Black Metal from the Netherlands. Their first album from 1999.
Released on Osmose Productions in 1999, Cirith Gorgor's debut album “Onwards to the Spectral Defile” hit the black metal scene like a bomb. Haunting melodies and sweeping guitar solos supported by furious yet sophisticated black metal immediately set new standards in epic black metal. The high-quality production as well as their characteristically uncompromising attitude ensured that the name Cirith Gorgor was on everybody's lips in those days. As a consequence the album has sold out years ago and has been in full demand ever since. Now the long wait is finally over and the time has arrived for a proper re-release on both CD and LP format. Including the original Kris Verwimp cover artwork (in its originally intended color) supported by a completely new design this is a release which shall stand the test of time evermore. All hail Cirith Gorgor!
