Nightfall in Middle-Earth
I don't give a shit who you are, or what you say, Lord of the Rings is fucking epic. And when you think about it, so are German power metal legends Blind Guardian. Hence, legends.
It seems only natural to me that two legendary things should come together and be more epic than can be processed in an entire human lifetime, which is why I believe Blind Guardian declined the offer to be included on the Lord of the Rings official soundtrack. Because it would have been way too epic for anyone to tolerate within their mortal (unlike our beloved Guardians') lifespan.
I wonder if declining actually made them more legendary...
If they had been included on the LOTR soundtrack, people would have drilled holes in their skulls and tried to scoop out gray matter in order to give their brains some space with which to comprehend the epicness of it all.
And that would have been bad because people would have died. And more people dying means less people buying records and attending shows. At the end of it all, if Blind Guardian were to stop making money and in turn music, it would result in a metal catastrophe not even the Mayans could predict.
Now hurry up and release your shit, assholes.
