    Psychic TV  – Haçienda

    Label: Cold Spring
    Format: CD, Album, Limited Edition
    Country: UK
    Released: 09 Dec 2013
    Style: Industrial, Experimental, Alternative Rock

    Second album for norwegian maestro Ketilon greytone label. Bleak and secluded sound world, featuring six looming movements of darkly, post-industrial, isolationist ambience in the pure nordic shining coldness.

    The music Taphephobia makes is mostly based on manipulated guitars (except house of memories that is mostly based on sounds). Taphephobia try to get out the feelings he has at the moment when Ketil compose the music. The idea is to create a atmosphere that is sometimes scary, and sometimes beautiful, like for example a good thriller drama movie. Taphephobia is very skilled to create a cinematic atmosphere combined with personal feelings like fear, hope, hate, regrets etc… The main goal is to make the listener able to dream away with the music.

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

    With the release of «Souvenirs d’un autre monde», Alcest mastermind Neige forged a luminous new sound that floats on the fringes of metal, yet incorporates emotions of euphoria, bliss and nostalgia. The singer and multi-instrumentalist dedicated the album to his childhood memories of experiences in a spiritual otherworld; personal themes that would become conceptual cornerstones of subsequent Alcest albums.

    «Souvenirs…» became known as one of the fundamental releases of the Blackgaze / Post-Black Metal genre, a record that continually influences countless other bands in its wake, and was selected by Pitchfork as one of its «50 Best Shoegaze Albums of All Time».
