“Blood Libel”, the new video from Belgian melodic black metallers SAILLE, can be seen below. The clip was directed by Nicolas Daenens, who previously worked with the band on the “Plaigh Allais” video two years ago.
The “Blood Libel” video was shot in the region known as “Meetjesland” in Belgium, both in the woods and in an abandoned church.
A synopsis of “Blood Libel” by SAILLE frontman Dennie Grondelaers: “The video of ‘Blood Libel’ is a somewhat liberal interpretation of the track on our latest album. It tells the story of William of Norwich, a young kid from the 12th century (°1132 – †1144) that was found murdered in cold blood. A murder for which the Jews were falsely accused.”
“Blood Libel” is the opening track of SAILLE‘s second album, “Ritu”, which was released on January 18 via Code666 Records. The follow-up to 2011’s “Irreversible Decay” was produced and mixed by Reinier Schenk (GORATH, FLESHMOULD) and mastered by Tom Kvålsvoll (1349, DIMMU BORGIR, KEEP OF KALESSIN).
