CELLAR DARLING – release new music video ‘Freeze’

CELLAR DARLING’s concept album, »The Spell«, saw the light of day on March 22nd and immediately catapulted the Swiss trio into ‘album of the year’ candidate territory. Their latest video offering is ‘Freeze‘ – crushing, captivating and haunting! Another chapter in the tale of a girl who falls in love with death, carried by Ivo Henzi’s groovy riffs, the energy ofMerlin Sutter’s powerhouse drumming, and the unforgettable voice of Anna Murphy who takes you through enormous highs and deepest lows as she sings the story of »The Spell«. This haunting concept album sees the band taking a turn towards heavy progressive rock while still staying true to their folk roots translated through the unmistakable sound of the hurdy hurdy.

Watch ‘Freeze‘ here:

“For if to love is to die, will you with your breath please freeze me to death?
As it is getting warmer, to reminisce of the cold that has passed, we release the lyric video to ‘Freeze’. Once again created by the visionary Costin Chioreanu. We hope you enjoy it.”

“A dark fairytale for the modern era, told through heavy yet intricate, progressive folk rock, enchanting visual art and utterly immersive storytelling.” 
PROG (UK), Hannah May Kilroy

“If you think of The Gathering’s melancholy and an elegant Opeth mood, you’re still a long way from adequately describing THE SPELL, but at least you have a rough idea of ​​it. Alone Anna’s engaging, phenomenal vocals, the congenial melody and the truly gorgeous marriage of folk, rock, prog and doom will ensure that this gem will appear in many annual best of lists of 2019.”
METAL HAMMER (D), Björn Springorum

“Majestic, gripping, and hauntingly beautiful, there should be no shortage of praise in describing what Cellar Darling have done. Not just in what will definitely be one of 2019’s strongest efforts, but in setting the bar even higher for what can be achieved through the combination of music and storytelling.”
