Decibel Magazine Premieres Saille’s Epic ‘Benei ha’Elohim’ Video
Decibel Magazine premieres the latest and epic lyric video for Saille’s epic ‘Benei ha’Elohim’, taken from the black metallers forthcoming album Gnosis. “The Benei ha’Elohim (translated: “Sons of God”) were a group of beings that descended from the Heavens to mate with the Daughters of Men, thereby defying the will of God. They gifted mankind with great knowledge, including that of crafts and magic, but their deeds resulted in the birth of the Nephilim, destructive giants that wreaked havoc upon the earth.”

Gnosis, set for release 17th March 2017 via Code666, was mixed and mastered at Hertz Studio in Bialystok, Poland by the Wieslawscy brothers (Behemoth, Decapitated, Vader). The Belgian artist Jean-Philippe Sonnet of Threadbare Artwork was commissioned for the complete design and artwork. Comments Saille guitarist Reinier Schenk, “Our previous album Eldritch was a good album, but we felt it had to be darker, we had to bring Saille to another level. The logo has been modified as a statement; the ‘curls’ were removed, both in style and music. The listener can expect a more defined Saille, with an own identity. The tracks are more compact and powerful, meanwhile referring to the feel of our second album Ritu, but more intense and extreme this time”. The new album also depicts Saille as a five-piece for the first time with founding member Dries Gaerdelen deciding to leave the band to focus on the bookings.
As with previous efforts Gnosis is another concept album. Frontman Dennie Grondelaers explains about the writing process and lyrics, “With Gnosis (Greek for ‘knowledge’) we venture into the world of the Promethean ideal and its Luciferian counterpart. This album explores a multitude of historical, mythological and fictional sources that tell us about the strife for knowledge and its (potentially devastating) consequences. We also visit several creation myths and scratch the surface of Aleister Crowley’s Thelema. The concept was born during research into Russian composer Alexander Scriabin and his works. His ‘Prometheus: The Poem of Fire’ didn’t serve as a direct source for the lyrics, but it lit the fire that made us venture into above topics.”
