    Just last night I was at a Blind Guardian concert (which was absolutely epic I still have chills from singing the bards song in the front row inches away from hansi!) After the show I got to thinking what is it about Metal that lends itself so well to fantasy and vice versa? Maybe i just havent heard of a different genre belting out the works of tolkien, but it just seems to fit perfectly, like tolkien is writing all the good metal for these bands from beyond the grave.

    And fantasy isnt a theme only found in a few lesser known metal bands its common in some of the largest metal bands, Zeppelin for example eludes a bunch to the LOTR series.
