

    Perhaps, but I also like the acoustic sections, occasional clean guitar, and occasional clean vocals. I do like Darkspace though, which I think is atmospheric, but its not quite what I'm going for right this minute.

    I have The Morningside, working on getting Fen now. And welcome to UM by the way, though I suppose it's been a few months. And thanks for helping me acquire new music. So far I'm not too sure if much of what I'm looking for is out there, but I am a musician (a lazy one, unfortunately) so I may as well make some. I think I'm going to try to create something between Les Discrets and Dawn. Sound good? The vocals will mostly be along the lines of Dawn with occasional clean sections, the guitar will be heavier and more lead based like Dawn, but there will be acoustic sections and the overall mood will be more like Les Discrets.

    Deafheaven. Roads to Judah is pretty much the greatest thing in the history of "shoegaze" black metal.

    They probably market this music as shoegaze black metal because it sounds less homosexual than dream pop/black metal.
