Heavy Metal Month II – Day 17 – Inspired by Lord of the Rings

Helms Deep

Heavy Metal Month II, Day 17) Song inspired by The Lord of the Rings

I probably should have looked ahead so as not to do Tolkien twice, but what’s done is done. Instead, we’ll go a slightly different route and feature the underappreciated Italian band DoomSword with their song Helms Deep from their self-titled debut. Although slower and certainly less folky in their delivery, I’d go as far to say DoomSword was “battle metal” before Turisas came along, especially on later albums.

In any case, enjoy this, and do be sure to check out the rest of their catalog.
