50:47min

With the release of the HERETOIR debut our dear friends of Northern Silence conquer a complete new territory for their underground label. Maybe the Voices readers are not the biggest supporters of the terminus Post Black Metal – yes we are proud to be called traditionalists – but the amount of bands that are challenging / tearing down old walls is anno 2011 an undeniable fact. Bands like AGALLOCH among other promising acts are real followers of a new wind of change which is combining fire and water (so to say). The German newcomer HERETOIR is also fusing their melancholic, but nevertheless hateful Black Metal with strong alternative vibes. The overall topics of loss and despair are definitely not new, so sometimes it’s better to let the music do the talking. So close your eyes and this debut will become a dark river which is combining well known elements and still reaches “unknown” shores. In some way the band sounds like a blackened version of ANATHEMA but without their focus on electronic music. There are times when I start to hate this job – especially when you receive several releases from all over the world and still the musical diversity is under one percent – and there are golden moments connected to releases like this one. The HERETOIR debut shows that extreme music is not limited to total black and that a flicker of sunlight is in the position to change the day. A real fantastic debut for all open mined extreme Metal maniacs. www.myspace.com/heretoir, www.northern-silence.de
