Swiss trio Cellar Darling unveils details of their upcoming concept album “The Spell”, due out March 22 via Nuclear Blast Records. The album news comes with a music video for the title track, available below.
Cellar Darling formed in summer 2016 when Anna Murphy (vocals, hurdy-gurdy), Merlin Sutter (drums) and Ivo Henzi (guitars & bass) left Switzerland’s most successful metal act to date, the folk metallers Eluveitie. The trio released their debut album “This Is The Sound” in June 2017, introducing a new wave of folk rock. Today, the band introduces their sophomore album “The Spell”.
“The 13 tracks of The Spell invite you to witness the journey of a girl who falls in love with Death. In the song released today, a spell has been cast on our protagonist — for now, her love shall go unfulfilled…” comments the band.
The album will be available as 2 CD-digibook (featuring 13 songs + an audiobook of Anna Murphy telling the story behind the concept), black vinyl and digitally on March 22.
