Cirith Ungol, Heavy, Epic, Doom, U.S.A., 2018, News, Metal Blade Records

US epic/heavy metallers Cirith Ungol have played a numerous amount of extremely successful festival shows in Europe, since their return in 2016. Due to the incredible demand and enthusiastic reactions from the fans, the group has decided to start writing and rehearsing a new song. Cirith Ungol now proudly unleashes their first studio recording since ‘Paradise Lost’ in 1991!

Listen to ‘Witch’s Game’ below:

Comments the band: “‘Witch’s Game’ was forged for the upcoming animated movie “Planet of Doom”. Since we reunited in 2015 there was always a question if we would release new material. It was always on the top of our minds and when approached to write a song that would be featured in this amazing movie we agreed. We had already been working on songs for our 5th studio album and this was a perfect opportunity to dip our hooves back in the lake of fire! We are all very excited about the bands future and hope you like this sampling of what we have been brewing in our secret lair!”
