>Cirith Ungol proudly unleashes their first studio recording since “Paradise Lost” in 1991!
Witch’s Game was forged for the upcoming animated movie The Planet of Doom. The 12” vinyl single also features a live version of their classic song Doomed Planet as the b-side, taken from their performance at Germany’s Hammer of Doom festival in 2017. The single also features original artwork from the band’s longtime collaborator Michael Whelan
Since their return to the stages of this world in 2016 at the “Frost & Fire” festival in Ventura, CA, Cirith Ungol has also played many successful festival shows in Europe. Due to the incredible demand and enthusiastic reactions from the fans, Cirith Ungol has decided to start writing and rehearsing a new song. The band now proudly unleashes their first studio recording since Paradise Lost in 1991!
The band comments: “‘Witch’s Game’ was forged for the upcoming animated movie ‘Planet of Doom’. Since we reunited in 2015, there was always a question if we would release new material. It was always on the top of our minds, and when approached to write a song that would be featured in this amazing movie, we agreed. We had already been working on songs for our 5th studio album and this was a perfect opportunity to dip our hooves back in the lake of fire! We are all very excited about the band’s future and hope you like this sampling of what we have been brewing in our secret lair!”

Metal Hammer Italy: Have you ever thought of recording a proper movie soundtrack?
If we were still together we would be very interested. I keep thinking that some movie producer will contact us about using our music in a soundtrack but so far the only movie, that I know of that has used our music, is the slasher or agent helps get the producers interested, and I can’t see that happening with us.
– Robert Garven
This is a question from 1999, that is 19 years ago(!). In 2018 there is a cartoon movie and it’s called The Planet Of Doom.
