I didn't see a thread for this or any mention of it on this board, but apparently this is old news. Metal Blade is reissuing the first three classics by legendary Cirith Ungol! Up for preorder on HRR.

Fuck yes! One of the most underrated heavy metal bands, looking forward to replacing my worn out vinyl.

I wonder can anyone find out what the audio source for these reissues might be or am I just better off trying to find the original pressings. They tend to be expensive and I'm quite happy with the CDs I have.

imo they're the kind of albums that don't sound very good on any format; buy what you like.

I would also be interested in the answer to this

i personally love the clunky production. as far as the source for the re issue who knows, if reels are not stored properly they will be unusable. So honestly your better off spending the extra money on originals if they are using cd masters. compressed signals to vinyl format do not sound john blaze pal.

Really? I got One Foot in Hell for $20 and that was the going rate when I got it six months ago.

I see One Foot in Hell every so often for a reasonable price, the first two I hardly ever see for under $30. I could agree that the production on most Cirith Ungol albums are pretty trashy, although it grows on you after many listens. The servants of chaos compilation is dreadful sounding, yet I keep listening to it, a testament to the songwriting I suppose.

Cirith Ungol rules. I love everything about their material, including the production. I am definitely interested to learn more about these reissues, and what they might sound like. As of right now, I just do not think it would sound 'right' to my ears if things were changed/altered ... I have listened to them so much over the years.

I found Frost, King, and One Foot all on the used market pretty cheap on CD. I'm pretty happy with that and don't see a need to buy again in any format.

If you're not too sold on the format, but the actual music, get the official "Metal Blade" CD reissues, as they sounded stellar in my ears. Idea

They're the ones I have. I never had a complaint about the sound of those CDs but thought that maybe, just maybe, the og LPs sounded different.

I always thought the production was great in a fuzzed-out 70s kind of way!

Will buy these unless they turn out to be totally badly done.
