SAILLE re-sign with code666

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 Gaerdelencommented 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.becode666’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.

Controversial and critically acclaimed combo “THE WAY OF PURITY” returns with a new album

After less than one year following to the release of debut album “Crosscore”, TWOP will record the awaited follow up during this summer. Tentative release schudule is set for December 2011 for Japan and January 2012 for Europe.

The band itself issued a statement:

“during the summer we started recording our new album between Europe and USA. Our second “chapter” will be titled “Equate” and will feature 11 new songs (2 bonus tracks will be added on the Japanese version). We truly believe that this very long and complex songwriting process has lead us to a new vision of our music, due to both introduction of massive melodic parts and claustrophobic explosions of violence and darkness. The extreme mix of DoomCore and New Wave is the key to understand “EQUATE” and everyone not looking far will fail. Depressive moods are created to succumb in front of the violence of reaction: every song structure is meant
to have this further signification. A big work has been done on lyrics too and our message is becoming even more effective day by day. Number “11” in the cover artwork represents 1 against 1 so animal against human, the album is titled EQUATE. The Anti-Human symbols come from a long study and have been trasmitted to us by the powers of nature. We will not issue any further press release until the album will be ready since song titles, artwork, release dates, cooperations will be revealed directly with the first song preview around october. A studio diary will be updated on our facebook and youtube pages. Subconsciously you may equate … Become fearless”

The band will be on tour in UK from October the 15th to October the 31st.

“Folks! It’s a strange but great feeling to be back in business, so to say. ENID is a kind of Snow White these days, waking up after years of sleep, but more beautiful and riper than ever before. A lot of things have changed since 2004 and “Gradwanderer”. I’ve developed as a composer, musician and vocalist, I have worked with a totally different line-up and much more skilled musicians this time… and I took the time to work on an album as long as it was needed, for the first time in ENID’s history. I’m happy that our old label code666 is going to release this coming fifth album. Good to know that now and then taste and belief in art still prevail. If everything goes like planned, you’ll hear the result of the last years’ hard and intense work late this year. Something for your Christmas tree so to say. We’ll reveal all details about the album (title, artwork, studio reports, teasers…) during the coming weeks on our Facebook profile exclusively. Say hello and let us know if you’re still out there.”

This cooperation gives us the opportunity to release “Sweet Relief” on an even bigger scale, while at the same time we keep our integrity and the respect for our fans.

Wormholedeath understands what we want and how we want to do it, and we couldn´t be happier with this cooperation. We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with Wormholedeath”

We are glad that the band decided to work with us and we’ll do everything possible to support their career.

Wormholedeath’s A&R WORM stated:Fuck the small talk, there’s already too much bullshit in the world. Dark and harsh winters of northern Finland have molded these five characters to the rude extreme, leaving the edges rough and unsettled. Unsophisticated straightforwardness with the attitude of a nuclear bomb, Haterial delivers its message through its music. Doing things their uncompromising way, like a kick in the stomach, Haterial is speaking out their minds when they want to if they want to. Just try to go little deeper and these fellows are laughing their vodka soaked asses off at your expense. Love ’em or hate ’em it’s your choice, but bear in mind that given the odds Haterial probably hates you already. Your late, so let the music do the talking.”

FEN line-up update

British Black Metallers Fen recently issued this official statement regarding their new drummer:
“We have recently had to bid farewell to founding member and old comrade Theutus who has decided that he is no longer able to commit the required time to the band. Having drummed for Fen since the very beginning in early 2006, this was a difficult decision to make but we fully understand his reasons for this and he departs with our blessings. With this, we welcome into the fold our latest recruit and good friend Derwydd to provide the percussive backbone of the band and are really looking forward to commencing work on album number three with him.  We wish the only very best for our old comrade Theutus in his future exploits.”
