After their highly acclaimed 2008 debut album, young Post-Black Metal band LantlÃ´s are making their debut for Prophecy with ".neon", a musical setting of abstract perceptions such as a flight from reality or the search for support in surreal deliriums. Owing to their mastery of songwriting, the characteristic vocals of Neige (Alcest, Amesoeurs), and the inimitable artwork of Fursy Teyssier, ".neon" can already now be considered a new classic of the genre.

I for one don't really listen to that much "true" black metal. The constant blastbeats and raw, strident feel honestly gets boring (shhhh, don't tell my metalhead friends I said that). I usually need at least a little variety and melody in order to be an interest to me. I think Lantlos takes just the right amount of inspiration from black metal and spins it into their own creation. They create the perfect combination of several genres, without overdoing it and remaining true to themselves. The songs flow seamlessly from soft to heavy parts, and everything in between.
My favorite track has got to be "Coma," the main riff and its corresponding drumming is just magnificent. "These Nights Were Ours" is probably my second pick, starting with a calm, clean intro and burgeoning into a hellstorm you never want to subside.
It looks like Neige is going to be the next Dan Swano, or Garm, or , and I'm certainly looking forward to it.
