Belgium’s epic black metallers Saille have released a new video for “Aklo”, a track taken from their acclaimed and most recent album “Eldritch”, which was released via Code666 records in November 2014. The video itself was shot under the auspices of Sam Velghe and recorded last May.
Sam Velghe comments: “As always I try to visualise the atmosphere and feel of a certain song in my videos. A song like ‘Aklo’ wants to be recorded and edited in a basic, raw way without the use of tripods, sliders or steadycam. The song dynamics are reflected in the energetic movement of the band members and the backlight enhances the dark and emphasises the song.
The additional slow motion parts contribute to the mystery of ‘Aklo’ and the story behind the lyrics. This video is all about performance, but in a different way than Saille is usually seen, with lightshow and bigger stages. This is pure, raw and dark, as the song, as it should be”
