Cirith Ungol proudly unleashes their first studio recording since “Paradise Lost” in 1991!
Witch’s Game was forged for the upcoming animated movie The Planet of Doom. The 12” vinyl single also features a live version of their classic song Doomed Planet as the b-side, taken from their performance at Germany's Hammer of Doom festival in 2017. The single also features original artwork from the band's longtime collaborator Michael Whelan

lyrics

Witch’s Game

Deep within the sacred mountain, past the death and ancient stones. 
Sit before the evil Eydis, as she begins to roll the bones.

Trapped within the Witch's Game, forced to live her wicked dream.
She plays the card of the warrior, as you hear the fallen scream.

Ride into the battle, death my willing slave.
Ride into the battle, begin the Witch's Game.

Oh what can this be, deaths harem calling for me.
Can this much pleasure, be this much pain, or am I finally going insane? 

All is shattered, a crashing from above, as our senses melt away. 
The Witch continues with her evil, another roll, another card, another play.

Now the Witch has played the card, a pack of demons, yellow eyes agleam. 
Just one way to end this nightmare, take a step inside the dream.

Ride into the battle, death my only name
Ride into the battle, play the Witch's Game

Our last vision now beneath the sea, where the scorned black idols lie.
Card of death and now the dragon strikes, the ancient sword soon by our side.

Now we’re heading from the horror, and our eyes are filled with flame.
Standing strong and undefeated, can we escape the Witch's Game. 

Ride into the battle, death my willing slave.
Ride into the battle, begin the Witches Game.

Ride into the battle, death my only name
Ride into the battle, play the Witches Game
