This week I speak to Robert Garven from doom and power metal pioneers Cirith Ungol. Rob talks about his early fandom of Thin Lizzy, buying import records as a teenager, spending pocket money on pot and corn burritos, meeting Rush at the Whisky A Go Go, pay-to-play gigs, the artwork of Michael Whelan, the influence of Lord of the Rings, being too heavy for heavy metal radio,
and so much more, in this career-spanning chat. Rob was an absolute pleasure to speak to and has an abundance of stories from the early days of Cirith Ungol right up to their triumphant return to the stage in 2016.
This week's episode of Feckin' Metal has arrived, featuring a career-spanning chat with @CirithU drummer Robert Garven. This episode is filled with stories from one of the pioneers of doom and power metal. A truly fascinating interview. Enjoy!https://t.co/AwwcJNGgVd
