  BREAKING NEWS: CELLAR DARLING SIGN WITH NUCLEAR BLAST
19th January 2017

Cellar Darling, the band we have championed since we announced their formation on 23rd September 2016, have signed with Metal giants Nuclear Blast in a move that is sure to put the Swiss folk Metallers on the global stage.

Things have moved fast since the band received their first UK radio airplay last week on Steve Göldby Talks Metal, the same week they entered the studio to begin work on their debut album. That album is now set for the major success it deserves with the backing of the world's biggest Heavy Metal record label.

Cellar Darling are Anna Murphy, Ivo Henzi and Merlin Sutter and they were delighted to collectively tell us:

"We are extremely happy to be 'back home' after so many years as part of the Nuclear Blast family. They have shown continuing faith in us through difficult times, and we knew they needed to be among the first to hear our new music - and as it should be, everything else quickly fell into place.

"We are proud and excited to have found partners who understand our music and share our vision; together, we'll make this year our year!"

As you may gather from the reference to "back home", Nuclear Blast are no strangers to the three virtuosos, as all are former members of Eluveitie.

We asked drummer Merlin Sutter in Cellar Darling's first ever UK interview back in October 2016, how long he thought it would take before Cellar Darling are recognised in their own right and publications such as MetalTalk can drop the phrase "ex-Eluveitie"? Merlin told us:

"You never know, but I am pretty confident that we are going to kick ass in our own right as soon as we can get our own behinds on tour. I'm also aware of the reality that the 'ex-Eluveitie' is probably going to keep popping up for a long, long time.

"Just recently I've read an interview with Max Cavalera yet again chewing through the Sepultura discussion [smiles]. I don't mind it too much though. I'm very proud of what we are doing here and I was also proud of what we've achieved together in Eluveitie – as long as people judge our music by itself, I'm totally fine with some phrases."

That day has now moved several steps closer and Nuclear Blast have just told us that more news will follow soon.

MONSTERS OF ROCK IN FULL FLIGHT SURE TO BECOME FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

monsters of rock

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
