Vision Éternel

Profile:
Vision Éternel is a Canadian melogaze (dark ambient, post-rock and shoegaze) band based in Montreal, Quebec. The band was formed in January of 2007 by guitarist Alexandre Julien, while experimenting with various guitar effects during a studio recording session. The band's name is pronounced like Vision Eternal in English. The purpose of the name's original spelling is purely for aesthetics.

Vision Éternel has released several concept albums. Because of his dissatisfaction being labeled as an ambient, dark ambient or post-rock band, Alexandre Julien ultimately coined a new term to describe Vision Éternel's sound: melogaze. The new word bridges the gap between the style of music that is played and the dramatic themes that are represented in the concept albums.

Over its ten-year span, Vision Éternel has released five extended plays; "Seul Dans L'obsession" in 2007, "Un Automne En Solitude" in 2008, "Abondance De Périls" in 2010, "The Last Great Torch Song" in 2012, and "Echoes From Forgotten Hearts" in 2015. The first two EPs were released through Mortification Records, while Abridged Pause Recordings has handled the distribution of the three most recent ones. In 2009, a Japanese-exclusive compilation was released by Frozen Veins Records, entitled "An Anthology Of Past Misfortunes", which compiled all of the material released by Mortification Records, in addition to unreleased b-sides and a poster. The retrospective boxed set "An Anthology Of Past Misfortunes" was released by Abridged Pause Recordings on April 14th 2018. The band has also released five music videos: "Love Within Narcosis" (2007), "Season In Absence" (2008), "Season In Absence" (2010), "Pièce No. Trois" (2017) and "Sometimes In Longing Narcosis" (2018).
