Despite their small tenure, the band surprisingly enough had a huge impact within the [[GenreRoulette post-black metal]] scene, causing some musicians to [[FollowTheLeader follow their style]] which surprisingly [[TropesAreNotBad enough lead to decent sounding bands]], and even helped launch Neige's career with Music/{{Alcest}} even more than before, alongside with Fursy starting Les Discrets, Winterhalter joining Music/{{Alcest}} and Les Discrets (although he ended up leaving the latter in 2013 by mutual agreement with Fursy to focus on Alcest), and Audrey went forward to join Peste Noire (for a while, anyway).

** The EP ''Ruines humaines'' goes to a 7 on average, due to how low the music is.

Each song, which is already the heaviest on its respective album, devolves into [[LastNightmare utter cacophony]] with [[FakeOutFadeOut several false endings]] before transitioning straight into one of the quietest and most melodic songs on its respective album.

Amesoeurs was a pioneering BlackMetal/{{Shoegazing}}/Post-Punk band from Bagnols-sur-Cèze, France, a ''second'' forerunner for Blackgaze, a genre associated with bands like Music/{{Alcest}}. While Music/{{Alcest}} can be considered the TropeCodifier of the genre, Amesoeurs was the second-wing of the genre's post-punk elements.

* WeUsedToBeFriends: Neige, Fursy, and Audrey are these. Fursy mentioned in an interview that he, Audrey, and Neige formed Amesoeurs due to their disgust at the music that was around them during the time they lived in southern France, along with the tasteless of urban life. They were also incredibly close together and lamented how everything fell apart in 2008 when Audrey and Neige had their breakdown. Since 2009, Fursy, Neige, and Jean haven't contacted Audrey since and Audrey seems content these days without her Amesoeurs days.

Despite releasing an EP, a split with Valfunde (dead side project of Peste Noire) and having Jean "Winterhalter" Deflandre join as their drummer, the band sadly only lasted six years before abruptively ending due to arguments between the band (mainly Audrey and Neige) over the band's future, but got together one last time to record their Self Titled album as their GrandFinale.
