** The booklet that comes with the CD from their second album even goes a step further, with spread sheets of their classes and character stats, as if they where straight out of some Fantasy RPG.

* Stormwitch album ''War of the Wizards'' is based on ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'', but (according to TheOtherWiki) the copyright issues at the time forced the band to change the names of the characters (for example; Aragorn to Aaron).

* While not metal, the unquestionably heavy (and awesome) hardcore punk band Misfits have songs almost exclusively based on horror films from the 1950's and 60's. Classics include; THEM!, Where Eagles dare, Crawling eye, This island earth and Astro Zombies.

** Perhaps the best example is DerRingDesNibelungen (The Ring of the Nibelung) by RichardWagner, which is a series of four interconnected operas drawing on Norse Myth to tell an interconnected story. It's considered to be one of the most thematically and musically complex operas existing. Anyone get the feeling that if Wagner were alive today, he'd be writing concept albums?
** Another famous fantasy opera is Theatre/TheMagicFlute by Creator/WolfgangAmadeusMozart, which takes place in a mythical world heavily influenced by Masonic themes.

* RhapsodyOfFire takes this trope UpToEleven. Everything they have ever done involves some fantasy element. They are much nerdier than Dragonforce.

So you're a big fan of fantasy. You've read all of Creator/JRRTolkien's works and you play ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' on a regular basis. However, you also want to be a musician and find [[FilkSong Filk]] and other such genres way too mellow for you. So, what does one do? Join the exciting field of fantasy-based HeavyMetal! Yes, metal is not just [[RockMeAsmodeus about Satan]]. Sometimes it's about [[Literature/LordOfTheRings Sauron]].

* Slough Feg's 2003 album ''{{Traveller}}'' takes the shape of a RockOpera based on the tabletop game of the same name. More references to the game are dropped on some of their other songs, like "Traders and Gunboats" and "Psionic Illuminations". And it is ''awesome''.
