|Cirith Ungol chronology|
Paradise Lost is the final Cirith Ungol LP. It was released in 1991 on Restless Records and re-released as a bootleg several times. The band broke up in 1992 over unresolved issues with their new record label.
According to band member Robert Garven:
Restless Records did nothing for the band in the way of promotion or touring. They had me contact Roadrunner Records in Europe (who released our first 2 records) to try to convince them to release Paradise Lost in Europe. The owner, I think was named Cess Wessels or something, refused to release it saying that it was outdated. It is funny as it is the CD that everyone wants and it is still unavailable! I have tried on several occasions to get PL re-released but with no luck. Several companies were very interested in re-releasing it, however Restless Records would never return their phone calls or e-mail.
