From Ringer Spy Mongvar
Just to tell you about Blind Guardian The band has been composing a full album based on The Lord of the Rings for a long time now. It is an orchestral album with some folk pieces and not much metal. They already have some songs done (5 in the truth)
A tape with these songs was recently sent to Peter Jackson with a request for the soundtrack.
How much of this is true? It remains to be seen.
