Does anyone listen to music inspired by or named after Tolkiens work? Especially metal and prog. Whether good or just funny.

Here are some to start you off,
Darkthrone
Burzum (Feat Count Grishnakh)
Ephel Duath
Blind Guardian (Nightfall in Middle Earth)
Rush (Rivendell)
Dagorlad

Have you heard the concept album 'Nightfall in Middle Earth' about Morgoth and the Silmarils?

The mighty LED ZEPPELIN... *MOSH!* :superscared: :superscared: :superscared:

Immigrants Song ..LED ZEP III

Black Mountain Mist... practically all the lyrics are fastooned from the Tolkien influence, Plant and Page big LOTR fans as well as "other" things (better not mention on a "family" site, eh?)

For those born post 1985, ask your dad or your dad's dad!
:thumbup:

Oh and Any Prog ROCK bands like Hawkwind (Moorcock rather than Tolkien), Jethro Tull etc...

I've only listened to some of their songs from 'Nightfall in Middle-earth'... that's why I said I like them in the first place! hehe
