Howard Shore Lyrics


Mettanna
Irkat-lukhud ma
katabrikihu
Ulfat-atam ma
tanakhi uduhu
bin-nât aznân tarsisi

Bazar udu agânî-furkhîn
Gurd!
Ma nîd sakhu!
Ma satf unkhai!
Atkât zatagrafizu
Zatablugi sulluzu

Mettanna
Nárendur!
An mauya mahtie.
Mettanna!

ENGLISH:
'No shaft of light
Can breach it
No breath of air
Comes from it
Only an endless dark rises

Deep from the beginnings
Of the world.
Have fear.
Do not look down
Nor step too close
The silence will take you.
It will swallow you whole.'

Howard Shore deserves SO much more recognition for his LOTR soundtracks. They're amazing!

Gold Wolf

Your falling head first into an endless chasm while fighting a giant flaming demon! Now that's a Badass Wizard! 😎🗡
The music in these Lord Of The Rings Movies are just fantastic!

Martín Costantini

greatest opening secuence!

Will Alexander

Yeah Helms Deeps is great and all but my Dad and I saw this movie thrice in theaters just for this opening scene.

JorgeMoreno3DArtist

The visual effects on this scene are so badass at this time... The immersive feeling in theaters was AWESOME

Prince Pieri

I thought Got soundtrack was epic. Mr shore checked me 🖼

Cornelius Maze-Eye

Does anyone here feel that the opening scene of Towers almost encapsulates the mythos of the Arc Angel Gabriel battle with Lucifer as he is cast out of Heaven?

Rinbloch

Its similar.
Gandalf recognizes The balrog as a servent of Melkore. A Maiar as he is only fallen to darkness and twisted by Melkore.
His duty in the eternal fight for good and evil takes president and he fights the demon, as they are eternal enemies.

The balrog would be equal with Gandalf if he weren't enchanted by his dark lord for power (making hin stronger) But Gandalf is equipped with Narya an elven ring of power, granting in him unwavering hope and willpower. Making them equal.

As they are technically brothers they fittingly kill each other in what may be the only time in the third age or the previous that beings created outside the worlds beginning fought each other in true combat.

BEST OPENING AFTER THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING 😍🤩
