Re: Blind Guardian's Twilight Orchestra - "Legacy of the Dark Lands" (The Orchestral Project)

Yes, it was meant to be their Shire theme back when the first orchestral songs were still Tolkien-based. "This Storm" was titled "Gondor", "In The Underworld" was Sauron's theme, and "Treason" was inspired (at least partially) by the character of Fangorn. I guess that makes sense, This Storm makes ...

Pretty sure Hansi was trolling or something. These guys are metalheads first and foremost, and the day they abandon their heavy roots completely is the day when Blind Guardian is done.
