Tristesse hivernale (/tʀistɛs ivɛʀnal/, French for Wintry Sadness) is a demo EP by Alcest, released in 2001 by Drakkar Productions.
Unlike the following albums which would be influenced by shoegazing and post-metal, Tristesse hivernale is oriented towards traditional black metal with a raw sound and harsh vocals. It was later re-released by Northern Silence Productions in August 2007 as a split release with another French black metal band, Angmar, under the name Aux funérailles du monde... / Tristesse hivernale.
