Well, I don't have any of the earlier stuff, so if that's heavier, I might not like it as much. But I thought Conqueror was quite good, and the Silver EP I also enjoyed.

Is the previous music heavier than those?

That's why I enjoyed Alcest. I'm not into Black Metal, but when I read it was more like a cross between metal and shoegaze, that got me interested.

Bob Dylan
Bruce Springsteen
Radiohead
Neil Young
The Who

my favorites will probably always be the classics like those five, however several current bands are giving me hope that they can one day be as good as those such as:

Arcade Fire
The National
Wilco
The Mountain Goats
Okkervil River
The Decemberists
Broken Social Scene

I haven't played Conqueror yet, so I can't tell you much there, but the Silver EP - especially Star - is a considerable shift in direction from the self-titled album, which is drone-y and heavy. Like I said, Friends Are Evil is the heaviest song I have and I own a lot of metal; the main riff is suffocating and destructive in a major way. I'll have to give Conqueror a listen, as it seems most Jesu fans who didn't like the Silver EP consider it a return to form, so maybe you might enjoy the debut.

And yeah, that's what I really love about Alcest. Black metal normally fails to draw me in - it's so cliche at times, and the harsh aesthetic can be quite off-putting. The Alcest methodology is like completely re-inventing how it's done and is a gigantic breath of fresh air.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."

Yeah I agree as well, I don't mind so much. Thats whjy it was a new years' rev, to get into more music cos i knew i wouldnt have much u2 related for a while.

A return to form? Really? Because Conqueror doesn't seem that heavy of an album to me, which is why I don't mind it. It has its louder moments, to be sure, but overall I find it more atmospheric than anything.
