For what it's worth, I saw them at F&F last year and they were amazing! Hoping to catch them again at Defenders.

Rob sent me an email a few days ago, all things are going smoothly but they are playing very few shows at the moment. He mentioned that the new King of the Dead issue will be well worth picking up

Here's the Metal Blade PR blurb for that upcoming 'ultimate edition' of 'King Of The Dead' which Northwinds mentioned:

In conjunction with Cirith Ungol‘s first ever live show on European soil at the Keep It True festival in Lauda-Konigshofen, Germany, Metal Blade Records will release the Ultimate Edition of Cirith Ungol‘s King Of The Dead album on the weekend of the fest, April 28th!
The King Of The Dead – Ultimate Edition digipak CD features a full re-mastering by Patrick W. Engel at Temple Of Disharmony, five bonus tracks, expanded packaging and a bonus-DVD! The King Of The Dead – Ultimate Edition LP will be released as part of the Metal Blade Originals series; featuring 400 g spine sleeves, a 12-page booklet and an A1 sized poster, the vinyl was also mastered and fully restored by Patrick W. Engel in January 2017. This version reflects the original sound of the 1st vinyl pressing, released on Enigma in 1984!

But it's too much fun trying to figure out why this band that's clearly not Metal is held in such high regards by those still digging into this music 8)

Just got back from Keep It True, and let me just say this. Tim Baker is a GOD. Over and out.

Oh doG YES. What an amazing front man/Master Of Ceremonies! A CU reunion couldn't possible have been more perfect than this. One of the finest headline-shows at KIT so far. It's so... hm.. COMFY(!) that some things that should be great really are sometimes and just don't disappoints you.

This actually finishes my concert bucket list. There are no other bands I feel I absolutely have to see live. While I feel blessed to have been able to go to hundreds of concerts and catch all my favourite acts, some of which I thought I'd never get the opportunity to see (CU being one of them), there's a growing emptiness inside of me. Like it's the end of an era somehow.

Midlife crisis coming up?

I understand that feeling.

Seen the youtube videos. Very surprised that Tim Baker's voice hasn't aged at all because Cirith Ungol wouldn't be nearly the same without his screeching.

For curiosities sake, did they play anything from "Paradise Lost"?
