Thread: Music inspired by Tolkien
As a metal fan, you really can't go wrong with Blind Guardian.
Many of their early songs are based heavily on Lord of The Rings (They have a song called Lord of The Rings) and have a concept album called Nightfall in Middle Earth, which is all about The Silmarillion.
It's fantastic music, a good mix of metal with celtic influances. I was fortunate to see them live in London last week, which was really spectacular. www.blind-guardian.com
