On October 25, CIRITH UNGOL will release their new live album/DVD, I’m Alive, via Metal Blade Records. Capturing CIRITH UNGOL at the peak of their darkened, mystical powers before a rapturous crowd at the Up the Hammers festival in Athens, Greece, this recording showcases the magic and might of the band onstage. It’s accompanied by additional performances recorded at the Hammer of Doom (2017) and Rock Hard Festivals (2018) in Germany. For this monumental release, a special in-depth documentary spanning 2 hours in length was recorded, which includes exclusive interviews about the history and legacy of the band, as told by the current and original members.
For a preview of I’m Alive, a video for “Join The Legion” (live at Up The Hammers Fest) can be seen below:
Once again, acclaimed fantasy artist Michael Whelan (whose images adorn each cover of CIRITH UNGOL‘s four studio albums) has created the perfect visual accompaniment for the musical content. It’s only fitting as Whelan’s breathtaking artwork is inextricably intertwined with the music and mythology of Cirith Ungol in the hearts and imaginations of metalheads worldwide.
