First Age Week: Heavy Metal
To finish out First Age week, got another special album – Nightfall in Middle Earth by Blind Guardian! Surprisingly (or maybe unsurprisingly I’m not sure) there’s quite a bit of Tolkien-inspired heavy metal out there. To be fair, I haven’t listened to much of it, but from what I hear this album is one of the most well-known of the genre. This albums brings you on an intense hour-long journey through the Silmarillion… with lots more guitar solos than the book.
