Cirith Ungol's "Servants Of Chaos" To Be Re-Released With DVD

Long out of print 2CD compilation "Servants of Chaos" (2001) from the legendary U.S. traditional metal band Cirith Ungol will be re-released by Metal Blade in Europe due to high demand for the rarity. The release includes 31 rare, demo, live and unreleased tracks, recorded between 1978-1990.

The re-release will be in the form of a double-digipak 3 disc edition and a three gatefold vinyl LP on November 18, 2011 in collaboration with drummer Robert Garven. The DVD portion will includes the show from November 1984 Wolf & Rissmiller’s Club in Reseda, California.

4. King of the Dead
5. Death of the Sun

Drummer Robert Garven commented: "This amateur video was supposed to never be published. The audio recording comes from the mixing console. After we were opening one act, we had little to no sound check, place on the stage, and only limited access to light and sound. Nevertheless, this rare and primitive video is one of the few that exist of the band ever!"

I heard about this. Where would hippie doom metal or bands that make references to fantasy fiction be without these guys. Classic eighties stuff.
