does any one here know of "Blind Guardian"? they write and play all sorts of neat songs about The iliad, dragonlance, and....lotr and the silmarillion! it's really cool. i just ordered one of their albums. it's called "Nightfall in Middle Earth", and it has songs called "feanor's curse" and "the eldar". really good lyrics too. i ahven't listened to any of the lotr songs, but "and then there was silence", about the iliad, is really good. so, if any one else likes Blind Guardian, please comment!

I discovered them about a year and half ago, the summer before TTT was released. I really like them, but then again I am a big fan of that type of music. My favorite song of thiers is Lord of the Rings mostly because it was the first one that I heard.

Led Zepplin also was greatly inspired by LotR, which is kinda cool too. Its fun to listen to thier stuff and see how many refences to Tolkien you can find :)

Yup, Blind Guardian kicks ass. Have been listening to them for a long time.

If you like that genre, I'd be glad to send you some mp3s of other similar bands (but not LotR inspired). I'm a huge promoter of lesser-known doom metal. Email me at dark_turtle at yahoo dot com.
