Cirith Ungol Announce First New Album in 29 Years
On April 24th, Cirith Ungol will release their new album, Forever Black – their first collection of all-new material in 29 years!
Forever Black, a lyric video for the first single, “Legions Arise”,
Forever Black is a testament to Cirith Ungol’s continuing vitality and enduring primacy in the classic metal pantheon, more than four decades after the band’s inception. It is a gift to the steadfast and growing legions of fans, old and new, who never faltered in their belief, who coaxed them out of retirement, and who have embraced them during the reunion years. It is a continuation of the Cirith Ungol mythology, a worthy and welcome addition to their daunting musical legacy.
Now, as their resurrection enters its fifth year, the band proudly presents Forever Black: a classic Cirith Ungol album in every sense of the word. The trademark dark and foreboding riffs, pounding rhythms, and soul-searing vocal attack are instantly recognizable as the Kings of the Dead.
