“Blood Libel” is the new official video from Belgian melodic black metallers SAILLE.
The video was directed by Nicolas Daenens, who previously worked with the band on the “Plaigh Allais” video two years earlier. The video was shot in the region known as “Meetjesland” in Belgium, both in the woods and in an abandoned church.
A synopsis of the “Blood Libel” by SAILLE frontman Dennie Grondelaers : “The video of “Blood Libel” is a somewhat liberal interpretation of the track on our latest album. It tells the story of William of Norwich, a young kid from the 12th century (°1132 – †1144) that was found murdered in cold blood. A murder for which the Jews were falsely accused. “
“Blood Libel” is also the opening track for SAILLE’s second album, “Ritu”, which was released January 18th, 2013 on Code666 Records. This sophomore album to 2011’s “Irreversible Decay” was produced and mixed by Reinier Schenk (GORATH, FLESHMOULD) and mastered by Tom Kvålsvoll (1349, DIMMU BORGIR, KEEP OF KALESSIN).
