Cellar Darling are a heavy progressive folk rock band from Lucerne, Switzerland. The band

formed in the summer of 2016 after Anna Murphy (vocals, hurdy-gurdy, multi

instrumentalist), Merlin Sutter (drums) and Ivo Henzi (guitars and bass) left Swiss folk

metallers ELUVEITIE, which they had all played in for over a decade. But they weren’t ready

to end their musical journey together yet, and embarked on a new and different path.

“With Cellar Darling, we deliberately didn’t set ourselves any limits – and that really enabled

us to find the type of music that we wanted to play,” the band explain.

What quickly developed was a unique and fresh combination of grand and heavy riffs,

powerful drumming, and a unique voice, along with the signature earthy tones of the

hurdy-gurdy, confidently fusing progressive metal & rock with elaborate lyrical tales.
