Another semi-quasi-black metal band has taken all the "black" out of their music in favor of a relatively fresh and trendy, dare I say, "hipster" sound. Markus Siegenhort, aka Herbst, has fancied his band Lantlôs to contemporary and utopian heights. Provocative and emotive, Lantlôs show every sign of picking up the pieces after their surprising but drama-free divorce from Neige. Wanting to move on, there is no post-Neige hangover here, thank you very much.

Leaked. The whole album is gorgeous and full of precious details, but the last song is just... otherworldly. Alcest/Neige should take notes on this.
It's way more atmospheric/vague/dreamlike than expected, the first song is still the catchiest. Definitely a grower.
Now I'm really waiting for my artbook...

Lmao that poem cracked me up xD
This album, is flat out amazing. Listened to it today and it immediately transported me to another world which was much more relaxed, dreamy and beautifully surreal. Music at its finest.

Going by these last posts I was afraid I was going to listen to something similar to latter Alcest, but thankfully that was not the case. This was very good.

Seems like every alternative band is jumping on this Post-Ambient Metal bandwagon, since it paid off really well for bands like Deafheaven or Alcest. This one is for fans of these bands, really good and solid album. Love the vocal work.

I find it kind of unfair since Post-Rock has nothing to do with the hipster culture in Rock

There's nothing hipster about this. Also, I still have to understand what "hipster music" is supposed to be.

Anything that promotes hipster/indie culture or anything that hipsters like or claim is hipster whether mockingly or ironically or purposefully.

Something like that anyway.

Is it just me, or is the reception this album is getting feel eerily similar to when Sunbather was released? I mean it's good, but nothing special really.

Beautiful release, without Neige's voice because he's gone of the band, yep, but amazing anyway.
Herbst is an excellent composer.

I thought I'd lost interest in this sort of music, but Melting Sun seems to have restored it.
