Heretoir comments: “We are proud to reveal »At Dusk« feat. the magical voice of Emily Highfield of Suldusk! This track is really special to us – it embodies the beauty that is still left in this world of pain. And it is a hymn for everything that is worth fighting for. »At Dusk« perfectly completes our trilogy of singles from our upcoming mini-album »Wastelands«.
After working with her for our acoustic version of »Golden Dust«, we couldn’t be happier to have Emily on our track »At Dusk«! She laid down absolutely enchanting vocals and took this song to another level.”
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.
