CIRITH UNGOL “ONE FOOT IN HELL” – Awesome Album Covers Don’t Make You The Next Iron Maiden!

MBR 1062 Cirith Ungle One Foot In Hell

Cirith Ungol A Metal Band That Could Have Been Big: Why Didn’t They Remain Obscure?

Cirith Ungol was lucky and hailed Ventura, California which was home to Metal Blade Records in 1988. If you’re like me, you might remember the old days, (before the Internet) when you made decisions about what albums you were going to buy by the artwork. That is how I accidentally bought a lot of Molly Hatchet and Nazareth albums.

Whoops!

Such is the case with Cirith Ungol. Now that I listen to it, it’s actually pretty good. At the time, I only like really heavy thrash or black metal bands. Hands the recent resurgence in the popularity of this Cirith Ungol! Listen for yourself, but first for a few facts.

Cirth Ungol Where Are They Now?

  • The band broke up in 1992, citing frustrations with their record label.
  • In 2001, Metal Blade released in “Germany Servants of Chaos”, a compilation of unreleased demos and live songs.
  • Founding guitarist Jerry Fogle died from liver failure on August 20, 1998. RIP
  • Lindstrom now plays with Falcon, who perform some Cirith Ungol songs

Grim Reaper: Where Are They Now?

  • In a recent interview Steve Grimmett said, “”We have a date of February 19, 2019, (original date was in October 2018) we had to move the date forward because we could not deliver the album on time and neither could the record label. February 19 will gives us a little bit more time to get things done. We have recorded all the guitars, all the drums I have started the vocals, when we get back from the tour I will be doing vocals and bass. it should be done in the next month.””
  • Guitarist Nick Bowcott is a rep for Marshall Amps.
  • Nick Bowcott spoke at Jeff Hannaman’s funeral.
  • Just having the word “hell” in an album title tied Grim Reaper up in lawsuits with their label from 1987 to 1988.
  • Steve Grimmett was in thrash metal band Onslaught. Strangely enough, Onslaught’s first album was “Power From Hell“.
  • The band broke up in 2008.
  • The band re-formed and started work on a new studio album tentatively titled “From Hell” (not joking)
  • In 2017, after collapsing at a show from a leg infection, Steve Grimmett went into surgery. As a result, he had to have a potion of his leg aputated.
