HERETOIR, Atmospheric Post Black Metal. First single and video out of the upcoming album out now: "Twilight Of The Machines"
The band says about "Nightsphere":
"This album is very special to us as this is our first album that was entirely written as a full band, featuring contributions of every single member of the band. The songs are dedicated to the spirits of the wilderness. 'Nightsphere' is an atmospheric maelstrom that will engulf you."
The band states:
„In a world in which the conflict between industrialized mankind and untouched nature is producing increasingly noticeable consequences, we wanted to process the theme in a piece of music. Inspired by the civilization-critical writings of John Zerzan and Stanley Diamond, we created a song that addresses the clash between the world of machines and the wilderness in a melancholic but also powerful way. The music video illustrates this confrontation in an impressive and stirring way, as the protagonist tries to escape his dreary working world and also to find refuge in the spirits of the woods."
Dancing with nature spirits ...
Only 5 months after their 2023 mini-album "Wastelands", HERETOIR releasing their new intense full-length "Nightsphere"!
The new record is a concept album dealing with the struggle between the forces of nature and a world of machines. Humanity is in the midst of this confrontation, and the dichotomy between living as an animal among animals and existing as a cog in the wheel of progress determines the course of the story the five songs tell.
"Nightsphere" is a dark album that weaves atmospheric Black Metal parts with melodic clean passages, swirling blast beats with calm Post Rock and ambient sounds, and the intensity of desperate screams with the poignant emotionality of melancholic clean vocals into a musical journey through an archaic world.

"Nightsphere" is the first album that was entirely written by the full band, featuring contributions of every single member. "Nightsphere" features ambient sounds of the long-time befriended project "Hidehidehide" as well as guest-appearances of two giants of the (Post) Black Metal genre - Tim Yatras of Austere who fuels the song "Twilight Of The Machines" with his anguish and Nikita Kamprad of Der Weg einer Freiheit who delivers intense and powerful vocals on "Glacierheart - Nightsphere Part II".
"Nightsphere"'s natural and organic but powerful sound was crafted by David Deutsch and Justin Felder at 1408 Productions in Hannover, who were responsible for the mix of the record. Furthermore Nikita Kamprad of Der Weg einer Freiheit took care of the mastering of the album.
Prepare to dive into a highly atmospheric night-realm and emotional maelstrom with "Nightsphere". All while new songs for a future release are already written and recorded. HERETOIR are more determined than ever to enter the stages of the world with full force!
