Parfois, les arbres ébauchent un curieux ballet Imitent mon petit corps bercé par le vent Et le lierre murmure des mots familiers Pose sur la vie un regard d'enfant Pour humer les suaves parfums exhalés D'un jardin dont jadis tu empris le secret Chantèrent alors les rieuses filles diaphanes De la rivière scintillante et nacrée. The first song of ‘'Le Secret’‘, which is Alcest’s second official recording, following their first recording ’‘Tristesse Hivernale’‘.

Le Secret (French for "The Secret") is an EP by French band Alcest, released in May 2005 through Drakkar Productions. It is Alcest's first release with creator Neige as sole member, as former members Aegnor and Argoth both left after the 2001 demo Tristesse Hivernale, and the only release with Neige as sole performer

Album Name Le Secret (EP). Type EP. Дата релиза Апрель 2011. Too bad an instrumental version of this couldn't have been added to the album. The female vocalist does return to the song for a brief litte stint, and when she does I feel all of the tension go out of what I'm hearing, and I feel greatly relieved. And then like a spectre she dissapeares into the swirl of guitars to let the howler take over again.

Listen free to Alcest – Le secret (Le Secret (2011 version), Élévation (2011 Version) and more). Le secret is an EP by Alcest. It was released in May 2005 through Drakkar Productions. Unlike Alcest's previous release, all of the music on Le secret is performed by Neige. The lyrics to the track "Élévation" come from a poem by Charles Baudelaire. It was re-released in May 2011 by Prophecy Productions with two bonus tracks (re-recorded versions of "Le secret" and "Élévation") and different artwork on CD and vinyl.

Alcest's 2005 EP Le Secret hasn't received quite the amount of attention that one might expect from a release that pioneered such an intersting and influential style of heavy metal: the lighter, less abrasive interpretation of black metal that bears more than a passing resemblance to post-rock and the shoegazing of the earl nineties. Regardless of your feelings about the genre, there's no denying the amount of influence that it has had in the modern black metal scene, and this release really marks the inception of that trend. However, this was never intended to be the perfect Alcest album. Le Secret is a proof-of-concept, a demonstration of the key ideas behind the project, and taste of things to come. Now that Neige has redeemed past missteps, this release truly succeeds in representing the birth of Alcest's groundbreaking (and endlessly imitated) interpretation of black metal.
