Year 1:

Today marks the second annual Cirith Ungol Day, declared by the city of Ventura, honoring and recognizing our musical contribution to heavy metal. We had a killer show two nights ago at Frost and Fire, out here. Thanks to all who traveled from far and wide to take part, and thank you to the city of Ventura for this great honor.



Very rare Cirith Ungol Day button.  Given out by the City of Ventura, California – commemorating Cirith Ungol’s contributions to the music scene.

Officially the City of San Buenaventura, California, USA – short of Ventura (San Buena ventura). Mission San Buenaventura is a Spanish mission founded by the Franciscans in present-day Ventura, California. Founded on (31 Mar 1782), it was the ninth Spanish mission established in California and the last to be established by Father Junípero Serra. The mission was named after Saint Bonaventure (born 1221, died 15 Jul 1274), a 13th century Franciscan saint and Doctor of the Church. The downer logo has the Mission San Buenaventura. The poinsettia is the city flower, the bear and star represents California and obviously the ladies arm is broken (Rob).

See San Buenaventura (Ventura) as the city with beaches, films, books, historical arts, concerts m.m.

I’d have to say receiving a proclamation from the Mayor of San Buenaventura, CA. on October 10, 2016. Congratulating and recognizing Cirith Ungol for our “Electrifying talent, Celebration of our reunion and best wishes in future endeavors”.

But in early October of 2016, the impossible became reality. With the banner of Ungol proudly unfurled; the original prophets of American Metal Magick took the stage at Ventura’s Majestic Theater, playing to a sold out crowd of 900. Their performance laid to waste any worries of atrophied skills, and it was apparent the group had more in mind than a one-off. The Monday after the fest, when Ventura picked up the smoldering pieces of itself, the Mayor officially named October 10th “Cirith Ungol Day.”
