about

"They were once men. Great kings of men. Then Sauron the deceiver gave to them nine rings of power. Blinded by their greed, they took them without question. One by one, they fell into darkness and now they're slaves to His will. They are the Nazgûls, Ringwraiths. Neither living nor dead. At all times, they feel the presence of the Ring. Drawn to the power of the One, they will never stop hunting you."
J.R.R. Tolkien - The Lord of the Rings

Dear black riders of Middle-Earth,

INTERVIEW & REVIEWS :

Interview by La Tombe :
latombe1.blogspot.com/2019/09/colloquium-5-j-golfimbuck-of-balrog.html

Review by Indy Metal Vault :
"This is dark, epic fantasy synth – bombastic, cinematic, and symphonic, it genuinely sounds like it could have been part of the score to one of the films."
www.indymetalvault.com/2019/03/26/dungeon-crawl-volume-iii-in-which-two-become-three

Review by La Tombe :
"That one is likely his most epic production! The tracks are structured and arranged with a millimetric accuracy, samples from the movie are skilfully introduced and the whole release is infused with the power of the dark land."

Description by Gondolin Records :
"Immense and gripping dungeon synth steeped in Tolkien lore, The Dark Tower marks the return of Balrog in full effect. Started in 2014, this French project gained its fame in the early dungeon synth revival, but has an even longer history with the genre under different names."
