This album has actually nothing directly to do with Cirith Ungol. Track 6, "Cirith Ungol" is not a cover of the band's song. But it's a homage to the band. An extraction from an interview with Reverend Bizarre:
There’s also a text named ‘Cirith Ungol’ dealing with the saga of the `Lord Of The Rings`: Is this one of your favourite books? In the end of this year there’ll be this movie in cinema: Will you watch it? I personally don’t know actually `cause I really adore the book of Tolkien and I for sure will be disappointed because a film can never come near to the feelings connected with the written saga!
We do like the works of J.R.R.Tolkien, although we are no fanatics in this matter. As a personal note, I conpager the fantasy worlds of Stephen R. Donaldson - especially the saga of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever - much more interesting and rewarding than Tolkien's b/w creations. So, since Tolkien's writings are no holy texts to us, we are not really afraid of the outcome of the forthcoming movie adaptation, either. Still, even though Peter Jackson is a great director, it is true that the story in question can never be captured on film in its entirety. We'll just have to wait and see.
Besides, do you like CIRITH UNGOL, the band?
Yes we truly do! Voted the worst metal band ever, they must be the most underrated band in the entire metal history. It is true that Tim Baker's rather chaotic expression demands a bit from the listener, but hell, the same goes with Scott Reagers of Saint Vitus as well! As a matter of fact, our "Cirith Ungol" started out as a homage to the band, and the Tolkien theme came actually later, through the title. This unbearably slow and colossal 23-minute funeral hymn that serves to end our debut album does not sound at all like the band Cirith Ungol, though!
