Originally released on Halloween 1981, CIRITH UNGOL are celebrating the 40th anniversary of their landmark album, Frost And Fire, with special, multi-format re-issue packages set for release on December 17th, 2021. Pre-Orders are available today at: metalblade.com/cirithungol

In 1981, CIRITH UNGOL, a little-known visionary quartet in Ventura, CA, released their debut album, Frost And Fire, via their own Liquid Flames Records imprint. In that unassuming moment, the course of heavy metal history changed forever. Forty years on, legions of fans worldwide have been enraptured by these masters of the dark arts, and now CIRITH UNGOL invites fans to ride the black machine for a fond look back at the epic album Frost And Fire.

Frost And Fire will be available in an array of formats - 2 CD digibook with 20-page booklet, all digital platforms, and 2 LP with 8-page vinyl booklet. All of these editions include both the 40th anniversary remix of the album and the album remastered from the original analog tapes. US vinyl variants will be available in 2 (two) colors - leaf green marbled, and Midnight blue marbled. European versions will have 5 (five) variants: 180g black, camouflage green marbled, light grey marbled, golden yellow marbled, and silver.

Culled from the CIRITH UNGOL's private archives, a special limited-edition hardbound 50-page book will also be available - packed with rare photos, flyers and memorabilia, as well as detailed liner notes and essays by the band. This artbook will be packaged with 4 CDs and 2 LPs (including all material from the regular editions), plus 2 additional CDs containing 14 demos of the album tracks and bonus content - interview, radio drops, answering machine tapes, phone calls.
