Cirith Ungol

One of the great cult LA bands from the mid-eighties, Cirith Ungol forged a unique blend of semi-doom metal, topped off by the unique, raspy vocals of Tim Baker, one of those love-him-or-hate-him singers that provided the band the necessary stamp of originality that carried them throughout their career. Of the four albums that they released, the middle two, King Of The Dead and One Foot In Hell are the best representation of the band, with the debut being slightly less heavy and the last album (Paradise Lost) finding the band a little bit short on new ideas. The band broke up in May of 1992 following the departure of guitarist Jim Barraza. Though never attaining superstar status, they maintained a solid career and their place in metal history is secure.

Recent album: Forever Black, released on April 24, 2020.
