Belgian melodic black metallers Saille have entered Shumcot Studios in Aartrijke (Belgium) with producer Reinier Schenk (Gorath, Fleshmould) to begin recording their new as yet untitled album, set for a January 2013 release via Code666 Records. This will be the follow-up to their debut album Irreversible Decay.
Saille keyboard player Dries Gaerdelen commented: "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 will be created by Polish digital landscape artist Michal Karcz, who also developed the band's former artwork. The mastering will be done by Tom Kvålsvoll, who previously worked with 1349, Dimmu Borgir and Keep Of Kalessin.
