Far Over The Misty Mountains Cold

Just giving a special highlight to one of my favorite Tolkien songs, which is featured in The Hobbit, chapter 1. It summarizes the attack of Smaug on Erebor and the subsequent motivations for the Dwarves to return to the Lonely Mountain. Text can be found here.

Content:
Far Over the Misty Mountains Cold, by Clamavi De Profundis. Extremely epic cover of the song. I linked this way back when I covered the Hobbit, but it’s definitely worth checking out again!
Far Over the Misty Mountains Cold, by Norloth. Nice colorful art, featuring the chorus in Dwarvish runes.
Far Over the Misty Mountains Cold, by Norloth. Same title & artist, different piece. Really cool composition.

Notes: As the classic Dwarven song, I figured I’d give it it’s own day during Dwarf Week. If you find yourself bored today, I’d check out Clamavi De Profundis’s YouTube channel. They have a ton of epic covers of Tolkien songs and more. ~Tom
