Greek heavy rockers CELLAR STONE will release their cover version for DEEP PURPLE's classic 'Burn', coming out October 1st via ROAR! Rock Of Angels Records! Furthermore the band has revealed the artwork of the single.
Guitarist George Maroulees comments:
..Deep Purple has influenced as a band a lot. Especially the MKIII era which introduced the line up with David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes, impact us a lot. So we pay tribute, doing it in our way, to one of the best songs ever written in the history of rock …. BURN!
ROAR adds about the origins of 'Burn':
It was released on the album of the same name in 1974, and was the first song by the Mark III lineup. Written by David Coverdale, Richie Blackmore, Jon Lord and Ian Paice. The song remained the band's concert opener for the next two years, taking over from "Highway Star". It opened Deep Purple's set on the California Jam two months after its release, on 6 April 1974.

Earlier the band revealed that the band's upcoming, yet-untitled, second album was mixed by Mr. Jordan Westfall (Black Stone Cherry) at Monocle Studios in Kentucky, USA. The album also features Chris Robertson (singer-guitarist Black Stone Cherry). The final result is something fresh, heavy and intensely melodic. Fourteen songs of pure heavy rock with great songwriting and an over the top production. If you love strong melodies, big choruses and guitar riffing, Cellar Stone won't disappoint. Just dive in, the album is essential listening. More information TBA.

Influenced by the rock & metal giants of the 70’s, 80's and 90's, such as Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Thin Lizzy, UFO, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Alice In Chains, as well as the bands of today like Black Stone Cherry, Shinedown, Mastodon and Alter Bridge, CELLAR STONE are making their own statement in a characteristic way. Choruses that stick, a pandemonium of guitar harmonies and riffs and a rhythm section that grabs at you, the band is setting the scene and they won’t go unnoticed. Cellar Stone members have toured next to several famous acts such as UFO, Uriah Heep, Black Star Riders, Candlemass and Avatarium. In May 2020, the band released their debut album “One Fine Day” independently, receiving enthusiastic reviews by many highly esteemed magazines and websites (Powerplay UK 9/10 – Metal Temple US 9/10 – Hellfire Magazin DE 8,5/10 - Legacy DE 12/15 – Bleeding4Metal DE 8/10 ) while it was voted as 32nd best Hard Rock album of the year by Denim & Leather US.
