Saille is about to release their fourth album on the world. The first thing that becomes evident when you give this record a spin is that there are a lot fewer keyboard parts.. Saille and their keyboard player did part ways and it had a definite influence on their sound.
The second thing that is noticeable is that Saille wrote a darker and angrier record. The atmosphere reminded me of their second record Ritu. And that happens to be my favorite Saille record of the three previous ones.
And even though this record sounds harsher than their previous records they still maintained that epic quality in their music. I was reminded of bands like older Keep of kalessin and Naglfar. These bands also combined harsh black metal with epic parts and a dark feeling.
