Epic Tales

Around a year and a half ago, Umlaut created what I consider to be perhaps the greatest Mix (tape or CD) of my Music Geek career: EPIC TALES!

  1. The Verse of The Rings - J.R.R. Tolkien (1952)
  2. Kill The King - Rainbow (1978)
  3. "Hell" from Gladiator
  4. Iron Fist - Motörhead (1982)
  5. "Dawn" from Excalibur
  6. Die By The Sword - Slayer (1983)
  7. "Never Late" from The Fellowship of The Ring ("FOTR")
  8. The Wizard - Black Sabbath (1970)
  9. "Ride Out" from The Two Towers
  10. Power & The Glory - Saxon (1983)
  11. "Arise Riders" from The Return Of The King ("ROTK")
  12. The Trooper - Iron Maiden (1983)
  13. "Hail" from ROTK
  14. Glory Hunter - Armored Saint(1984)
  15. "Pledge" from FOTR
  16. Kings And Queens - Aerosmith (1977)
  17. "What Is Best" from Conan The Barbarian ("Conan")
  18. Freya - The Sword (2006)
  19. "English" from Braveheart
  20. Immigrant Song - Led Zeppelin (1970)
  21. "Steel" from Conan
  22. Swords & Tequila - Riot (1981)
  23. "Lancelot Love" from Excalibur
  24. Forever My Queen - Pentagram (1973)
  25. "They Shall Drown" from Conan
  26. The Prince - Metallica (1988)
  27. "Revenge" from Conan
  28. Dark Avenger - Manowar with Orson Wells (1982)
  29. "The End" from ROTK
  30. A Farewell To Kings - Rush (Live 1978)
Obviously Epic Tales combines the things that shaped me most in my Salad Days: Classic Heavy Metal / Rock and Swords 'N Sorcery movies. Until now only a chosen few have heard this compilation... but now, thanks to modern technology, the Umlaut Nation can be inspired by it.

Enjoy... and understand that it's not hard to be epic in your own life... all you need is a swift steed, a sharp sword, and a stout heart.. and the ability to live in a retarded state of adulthood.

To be played at maximum volume... By order of The King!!
