I remember when I was a teen and we were all excited about the coming movie The Fellowship Of The Ring, one of our first questions was: “What’s the soundtrack gonna be like? There gotta be Blind Guardian, Rhapsody and the like”.
But we were naive. That’s not how Hollywood (a.k.a. Movie Industry) works, right?
There was a crazy rumor that Rage Against The Machine would sign the soundtrack! What??? We thought: “They gotta nothing to do with it” And then along came Enya. I might say it was kind of a good choice. Emphasis on KIND OF. I like Enya, she’s good, she sings in several different languages, she’s got a good soothing voice. But there, it’s the problem! It’s too calm! What about the metal? What about the epic metal melodies which every single Tolkien/Fantasy/RPG/Metal fan loves?
……By the way….I wonder: How many Tolkien Fans love Metal music? I got really curious! I think I need to ask YOU! Please answer and help me with the stats:
That’s something the wicked Big Movie Industry can’t get sometimes. They prey the masses but fail on minor details. To correct (in my opinion) the Lord Of The Rings soundtrack, I’d like to include here and share with you all, this amazingly put together video containing scenes from the movies (telling the whole story chronologically) and with a wondrous soundtrack! Erutulco indicated me and I jizz in my pants. “That’s the vision, that’s the true soundtrack of Lord Of The Rings”
I got shivers and I got goosebumps, delightfully edited!
