The band comments: “We’re more than happy to present the full album stream of our new mini-album »Wastelands« – enjoy it and delve into its entirety! Only 3 days to go until its official release on 19.05.2023! If you haven’t got your copy yet we’ll be very happy about your support – get it at AOP Records, Evil Greed, or Supreme Chaos Records!”

6 years after their highly acclaimed album »The Circle«, in May 2023 Heretoir will release the new mini-album »Wastelands« which contains 3 new tracks that take the listener on an intense journey.

Starting with the raging »Anima« – the track deals with the urge to free yourself from the iron shackles society puts on us humans. Our true inner potential is kept surpressed by 24-7 pressure to perform and numbing consumerism. »Anima« can be understood as a scream to “free your mind and live your life to the fullest”.

»At Dusk« transports the listener towards a bleak end with the crushing »Wastelands« that deals with the destruction of our source of life – planet Earth. Humans seem to have a “suicidal urge” to destroy what keeps us alive. The song is a requiem on the downfall of the human race.

The release is rounded off by 3 studio live recordings of Heretoirs most well-known and successful tracks off their previous release »The Circle«.

»Wastelands« is a mini-album that might make you question the status quo.
