Kodama (Japanese for "tree spirit" or "echo") is the fifth studio album by French blackgaze band Alcest. It is a concept album about "the confrontation of the natural world and the human world", inspired by Hayao Miyazaki's film Princess Mononoke. Musically the album is a return to the band's earlier blackgaze style, due to Neige's feeling that he "needed to go for something more punchy, darker, and more personal too." Kodama is also the first Alcest album to feature Indria Saray performing on bass, though he has played with the band live since 2010.
