The first official Cirith Ungol website was run by Robert Garven himself from 1999 to 2003.

Then a new site was launched: cirith-ungol.dragonight.de from 2004 and truemetal.org/cirithungol ca. 2007-2009.

After that site was discontinued, I volunteered to create a new site, so I created The Cirith Ungol Webpit, a fansite hand written in messy PHP/MySQL and launched it in March 2010. That site was very inspired by the comprehensiveness of The Iron Maiden Commentary and Black Sabbath Timeline. Bad Religion and Metallica is also great.

This website launched more than five years later is an attempt to clean up the messyness a bit and to be more dynamic and mobile-friendly.

This website is an ongoing project and not a finished product.

But remember also this

You also need to think about removing an unofficial item on YouTube, Discogs, Metal-Archives, YouTube, Setlist and so on – they are also plagiarism and illegal. Or if not, what is the difference between Cirith Ungol Online has “stealing” items, but big website or other personal account is not stealing the items, but it is exactly the same items? I have no monetizing on YouTube. Please explain me. Just curious.

All the account are fan or “fan”. They have recorded on other Youtube, streaming, or CD, DVD, or possibly they have recorded on their own mobile camera live, and uploaded it on video or music.

There is endless more of this on only one song. And can they have the same purpose and intention of doing this?

If you want to help the website, but also want to degrade the sound or image:

  • Sound: Replace full song long length to sample length of song, lower quality, or whatever you want to do it.
  • Image: Replace full image to low image resolution, copyright remove ads, watermark, colour to black/white, some/many procent is white on image, or whatever you want to do it.
