The details (from wikipedia)


Stéphane Paut, mostly known as Neige (Snow), is a French songwriter, singer and multi-instrumentalist musician from Bagnols-sur-Cèze, now relocated to Paris. He is the creator and leader of shoegazing band/project Alcest and the main man behind Amesoeurs; he sings lead vocals and plays guitar, bass and keyboards on both bands and is also a drummer. His most recent activity is in Sylvaine on drums.


Neige quickly started to gain public recognition for his involvement as a drummer and live rhythm guitarist for black metal band Peste Noire in the beginning of the 2000s. He also became involved with black metal band Mortifera in 2003 up to the Vastiia Tenebrd Mortifera (2004) album for which he wrote two songs. In parallel, he really started to make a name for himself with his main bands Amesoeurs and Alcest. Alcest's first EP Le Secret (Drakkar Productions; 2005) and album Souvenirs d'un autre monde (Prophecy Productions; 2007) mixing numerous shoegaze rock and metal influences skyrocketed Neige to fame, which led him to lay Amesoeurs to rest. Later he also provided vocals for Old Silver Key and Lantlôs and live bass for Les Discrets. In 2007 he was also asked by Rune Veddaa to make vocals on the forthcoming Forgotten Woods album entitled Intolerance Div. but this collaboration didn't come to fruition.
