HEIR is a Post-Black Metal/Sludge band from Toulouse, France. The band was formed in 2015. Their first tracks are noticed thanks to the powerful and disturbing intensity released by the Black Metal breaks and accelerations combined with the uncanny quiet of slow and atmospheric melodies, evocating an oppressive anxiety and a deep torment. The pillars on which the band stands are the tales of human weakness and cowardice, and the exercice of its enslavement to these vices. The band’s influences are the Black Metal and recent french Post-Black Metal scenes as well as the north-american references of Postcore, but the exploitation of its themes leads the band to make a cross-influencial music, mixing them to Sludge, Post-Rock or even Stoner, creating a really contrasted, but coherent and unified music. Besides all these influences, HEIR began to forge a proper identity by its way to immerse the auditor in a apocalyptical music cocoon, full of desolation. The band had a great start to extend its notoriety and captivates connoisseurs, both listening studio and live performances, where you can witness the involvement and the mastery of the members.

Words from the label manager, Gérald Milani :
“You know us by now, we love to share our favourites. Even if the band members are young, HEIR shows a true precocity in terms of artistic maturity and proves with this first album that we can count on them to be one of the most important bands of the French Extrem scene. It’s been a year since we have the mock-up of this first opus, and it has been listened to ten times, or a hundred maybe, without even being bored. I was conquered by their way to assimilate their influences, to appropriate the Black Metal codes and to adapt the music to their own style. It all gave birth to a very singular piece of work, diversified, with its own personality : that is all we love at LADLO. Well, in other words, it’s a real delight that we are happy to share with you.”
