A personal recommendation for those looking for something spacey to listen to. It is indie/solo/instrumental for those interested.
This band is quite calming with its dreampop/black metal/minimalist/new wave/shoegaze sound, even for me who I prefer pure or atmospheric black metal.

This is really good. Too bad the drums sound like shit. That's my main problem with solo BM bands. They rely heavily on programmed drums, which is a very, VERY bad thing.
Neige doesn't stand a chance against this project. He's way to pretentious.
The drums are programmed like that on purpose. I could very easily have real drums if I wanted but that wouldn't fit the music at all.
I'm not the one to tell you how to produce your music. But you could get any sound you want with acoustic drums, metronome and some proper mixing. That way you would get the feeling of actual drums, which is preferable.
No offence here. I think you have something good going on.
But I don't want the feeling of actual drums. Don't say it's "preferable" as if that's a general truth; some people like the sound of sampled drums. It's very throwback-80's and nostalgic. That's why I use them, it makes the 80's new-wave influence more recognizable. Glad you like what I'm doing though, cheers, and sorry to say that I'll continue using sampled percussion for Triste L'Hiver!
