    Metal band Cirith Ungol have announced their first album in 29 years, Forever Black, with the new song, “Legions Arise.”

    The song features Tim Baker howling vocals over furious guitar riffs and crashing drums. “You never lost hope, you never have strayed / Arise now my children, arise from the grave / We lead not the weak, they won’t answer the call / As chaos descends, false metal will fall,” Baker sings,

    “Legions Arise” is the first taste of Forever Black, the band’s follow-up to 1991’s Paradise Lost. They last released in music in 2018 with the non-album single “Witch’s Game” for animated film, Planet of Doom.

    Forever Black arrives April 24 via Metal Blade Records. Listen to “Legions Arise” below:
