NIGHT DEMON HEAVY METAL PODCAST

This week’s episode is part 1 of the Cirith Ungol Story. All successful bands stand on the shoulders of giants. In Night Demon’s case, the “giants” in question include Cirith Ungol, the Ventura, CA heavy metal pioneers whose history dates back to 1972. You’ll hear the ND guys talk about what makes Cirith Ungol unique, how they became aware of Cirith Ungol, and how the band was perceived in their hometown during Jarvis’s formative musical years. Members of Cirith Ungol will walk you through the story of their formation, early gigs, struggles to find a solid footing in the industry, reflections on their 1980s albums, and appearance on the first Metal Massacre compilation. Much more to come next week …
