CELLAR DARLING Unveil music video for fan-voted single 'Drown'





On March 22nd, Switzerland's CELLAR DARLING will release their new concept masterpiece 'The Spell', which tells the story of a girl who falls in love with death and to get their loyal fans involved, the band had decided to let their online followers cast votes on which song from the tracklist they would like to see released as next single. The winner was the 7-minute long 'Drown' and today, you'll get to see the hauntingly beautiful music video that was once again animated by Costin Chioreanu.

"For this single, we wanted to do something different", the band states. "And we felt that our striking one-word tracklist is perfect for a fan vote. To let people decide which song they want to hear next based on only the title and length of the song, and to take us out of the decision process for once. To our surprise -- and joy -- the song that is probably the least "commercial" of all of them was chosen and we think that is kind of cool… we are proud of every chapter of this concept album, so let's go ahead and release a non-single single, for once. We hope you enjoy it!"

Check out the new video for 'Drown':




Pre-orders for CELLAR DARLING's sophomore concept album 'The Spell' are available now and you can get the album as 2 CD-digibook (featuring 13 songs + an audiobook of Anna Murphy telling the story behind the concept), black vinyl or digitally via this link: http://nblast.de/CDTheSpell
The band also asked Costin to create the dark and mesmerising artwork representing each of the 13 songs on 'The Spell'. Now each chapter has been brought to life with an exclusive, signed and dedicated art print that the band are offering in their own online store.

Even before releasing their sophomore album, CELLAR DARLING will hit the road and perform their new progressive folk hymns live. Catch the band on the following dates:

Band-Maid MCM Comic Con Live Review/Feature - Fringe Festival 29/5/16

J-Rockers Band-Maid make first European performance at huge MCM Comic Con

Band-Maid, one of Japan’s up-and-coming all-girl rock acts, made their live debut to UK/Europe at MCM London Comic Con, which took place from 27-29th May 2016 at ExCel London, hosting the UK's biggest Modern Pop Culture Event.


The Tokyo quintet who formed in 2013, consisting of Miku (guitar/vocals), Saiki (vocals), Kanami (guitar), Akane (drums) and bassist Misa – have been building quite a reputation and fan-base all over with their blend of cute yet deadly rock music and stand out imagery (appropriately dressing as maids) whilst they unleash and deliver their seriously skilled and striking sounds. The concept of the maid outfit aesthetic stems from founder Miku’s experiences in the maid cafes of Akihabara – the Tokyo district known for otaku (‘geek’) culture and passion for rock music.


Through their music videos they have been reaping success and gaining well deserved attention, especially for the videos f…

REVIEW: Spreading The Disease - Insurrection

Modern metal quartet Spreading The Disease from Kent, UK formed in 2014 and then earlier this year in September 2017 they finally unleased their debut album ‘Insurrection’ which shows they are ready to infect metalheads and critics alike with their no-nonsense sounds…
Opening song ‘Find My Path’ starts with a melodic and resonant intro before fierce vocals come in with hard-hitting heavy guitars, it then goes on to feature an effective stripped back section towards the end which gives it extra depth. This is a powerful and strong start to the album.
‘Words Unspoken’ is a thumping tune with great rhythms and is very headbang worthy and incredibly catchy, keeping up the momentum is self-named track ‘Spreading The Disease’ which immediately pulls you in with catchy melodies and is all consuming with mighty riffs and a massive aggressive sound.
Latest single ‘Greed’ is frantic and driven and features some of the best guitarwork so far and again is very belligerent and is bound to get the mos…
