"Frost Blue/Fire Orange" vinyl version includes the 4-CD set. "Green Marble" version involves the vinyl only (no CD set).
In 1981, a little-known visionary quartet known as Cirith Ungol released their self-financed debut, "Frost and Fire", via their own Liquid Flames Records imprint. In that unassuming moment, the course of heavy metal history changed forever. You see, the world had never experienced a sound quite like "Frost and Fire" before. It was mystical and obscure, epic and expansive, but most of all bone-crushingly heavy, dark and doom-laden. For all its primitive and primordial qualities, "Frost and Fire" is also timeless, as earthshaking tracks like "I'm Alive" and the thunderous title cut remain cornerstones of the Cirith Ungol canon to this day. In the intervening decades, legions of fans worldwide have been enraptured by Cirith Ungol's bewitching spell and have fallen under the long shadow cast by these masters of the dark arts. Now, Cirith Ungol invites fans to ride the black machine for a fond look back at "Frost and Fire" in honor of its 40th anniversary.
