* {{Adorkable}}: Neige comes off as a very down-to-earth guy who when asked about things he's into, will gush extensively about, in particular on the band's Facebook and in interviews. Don't believe us? [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=24XrLErXB34 Case and Point.]] His thick French accent exemplifies this too.


* WeUsedToBeFriends: Neige and Famine of Peste Noire were at one point friends and even performed in one another's bands for awhile, but they clearly don't care for one another these days. It's unknown ''what'' happened that lead to the two to cease communication, but it's often believed that Neige's transition to a softer-style of black metal upset Famine[[note]][[Main/{{Irony}} Which is rather funny to look back on when you consider the direction Peste Noire would eventually take in 2018]][[/note]]. An argument could be made that Famine fired Neige from PN due to Neige's constant zig-zagging during his time in the band (as Neige rarely performed in the band as full fledged member until ''Folkfuck folie'' and near the end of his time on ''Ballade cuntre lo anemi francor''). The general belief however was Famine taking offense to Neige's refusal to embrace Famine's often right-wing beliefs in Peste Noire, as Neige himself stated he didn't support racism/Nazism, [[Administrivia/RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment but let's leave it at that]].

Added DiffLines:

* AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence: A recurring theme in the band's lyrics. It's particularly literal in the lyrics of''Souvenirs d'un autre Monde'''s TitleTrack.

* {{Shoegaze}}: Starting with ''Le Secret'', this has been the primary style of most of Alcest's music. Interestingly, Neige claims he hadn't listened to any shoegaze until after he recorded ''Souvenirs d'un autre monde''.

* {{Shoegaze}}: Starting with ''Le Secret'', this has been the primary style of most of Alcest's music. Interestingly, Neige claims he hadn't listened to any shoegaze until after he recorded ''Souvenirs d'un autre monde''. Funny enough, Neige is a fan of Music/{{Slowdive}}, a band that is labeled as a big part of Shoegaze (although some could label them as DreamPop, hence Neige not knowing what shoegaze is).
* TheStoic: Winterhalter aka Jean Deflandre, which is saying a lot compared to Neige who is more outspoken and very casual with interviews. Jean spends most of his time just being private and drinking while playing live.

Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The band's first release ''Tristesse hivernale'' was full blown black metal and focused on sadness and winter. Then ''Le secret'' came out and the band dropped the full black metal sound for a mixture of Shoegaze and Black Metal (leading to the accidental creation of Blackgaze). Even then, the 2005 version of ''Le secret'' still had a darker sound to it, if not due to the production.

** Case in point: When Markus of Lantlôs asked Neige to leave the band so he could focus more on Alcest, Neige ''agreed with him and left with no trouble''. Hot damn.
