ARC - "War of the Ring" (audio)

Through Sauron's veil

One red eye pierces through the darkened skies
The Nazgul fly through the air
Shadows stain like black sin polluted rain
All are forsaken by fear

Mithril flash
And orc skulls smashed
And bones are dashed to the ground
Within his tower, Sauron unleashes power
No sanctuary to be found

Ring forged in Mordor's fire
Ringwraiths shall find you
Bearer of Sauron's ring
In darkness he shall blind you

Balrog’s breath, Mithrandir's death
But his spirit shall rise
Witch King dies, corrupting where he lies
Light reborn to the skies

Mordor's might, like an ever seething night
Spills like blood from a vein
Free people soon, prepare to meet their doom
Fate tips the balance again

Ring forged in Mordor's fire
Ringwraiths shall find you
Bearer of Sauron's ring
In darkness he shall blind you

Blind you


Οι ARC είναι από εκείνες τις περιπτώσεις των (χιλιάδων) συγκροτημάτων που έδρασαν στην Βρετανία στις αρχές της δεκαετίας του ογδόντα εντασσόμενοι στο μουσικό ρεύμα του NWOBHM. Μπόρεσαν να κυκλοφορήσουν μόνο δύο singles, αν και το αποτύπωμά τους στην heavy metal μυθολογία πρόλαβαν να το αφήσουν. Πρόκειται για το (εμπνευσμένο από Tolkien) τραγούδι "War of the Ring". Φέτος κυκλοφόρησε η συλλογή "Raiders of the Lost Arc", η οποία περιλαμβάνει όλα τα δισκογραφήματα της μπάντας συν μπόλικα καλούδια...
