Cirith Gorgor 2.0: reborn, darker, stronger!
From the Past comes the Storm! Cirith Gorgor’s origin and roots go deep back into time, and can be traced back to the beginnings of the Dutch black metal scene. With their debut demo “Mystic Legends” Cirith Gorgor gets noticed, and soon legendary French label Osmose Productions makes a deal with these Dutch devil worshippers. Cirith Gorgor become the name in the quickly rising Dutch Black Metal scene. In those earlier years of Cirith Gorgor the band releases two classics, but by the beginning of the 21st century a conscious return to the underground starts to make them less visible.
During those years the Cirith Gorgor signature remains true to the black metal stamp of the highest quality, with several releases keeping the band alive and staying on their darkened path. Live shows are a part of keeping the black flame burning.
So far, so good… through all these years Hammerheart Records kept either in touch or kept listening to the releases Cirith Gorgor did. Then comes Spring 2015… Hammerheart Records gets to hear the first new, raw recordings for Cirith Gorgor’s “Visions of Exalted Lucifer”… This is a blast, this is darkness put to audio form! Respect Cirith Gorgor’s legacy & past, but keep a fresh mind, Cirith Gorgor A.D. 2016 is all together an entity of a different kind! Cirith Gorgor is the Phoenix, risen and reborn from its proud ashes of the past, reborn in a much stronger form, reborn to take all true followers of the dark black metal cult by ultimate surprise!
This new mini album contains unreleased songs from the “Visions Of Exalted Lucifer” sessions.
