Today, the world is presented with a New Wave Of Folk Rock.

Regular MetalTalk readers and listeners will be more than aware of the remarkable progress that Cellar Darling have made since they formed less than a year ago and today the debut album by this remarkable, innovative and exciting group, 'This Is The Sound', is released.

Before we talk about the album and present you with some quality listening material, you can can get to know Anna, Merlin and Ivo a little better because we have a rather special exclusive video for you eight here.

This Q&A video was filmed in the beautiful Swiss mountains so it's a bit more exciting than our usual locations. Here it is, for your enjoyment.



As well as today being the release day of 'This Is The Sound', Cellar Darling have also released the lyric video of 'The Hermit', one of the fourteen tracks from 'This Is The Sound'.



"'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", the band say about their new song. And with great hope for the future they add:

"Almost exactly one year after Cellar Darling came into existence, we could not be more proud to finally share our first album with you. It's been an intense, sometimes difficult, but always rewarding year - and first and foremost an incredibly creative one. We think you can hear it all on the album. And we can't wait to hear what you think about it.

"Now our focus lies on one thing, and one thing only: getting back on stage and celebrating our music with you, the best fans in the world - we can't wait to see you on the road!"

You can order 'This Is The Sound' in several different formats right hrtr.

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.
