My thought about Cirith Ungol
  • I would like to hear Rock โ€™nโ€™ Roll Hooker,ย Radiation Blues,ย Flesh Dart, Crack of Dawn,ย Shelobs Lair (with Neil Beattie), Animal Passion, Worse Things Waiting, Tight Teen (previous song of Tight Teen/Bad Scene), Bad Scene (later song of Tight Teen/Bad Scene), etc. I know there is previously vocal by Neil Beattie on We Know Youโ€™re Out There, but I would like to hear even more the Neil Beattie from the 1970’s. Release it on Servants of Chaos extensive edition, or part 2, or new box set.
  • If they have not recorded the songs or they lost it somewhere, they can record the songs again. And release it on Half Past Human extensive edition, or part 2, or new box set.
  • I would like to hear A Little Fire, What Does It Take, Edge Of A Knife, Better Off Dead, Maybe Thatโ€™s Why with or without vocal, The Troll, Go It Alone, etc on live. The band are skipped over these, unfortunately.
  • I wish there was a Flint, Neil,ย Joe, Rob, Vern, Michael coming to play guest live songs and/or studio songs. Is there even more additional members or sessions?
  • Cirith Ungol – movie or a documentay. Like Anvil – The Story Of Anvil (2008), Iron Maiden – Flight 666 (2009), Queen – Bohemian Rhapsody (2019) etc.
  • Some of the lyrics.
  • Everything they have made in chronological order.

      I have them on CD already except Servants. I’d buy them all again if they were packaged in the way suggested. Heck, I’d buy Servants if it were simply made available again for a reasonable price.
      Does the band have the original masters? They probably don’t in the case of all releases as I think they signed away all rights to Paradise at least.
      If they can get them then perhaps they could re-master them the way they see fit but that’s gonna cost coin.
      Personally, I think they all sound pretty good and I’ve grown crotchety in my old age so change isn’t always for the better IMO, especially if the added touches don’t exist. I think there were some quotes about the best takes of Tim’s vocals being actually trashed on the floor in the Paradise sessions. If those best takes don’t exist anymore then I say let sleeping dogs lie.
      Now, that isn’t to say I wouldn’t buy any re-release as long as I know the artists themselves receive just compensation. The fellas in this band were way more creative than most bands and they deserve something more than an attaboy for that.
      I’m just a fan though and I know that building a fan base is difficult so like I said I’d buy Servants if it were re-released but I’m not sticking money in anyone’s bread jar unless the band sees some of that.

      My wishes for the re-releases: Big colour booklets in all albums with liner notes, rare pics, etc
      Frost and Fire
      CD1: Frost and Fire original album
      CD2: Orange Album, Demo 1979 and other old tracks.
      King of the Dead
      CD1: King of the Dead original album
      CD2: live shows, out-takes, etc
      One Foot in Hell
      CD1: One Foot in Hell original album
      CD2: One Foot in Hell original mix (the band didn’t like the final production/mix), + live, out-takes, etc
      Paradise Lost
      CD1: Paradise Lost original album
      CD2: Paradise Lost, original production (the band didn’t like the final production), live, out-takes, etc
      Servants of Chaos
      CD1&2: Servants original album</p>
      CD3: more raritites. I’d prefer a DVD to be a separate release.
      Who are the ones ending up buying these re-releases? Is it Metal Blade Records? No! So please tell them what you want before they are pressed!

      I really wish the re-releases will be Deluxe Editions and cover all five albums, including Paradise and Servants, and that they will have a big upgrade with big booklets and bonus discs. Just plain repressings are not very interesting, except for Servants which is out of print.
      Anyone else who agrees or have special wishes for the re-releases, please demand before it’s too late!

      It would be very exciting to find out the entire Cirith Ungol back catalog
      was going to be re-released as deluxe edition Cd’s with bonus material included.
      Each should come with an up-dated booklet with rare photos and liner notes from
      the band members.</p>
      <p>It’s an absolute crime for these brilliant recordings to remain out of print.
      These incredible musicians were robbed by the very industry they dreamed would
      help elevate them to fame and fortune the first time around. Lets give this
      incredible band what it deserves by releasing these incredible recordings with
      all the grandeur they rightfully deserve. There is a whole new generation of
      heavy music fans that need to hear the majesty that is/was the mighty Cirith
