For the first time in history world renowned Heavy Metal Legends CIRITH UNGOL will make their debut in Australia for the first and last time in May/June 2024!
Supported by and introducing US heavy metal trio NIGHT DEMON, the pair will hit Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne for one of the most paramount moments in Australian heavy metal history.
Ventura Californias ‘Cirith Ungol’ formed in the 70’s, forging their own brand of hard/progressive rock, only one year after Black Sabbath’s debut birthed the genre.
Considered an early player in both doom and power metal, the band’s obsession with Tolkienic sword-and-sorcery blazed a trail for much of metal as it’s known today.
After a 25 year hiatus, the band reformed in 2016, taking heavy metal by the throat re-releasing past albums and a new album in 2020 which would gain world-wide attention and respect, instantly signing to Metal Blade Records.
2023 saw the band release their final album Dark parade with a solid line up of players featuring the one and only Tim Baker (Vocals) along with some original and new members of the band including Jim Barraza (Guitars), Robert Garven (Drums), Greg Lindstrom (Guitars) and Jarvis Leatherby (Bass).
