After announcing the title of their highly anticipated debut album last week, CELLAR DARLING, the much-hyped new band formed by ex-ELUVEITIE members Anna Murphy, Merlin Sutter and Ivo Henzi, now unveil the artwork of This Is The Sound. The mesmerizing cover artwork, created by Christopher Ruef (graphic design) & Manuel Vargas Lépiz (photography) drags you right into CELLAR DARLING‘s mystical world of apocalyptic tales, heavy riffs and a captivating voice, ready to break the chains of your imagination. The band also revealed the full track list of their upcoming album – an astounding 14 original songs amounting to a full hour of music.
The band states:
“The figure of the cover lures you into our world of stories and eclectic music. It’s a preview of the remaining artwork, where each song has it’s own own visual representation and symbol.”
This Is The Sound will see the light of day on June 30th featuring 14 original tracks:
02. Black Moon
05. Six Days
06. The Hermit
08. Fire, Wind & Earth
10. Under The Oak Tree…

The band filmed an entire little studio documentary that will soon be revealed bit by bit on CELLAR DARLING‘s Facebook page and Youtube channel, so stay tuned!
After their split with ELUVEITIE, Anna Murphy, Ivo Henzi and Merlin Sutter quickly realised their musical journey was far from over. What quickly developed was a unique and fresh combination of grand and heavy riffs, powerful drumming and a unique voice along with the signature folky, earthy tones of the hurdy gurdy. This, combined with classical elements as well as inherited folk influences, led to the creation of something entirely new, setting Cellar Darling on the path of musical innovation.
CELLAR DARLING released their first single, ‘Challenge’, and a bonus song called ‘Fire, Wind & Earth’ in September 2016. Watch the lyric videos here:
