Super power-metal band, The Ring, hailing from Stockholm, Sweeden was founded in early 2004 and consists of three musicians Pontus, Jakob and Marcus. The Ring manages to combine the heaviness found of Dio-era Black Sabbath, riffs of early Metallica, twin guitar lines of Judas Priest and then work it all into a brilliant (albeit somewhat comical) concept album about... what else but The Lord of the Rings. Here is "Voices of the Fallen Kings" from that album, "Tales from Midgard."
