Belgian symphonic black metallers SAILLE will release their new album in January 2013 via Code666 Records. The CD is being recorded at Shumcot Studios in Aartrijke, Belgium with producer Reinier Schenk (GORATH, FLESHMOULD).
New video footage from the studio can be seen below.
Commented SAILLE keyboard player Dries Gaerdelen: “When creating our new album, I did research on and was inspired by several ancient destruction rituals. The new songs are therefore darker, faster, more aggressive and create a feeling of unease. The lyrics, written by frontman Dennie Grondelaers, explore the history of those death rites. With the drums being recorded a while ago, we’ve all got a ‘recording state of mind’ and have a feeling we’re creating more than just songs. We’re looking forward to unleashing our creations on the audience, both on CD and live!”
The artwork for the new SAILLE CD will be created by Polish digital landscape artist Michal Karcz who also developed the band’s previous artwork. Mastering will be done by Tom Kvålsvoll, who has worked with 1349, DIMMU BORGIR and KEEP OF KALESSIN.
Jonathan Vanderwal recently rejoined SAILLE as the group’s new guitarist. He replaces Yves Callaert, who left SAILLE earlier in the year.
SAILLE‘s debut album, “Irreversible Decay”, was released in March 2011 via Code666 Records.
