* British folk-rockers Music/{{SteeleyeSpan}}, a band who followed on closely from the example of the ''Music/{{Horslips}}'', only with mainly English traditional songs, do a bit of fingers-in-the-ear Heavy Mithril. Tracks like ''Seven Hundred Elves'' and ''Drink Down The Moon'' are good examples. After their take of ''The Two Magicians'' influenced one of Terry Pratchett's ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' novels -- ''Discworld/EqualRites'' -- Steeleye became more closely associated with Pratchett and most recently have collaborated with him on a musical version of his novel ''Discworld/{{Wintersmith}}''

* Music/IcedEarth and Music/BlindGuardian [[AllYourPowersCombined combined]] to make DemonsAndWizards. Among other things, they have an entire album dedicated to Stephen King's ''Franchise/TheDarkTower'', however Hansi Kursch has stated that many of the songs have more than one meaning, and are more related allegorically, such as songs about Captain Ahab which reflects Roland's quest.

* New band Music/{{Twilight Force}} takes it a bit further by having their outfits look like they just got done LARPing and will tell their story through the music of PowerMetal. Also, their artwork is just wonderfully stylized.

* The {{Eagles}} did what for them was a strangely out-of-character instrumental track called ''Journey of the Sorcerer''. This might have remained an obscure oddity, except that in 1979, a then-obscure BBC radio comedy-drama was looking for a theme tune where the royalties were not going to break the bank. Creator/DouglasAdams loved this tune and thought it was just odd and atmospheric enough - as well as relatively cheap to use. Expecting his radio comedy show would last for [[BritishBrevity six episodes]] and no more, performance rights were acquired. And thirty-five years on, the ''Radio/TheHitchHikersGuideToTheGalaxy'' is still synonymous with this theme music...
