Metalheads by snartha Metalheads by snartha
I’m starting to form a headcanon of what bands everyone in Middle Earth listens to. I was gonna make these more like a modern AU but then I still wanted to draw them as elves/drarves/orcs/etc.

Of course Dwarves listen to Korpiklaani. It makes perfect sense.

That's too ausome!!! I love Nightwish and they are my favorite couple :thumbsup: I'm not familiar with the other band though. Do they have similar music to Nightwish?

The songs of Korpiklaani have two main themes. Drinking, and old Finnish legends....and of course, the songs contain some yoiking too.

Aah, I see. I just bookmarked them on Youtube, will have to give them a list. Hmmm... what is yoiking? :D

Traditional Saami type of song. No words. Korpiklaani's song "spirit of the forest" has some joik at the beginning.

Aah, I see! I need to learn more about this culture. I bookmarked the band on Youtube so I'll try to listen to them soon. Got some other things to catch up on first.

Thank you :D And I think that's awesome that you're learning a Scandinavian language. I've been interested in the cultures of Scandinavia for a long time and one day I hope to visit there. I have a couple of Swedish and Norwegian language books but I haven't had the chance to study them. Spanish is in big demand where I live so I've been studying that.

Korpiklaani is a bit different, they're a folk metal band and they have a lot of fun drinking songs. :)

That's awesome! HAHAHHA! I always thought that dwarves would be totally into metal :D For some reason it just makes sense! I haven't heard too much of Korpiklaani tho :( It's hard to get metal music around here (I like to support bands so I tend to buy albums) Cute pic :D

Thank you! :) I like to check out new music on youtube and buy albums whenver I have the money for it. There's so much good music out there!

Youtube is pretty much how I find new music and bands too :D I also like to support bands when I can myself, metal music here where I live is hard to find (probably due to lack of record stores...) and it's pretty expensive, but I like to buy things on Amazon when I can :D

This is priceless!
I would imagine them both as metalheads in modern AU, Kili short and kinda stocky, but still in shape, and Tauriel slender, and very tall for a girl, to keep their difference in height intact to some extend.
Kili would probably have this very big, very loud family, with lots of cousins, distant uncles and family-friends, whereas Tauriel would come from a very strict, protective (probably rich) family. Still, they both have their underlying problems...

Yes very true! And since Tauriel's family is so strict, the only time they can meet is when they go to shows together...

I really love this idea and as a Finnish person I must give an A+ for the bands you chose (Nightwish and Korpiklaani are both Finnish).

Could you also make a picture of Fili in this AU?

snartha Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2014
Hmm I'll probably end up drawing Fili at some point, I've been doing a lot of these types of drawings and it would be fun to draw him as well!
