Saille Premieres New Song "Genesis 11:1-9"

Following the stellar "Eldritch" album (reviewed here), Saille's follow-up release "Gnosis" is on the horizon for a spring release, and today we're premiering a new track from the impending full-length album.

Check out "Genesis 11:1-9," the fourth track cut off this nine song concept release, in the SoundCloud player below.

For those not familiar with the Bible, the chapter and verse segment in question deals with the tower of Babel, in which the biblical deity takes offense to the people of the world working together towards a common cause and building a structure that could reach heaven (presumably he's not happy about skyscrapers or space stations either, but as of yet hasn't shown up to confuse our languages and cast us far and wide for those offenses).

In addition to sporting a darker, more powerful sound, "Gnosis" sees some lineup shifting within the Belgian symphonic black metal group, which is now operating as a five piece. Saille 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.
