AllMusic Review by

Reissued by Metal Blade after being out of print for a decade, fans can get a window into the creative process of early metal pioneers Cirith Ungol on the rarities compilation Servants of Chaos. Largely recorded before the metal world became the hyper-classified juggernaut of nomenclature that it is today, the compilation shows the band discovering new territory at the edges of prog rock and blues alongside bands like Blue Öyster Cult and Black Sabbath. Whether you're a fan of the band, or just wanting to look into the history of heavy metal, Servants of Chaos is filled with interesting artifacts from heavy metal's earlier, more elemental years.
