The eerie masters of epic metal, return to Greece after 7 years of absence! Hailing from Ventura, California, the legendary Cirith Ungol will headline Up the Hammers festival for the second time in their illustrious history, their first legendary appearance in Up the hammers was released in a live album by Metal Blade Records, spans from 1977 until today and has gifted the metal world with monumental albums like Frost and Fire (1981) and King of the Dead (1984) and many more. Since the last time we had the honor of hosting them, CU has released โ€œForever Black, their first album in almost 30 years, which ended up topping many of the โ€œBest of yearโ€ lists in 2020, and โ€œHalf Past Humanโ€ EP in 2021.

We are thrilled to announce that Night Demon will be headlining UTH Warm up show in 2024! Known for the intensity and energy of their live shows, Night Demon has been making waves in the metal scene since their debut EP in 2012 and they’ve been amongst the front runners of the NWOTHM scene ever since. Their latest album “Outsider”, released in March 2023, is a speed metal barrage of fast-paced riffs and thunderous rhythms, filled with songs that are meant to be played live. The band will perform a special โ€œPartyโ€ set which will include also some of their amazing covers.

Join the Legion live
“And…. In case you didn’t know, We are Cirith Ungol and we’re here one last time.”

That first line of the video from Tim Baker, captions the whole description of this video. The US metal legends Cirith Ungol playing one last time in Greece and UTH Festival on their farewell tour and ultimately laid to rest and be placed in the realms of heavy metal kingdom.

With great honor we present you their iconic song “Join The Legion” live at Gagarin Club. For those of you that you were there and you got to experience their show and for you who missed that, this is a moment we will forever be greatful that got it on video.
