Let me present my new musical project to you all :

Saille is a symphonic black metal project (so no gigs planned so far) in the vein of Tartaros, Limbonic art etc.

Members :

Dries (ex-Mortifer, The Archest): song composition, keyboards, lyrics, vocals
Jonathan (Mortifer, The Archest): guitars, vocals
Gert (In-Quest): drums
Filip (Gorath, Horus): lyrics, vocals
Reinier (Fleshmould, Suhrim): bass, studio

After a year of songwriting and searching the different musicians we're recording our first album "Irreversible Decay " (40 min.) in the Shumcot Studio now.

No audio samples are available yet, but will be online as soon as possible.

Could be interesting. I've got some Gorath and Fleshmould and I know Gert from back in the days we played some good old grindcore together.
I 'll check it out for sure.

I'm listening to the song in the myspace. I imagined a Tim Burton's movie with the music but more black metal lol. Anyways great music and really captivating. Not much black metal captes my attentions nowadays but this is really nice.

Dries, I am guessing it is you using the Sailly nick here, a great album it turned out to be. Just received the copy I ordered from Reinier and it's on its fourth spin right now.

This is some of the most beautiful black metal I've ever heard. Love the creep factor on the last few tracks, especially Maere which may be my favourite. Seriously amazing band.

And I totally want one of those girlie t-shirts (I mean shit, who doesn't want 10% more sexiness?? )

Unfortunately, vocalist Jonathan Vanderwal has decided to step back as frontman of Saille. He will continue to collaborate on future recordings and keep an eye on the songwriting process.
Saille welcomes Dennie Grondelaers as the man for the job, known for his vocal work with Natan and bass playing with Gorath.

Things go on as programmed, no gigs will be cancelled. We're working hard on sick stuff for the successor of Irreversible Decay..

We're also working on some new shirts,the design is from the famous Grindesign, they can be pre-ordered in our webshop

A year ago, we recorderd the movieclip of "Plaigh Allais" (with our former vocalist Jonathan), check it out here

Saille news September 2012

New album update
We just finished recording our new album at the Shumcot Studio with our producer and guitarist Reinier Schenk. We are extremely happy with the result, and can't wait to unleash our new opus. It will be released in January 2013, through Code666 Records. The artwork will be created by Polish digital landscape artist Michal Karcz who also developed the bands former artwork. The mastering will be done by Tom Kvålsvoll, who previously worked with 1349, Dimmu Borgir and Keep Of Kalessin.

Check out our new studio videos to get a taste of what's coming:
Saille - Bass, keys & Guest musicians recordings
Saille - Subcutaneous Terror - Guitar recordings by Jonathan Vanderwal & Reinier Schenk
Saille - Haunter of the Dark - Drum recordings by Gert Monden

Line up change
Jonathan Vanderwal, former frontman of Saille, has rejoined the band, be it as guitarist this time. He replaces Yves Callaert, who left Saille recently.
Jonathan took care of the guitars on both 'Irreversible Decay' and the soon to be released successor (January 2013), it was therefore an obvious choice. We are very happy to have him back with us on stage.
