With much pride and without further ado we would like to announce the first bands for Tongeren Metal Fest, Belgium’s newest metalfestival set to take place Saturday 12th of April 2014 at de VELINX in Tongeren.
Our headliner ASPHYX needs no introduction. Since 1987 these death/doom metallers have been crushing stages worldwide and in April they finally return to Belgium. Death, the brutal way!
Also set to make their appearance at Tongeren Metal Fest’s first edition are Dutch stoners HERDER and Belgian melodic black metallers SAILLE. More names will be revealed in the near future.
A festival teaser can be viewed here:
Tickets can be bought through http://www.develinx.be and cost €13 in presale.
This festival is the follow-up to De Velinx’s annual metalfestival ‘Metaal Paaskabaal’ which featured artists like Hail Of Bullets, Ostrogoth, Gama Bomb, Paul Di’Anno and many others. The Tongeren Metal Festival artwork, created by Dries Gaerdelen, was inspired by the tale of Ambiorix and highlights the festival’s macabre mascot.

Belgian melodic black metallers SAILLE have recently launched a new video clip for ‘Blood Libel’ song from the band’s second album, “Ritu”, which was released January 18th, 2013 on Code666 Records. The album was produced and mixed by Reinier Schenk (GORATH, FLESHMOULD) and mastered by Tom Kvålsvoll (1349, DIMMU BORGIR, KEEP OF KALESSIN). The video can be seen below:
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.
SAILLE frontman Dennie Grondelaers commented:
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.

SAILLE keyboard player Dries Gaerdelen previously stated: “When creating our new album, I did research on and was inspired by several ancient destruction rituals. The new songs are therefore darker, faster, more aggressive and create a feeling of unease. The lyrics, written by frontman Dennie Grondelaers, explore the history of those death rites. With the drums being recorded a while ago, we’ve all got a ‘recording state of mind’ and have a feeling we’re creating more than just songs. We’re looking forward to unleashing our creations on the audience, both on CD and live!”
