Yeah, I think this was the story supplied about this band, but I think that
it's been shown to be false, and that the recordings attributed to this band
were really done by British musicians in the early 90s in the krautrock
style. Maybe Nazgul isn't the right name, but there are several bands that
were apparently made up to cash in on the retro-kraut boon.

Ah, I think I was confused on the was the 'troll' thingy (just
before) that I thought was awful...if the Balrog was the 'firebeasty' thing,
that scene was alright.

And Ian Holm was the only really good acting in the thing, I thought.
Interesting that he's the Dreamworker voice!  Great trivia.

Grakkl (FAA), who just picked up Tool's (first?) CD 'Undertow' for $3 and
found it to be rather good as well.
