Posted by admin | Filed under Featured article
Belgian “Neoclassical Black Metal” band SAILLE have inked a new multi-album deal with code666 (part of the Aural Music Group).
The band, who are inspired by the legends of European Black metal, formed in the summer of 2008 by Keyboard player Dries to create the music he was fond of (symphonic black metal with a threatening feel, in the style of Tartaros, Limbonic Art and Keep of Kalessin) Dries started writing several songs of which some contained remnants of Dries’ former band Mortifer. It was thus a logical choice to cooperate with former Mortifer vocalist/guitarplayer Jonathan Vanderwal. After contacting drummer Gert Monden of In-Quest and text-writer Filip Dupont of Gorath, the further development of songs could proceed. with the help from ReinieR of Fleshmould/Shumcot studio and several other musicians the recordings for the first album “Irreversible Decay” started at the end of 2009. SAILLE‘s debut album, “Irreversible Decay”, was issued in February 2011 through code666 with worldwide critical acclaim.
SAILLE mainman Dries Gaerdelen commented on the new deal: “We are very proud to be working with code666 again. They supported us since the very beginning and it is important for us to have such a renowned label with us. We admire several bands that this label works with and look forward to releasing our second album under the code666 mark. We are also working on a special tour package for April 2012 together with other Belgian bands, more info here: www.blackalliance.be“
code666′s Emiliano Lanzoni stated: “SAILLE are great musicians: these guys have great musical talent, great style, and great attitude. They’re a hard-working, motivated bunch of guys and they have what it takes to rise to the top of the current metal scene.”
SAILLE are now beginning work on their code666 second album, to be released worldwide in late 2012.
