Fan made tribute custom clip that I made to one of best sequences of the John Ronald Ruel Tolkien works, the bloody Battle at Helm's Deep. This video put together the first Lord Of The Rings movie (made in 1978, directed by Ralph Bakshi and produced by Saul Zaents) and a metal song about this battle.
The main characters on the battle are on the video (such as Gandalf, Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas, Théoden, the Rohirrim, the uruk-hai orcs, Sarumam, Gríma worn tongue etc), but I also included some other important events and characters of the animated film (Boromir, Smeágol Gollum, Rivendall, Galadriel and Lothlórien, the four hobbits - Frodo, Sam, Merry and Pippin, Gandalf aganist the Morgoth's Balrog, Moria, Treebeard etc...).
::: The Movie :::
The LOTR animated movie covers the first two original Tolkien book's ("The Fellowship of the Ring" and the "Two Towers"), a second movie ("The Return of The King") was, unfortunelly, never made. Bakshi movie is also remebered its extensive use of rotoscoping.This film is cited as an influence on Peter Jackson's LOTR triology.
I chose this one to do the video becuase I belive it goes better with a straight forward metal song and this movie are more like the original books (but still Tom Bombadil is missed).
The director Ralph Bakshi also did another fantastic sci-fi fantasy cult animation movie called Fire and Ice (with the ilustrator of Conan, Frank Franzetta).
::: The Music :::
About the eigths band Attacker, if you ilke oldschool metal such as Anvil, Accept, Jag Panzer, Helstar, Omen, Savage Grace etc I'm sure you'll like it. Battle At Helm's Deep was their first (and awesome) LP, released by Metal Blade records in 1985 and re-released by Sentinel Steel records in 1999.
Bob Mitchell (Sleepy hollow, solo artist) - vocals Pat Marinelli - guitar Jim Mooney (Sleepy Hollow) - guitar Lou Ciarllo (Hades, Jersey Dogs) - bass guitar Mike Sabatini (Jersey Dogs) - drums.
The band also released the record "The Second Coming" (1988) then slip up. After their come they released Soul Taker (2003) and The Unknown (2006).
According to the site Metal Encyclopedia, guitarrist Jim Mooney, unfortenelly, passed away in 2000.
Ciarlo and Sabatini released one EP called "Don't Worry... Get Angry" (1989) and an LP "Thrash Ranch" (1990) with their band Jersey Dogs.
Singer Bob Mitchell released one record (s/t) with his band Sleepy Hollow in 1990. He also played on a band called Vyndykator before back to Attacker and form his own solo act, The Bob Mitchell Band.
