|A Band Of Orcs|
I first read Lord of the Rings when I was nine years old. (Yes, I was that annoying kid-bookworm.) Blame it on Mr. Scott. Mr. Barry Scott, if I remember right. Used to ride a racing bicycle to school and back every day. Mr. Scott read us The Hobbit, one chapter a day, in class, and once he'd finished the book I had to go to the library and find and read the Lord of the Rings, all of it, all six books, and pore over the maps of Middle Earth and discover Orcs and Black Riders and Strider and Treebeard and Mordor.
If you're still out there Mr. Scott, thank you, I hope you enjoy these Orcs too!

(These guys totally cracked me up. I can't remember any of the songs that they played, other than that they were loud, heavy and metal, but they were incredibly and thoroughly entertaining. Made my night. Go see them if you dare!!!)
According to their Facebook page, A Band of Orcs are Gogog Bloodthroat (vocals and a lot of growls), Cretos Filthgrinder (lead guitar), Hulg ElfR.I.P.per ("Crunchy" guitars... crunchy???), Gronk! (shamanic bass) and Oog Skullbasher (war drums).
