CELLAR DARLING Issue Lyric Video For ‘The Hermit’ Track
June 30th, 2017

Swiss folk metal group Cellar Darling, featuring former members of Eluveitie, have released an official lyric video for the track ‘The Hermit’, which can be viewed below.

The band commented: “‘Hoi polloi’ is a Greek expression meaning ‘the many’. ‘The Hermit’ is a song about the love of solitude and indisposition felt within society and towards other people.”

Cellar Darling issued debut full-length studio album This Is The Sound on June 30th, 2017 through Nuclear Blast Records.

This Is The Sound was made available in the following formats; CD, double vinyl, and a limited digibook featuring three bonus tracks. Each band member chose a cover track to interpet; Anna selected ‘The Cold Song’ from Henry Purcell’s King Arthur opera (1691), Ivo chose Tears For Fears’ ‘Mad World’, and Merlin chose Queen’s ‘The Prophet’s Song’. In addition, the digibook featured alternative and limited cover artwork plus an extended 32-page booklet, including the ensemble’s notes on the stories behind the tracks.

Cellar Darling have filmed a documentary, entitled Out Of The Cellar, Into The Light, which chronicles the recording of the album. ‘Part 1: This Is Who We Are’ can be viewed below.
