A cold curiosity from the City of Light, Heartlay creates agressive, cinematic and nocturnal atmospheres inspired by 90's industrial rock, alt metal and synth pop music. 
A sonic and visual statement blurring the line between grace and destruction.

Founded as the creative outlet of musician and producer Aaron Sadrin, Heartlay released its early EPs 'Injection' and 'Remedy' between 2014 and 2015, before touring as a full live band.

Released in 2017, debut album 'Close To Collapse' was warmly received by worldwide alternative press including Orkus, Sonic Seducer, Legacy... Austrian metalunderground.at defined the album as "staggering, capable to make the genre pionneers extremely pale...".

At the same time, the band has made numerous studio and remix collaborations (Porn, Dolls Of Pain, An Erotic End of Times, Entropy Zero...) which made them hit the top of Deutsche Alternative Charts multiple times. They also built the solid reputation of being a very energetic, intense live act featuring elaborate, graphic imagery.
