The latest triumphant single release by CELLAR DARLING, the hyped new band of ex-ELUVEITIE members Anna Murphy, Merlin Sutter and Ivo Henzi, confirms that CELLAR DARLING are a force to be reckoned with, and they are just getting started!
The latest single 'Avalanche' promotes their highly anticipated debut album »This Is The Sound«, due to be released on Nuclear Blast Records in just a couple of weeks, on June 30th 2017. 'Avalanche' tells yet another grim abstract story, painting a picture of the end of things. In band’s own words:
“We'd like to take you on another journey into a picturesque, abstract world. Listen to the summoners of the ‘Avalanche'. A story about a cult and a freezing end to an intimate deathwish.
Shot in the heat of beautiful Tenerife, an intentionally contradictory setting, this video tells you our story with symbolism and movement, contrasts & metaphors. So sit back and let your imagination run wild, enjoy! “

The band’s previous single 'Black Moon' confirmed the Swiss ‘newcomers’ are in it to win it. Released only 3 weeks ago to an overwhelming response, 'Black Moon' has placed CELLAR DARLING firmly on the map with interest pouring in from all over the world, appealing to rock and metal fans alike with a signature folky hurdy-gurdy tones, Henzi’s trademark guitar riffs, Sutter’s powerful drumming and of course Anna Murphy’s unique voice she has become known for, leading us through an apocalyptic vision of the end of the world as seen by different cultures and religions, all engulfed in a lunar eclipse.

"»This Is The Sound«…is sensibly chaotic. It perfectly captures the feeling of being in the eye of a nasty storm, representing a moment of pure bliss, along with the underlying turbulence." - 9.0 – Owais Nabi, Metalwani.com
In addition, the band released the first part of their album documentary “Out of the cellar, into the light”. Part 1, entitled “This is who we are”, is a great insight into the band’s past, the three characters who formed the band and the glue that holds them together.
