After surprising their fans with “Insomnia”, the proggy and mad first single from their upcoming album, Swiss progressive folk rockers Cellar Darling — who feature in their ranks former Eluveitie members Anna Murphy (vocals, hurdy-gurdy), Merlin Sutter (drums) and Ivo Henzi (guitars, bass) — have dropped a brand new song and have finally announced long-awaited details about their new release. Their second studio album will be a concept album titled “The Spell” and it will arrive on March 22 via Nuclear Blast.

Commented Cellar Darling: “As some of you have discovered already, over the past 13 days, we have revealed the tracklist of our new album, along with amazing artwork created by Costin Chioreanu, who is also behind all of the beautiful animated videos for the new songs.

“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…”

Cellar Darling, the band featuring former Eluveitie members Anna Murphy (vocals, hurdy-gurdy), Merlin Sutter (drums) and Ivo Henzi (guitars, bass), has taken a turn towards heavy progressive rock with the release of ‘Insomnia’, the first single from its upcoming second album, due next year via Nuclear Blast. The track surprises on every level and takes the listener on a dark and sinister trip, illustrated beautifully by a mesmerizing animated video. Each part of this epic song outdoes the previous one on a musical journey that blends the band’s heaviest side together with hurdy-gurdy, flute, grand piano and a hammond organ, culminating in a grand finale that will leave the sonic traveller speechless.

The official video for ‘Insomnia’ was created by Costin Chioreanu and can be seen below. Continue reading »
