Tristesse Hivernale is a demo by black metal Neige-led band Alcest, released in 2001 on Drakkar Productions. Unlike the following albums, this style of this demo is traditional black metal with a raw sound and harsh vocals. The music was recorded with Argoth (bass guitar) and Aegnor/Famine (lead guitar), both from Peste Noire, a band that Neige was also involved with as a session drummer at the time (session/live rhythm guitarist later). Famine wrote the main riff of the song "La Forêt de Cristal". Tristesse Hivernale was later re-released by Northern Silence Productions in August 2007 as a split release with another French black metal band, Angmar.
