I needed to get lost today. This is delivering ith great spades. No metal to be found here though. Just a weird ambient/jazz/goth?/mental mix in french.

Everything I needed to swim in the void.

Not for me. When I need this vibe I'll stick with Lurker Of Chalice.

Not entirely true. There's post-metal which is technically metal even if the sound is very light. I'd consider it darkwave.

I don't want to sound pedantic, but post-metal sure doesn't qualifies as a very light or light sub-genre comparing to all other metal sub-genres. It's not uncommon though that in certain parts it shifts into more mellowly sounding waters, consequently deriving into more ambient, post-rock atmosphere.

Where did you hear post metal here? There's no sludge or doom influence to be found at all? Also what makes this darkwave, that I always understood to be more electronic?

Those two have such different moods to me, I don't think it's very useful to compare them.

Post-Metal is one of the main styles in the forefront. It's more distorted and a little thicker to be called post-rock. You don't necessarily need sludge or doom to be post-metal. It can exist as its own standalone genre. Read this entry for it which is a lot better than wiki's:

And it's darkwave for its overall atmosphere. I heard a band recently that was considered Neoclassical Darkwave. This album has the same stylings just without the neoclassical aspect. I think the more electronic parts is another genre at work like synth-pop infused with darkwave at its core.

It's alright. I somewhat agree with you. Read what I replied DeliciousDishes with below so you can see my point of view and why I consider it post-metal, etc.

I really don't wanna be pedantic here, but I really don't agree with that assessment. This doesn't sound like any other post metal band I know, all of which are sludge, hardcore and doom inspired. The core feature of post metal isn't really the post rock (which arguably isn't even always there), even if that's where the name might have originated. It's some added flavour. I wouldn't show this to an ISIS fan and say "hey you'll LOVE this one". It's completely different music.
Even with that definition in mind: It doesn't have the build ups or "big" atmosphere the rym definition describes.

Hmm, I didn't give the album as attentive a listen as I would like as I was working at the same time, but as someone who's listened to post-metal fairly obsessively for pretty much a decade now, I can't say I heard any of it at all in the album on first listen.
