King of the Dead is the second album by the American heavy metal band Cirith Ungol. It was self-produced by the band and released in July 1984 on Enigma Records. It was re-released in September 1999 on Metal Blade Records. Band member Robert Garven declared in an interview: "King of the Dead was our best album, the reason was that we had total control over it. Every album could have been this good if we could have exercised complete control over its production and other things.
Thunder howls, The King will rise again The time has come, to pay for all your sins Silence shattered by his gasping cries His savage touch will end your world of lies. Who has dared to desecrate his crypt Shall soon be hanging lifeless in his grip Who has dared to stalk him in the gloom For he has freshly risen from the tomb. Crown upon his head King of the Dead. The sword descends, the blood shall fall like rain Its rising tide will cleanse your world of pain His grip will rob the living of their breath For as he ruled in life, he rules in death.

King of the Dead, Cirith Ungol's second album, is actually something of a step backwards from Frost and Fire; the production sounds a little muddier, the song structures less focused, and the hooks less apparent. Hooks," of course, refers mainly to the guitar riffs, because vocalist Tim Baker still hardly ever steps out of his shrill sing-speak delivery, which listeners generally find either deliciously evil or overdone and irritatingly silly.
Yes, "Cirith Ungol" is technically the album ender, but it feels completely out of place. It's a pretty significant step down from the rest of the album in both complexity and quality. Considering we produced, self recorded and paid for the entire project and that we were one of if not the first independent band to put out their own album during the wave of indie productions during that time, I think F&F and KOTD is a mandatory listen. I am proud that we are mentioned in the same breath as bands that were epic and hope you all appreciate what we were trying to acomplish at a time when only big label bands had any chance of distribution or airplay.
