Epic Fantasy Metal

#1 Post by Digga D! » Mon Oct 27, 2008 9:18 pm

Ok, I don't know if any of you are into metal, but a cool point of interest is that there are some sweet Metal Songs that are totally gaming/nerd fused, but still rule. I think these guys are really really cool. If you don't like Iron Maiden Sounding metal, you will probably hate 'em.
First is 3 inches of blood. These guys are insane. All of their songs are mini-dungeons and dragons adventures in a song. Complete with "kill the orcs", "The great hall of feasting" and "the forest king. " Second is Blind Guardian" that have an entire album written about The SIlmerillion, but songs "The once and future king," "the lord of the Rings," and Valahalla. They are a little more like Queen and Iron Maiden.

Here's 2 of favorite vids:

The Goat rider's hoard:

Blind Guardian: This song is about Asgillioth eating Middle Earth and shrowding it in darkness. Someone put the audio to A Final Fantasy movie. Makes it really cool!

Hope you like 'em! Oh yeah, I can't embed the video like Skittle can. I'm like a lame skittle brau aren't I?
