Note: On 17th Oct 2015 they reformed for the Meet and Greet and signing session on the first Frost and Fire Festival.On 8th Oct 2016, Cirith Ungol officially returned to the stage by headlining the Frost and Fire II Festival at the Majestic Ventura Theater.

In short: Cirith Ungol broke up in May 1992. There will probably never be a comeback.

That does however not mean there are no chance of a comeback, even if it would mean for a new album or a one gig only.

✅ Greg Lindstrom is, as most now knows, still active in playing heavy rock music in his new band Falcon with Perry Grayson and Darin McCloskey, where he also plays some old and rare Ungolsongs.

✅ Less known is that Vern Green from the Paradise Lost-lineup is still musical active and plays in various bands. Most notable in the female-fronted rockband Broken Silence. He even highly admires his time in Cirith Ungol. He has recently (Nov 2007) unleashed some really nice live videoclips from The Ventura Theater 1991-show.

✅ Robert Garven is still a Ungol-maniac, even though he hasn't played his drums ever since. He has been offered to play with Falcon, but unfortunately he rejected.

❌ But unfortunately, Rob tells in an interview that singer Tim Baker wasn't interested in Cirith Ungol at the times Servants was released (2001). But things may have changed since then. Gerrit Mutz (Sacred Steel) has been offered to take hand of the vocals, but that he said no, because he could never replace Tim. Another possible replacement would be Perry Grayson, who is also a huge Ungol-maniac.

UPDATE 2010: Tim Baker is still alive, still a metalfan and he still likes Cirith Ungol!

❌ According to an interview with Greg, Michael "Flint" Vujejia has also shown no interest in CU.

❌ Jerry Fogle has unfortunately passed away.

✅ Jimmy Barraza has not lost his interest in the band, and he is still musically active. He has recently uploaded a couple of Cirith Ungol live videos, as documented at The Webpit.

? I don't know anything about the other members state.

Cirith Ungol split up due to frustration about the music business. For more information about the issue, please read any Cirith Ungol-interview. Here are some random quotes when asked about a possible comeback:
The being called Ungol is dead
its resurrection is doubtful.
But heed it's teachings oh faithful
for on these memoratic disks contain
the wisdom of the ages
and by your iron fists
may the horror
of false metal be extinguished.
As you now join the swelling ranks of the Legions of Chaos
together we will drive before us
the cringing herd of False Metal
crush their spineless lackeys
and purge the world of their mutant plague!!!
-Cirith Ungol's mission statement
