New England’s ORCumentary has released an emotional cover of Annie Lennox’s “Into the West.” The original track is from the ‘Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.’
Orc Adams commented, “As a tribute to fallen orcs everywhere, I present my cover of “Into the West”, from “Lord of the Rings – The Return of the King” (a movie where lots of orcs died). Get it for free on my Bandcamp, and don’t forget that my new album comes out Friday!”

The time of the orc… has come! ORCumentary is a long running orc metal project from the mind of Orc Adams. Formed in 2006 when Adams was just a Lord of the Rings-obsessed kid, the band grew to surprising success, playing hundreds of shows, achieving viral success and opening for bands like Agalloch and Fen. While it may seem silly, ORCumentary has seen critical acclaim everywhere from Loudwire to Metal Injection.
Their brand of orc and comedy inspired melodic metal may be off beat – but it has certainly found its fantasy obsessed audience! Having been initially inspired by acts like Amorphis, Finntroll and Sabaton as well as of course by LOTR, ORCumentary rapidly developed a unique sound. Their live show sees Adams taking on the persona of an orc, speaking in a different voice, swaggering about the stage and insulting his audience. It all ties into a larger backstory where his character seeks to overcome the free races to ensure orc supremacy.
This stage show has won him acclaim across the internet, in particular with a hilarious set at a Hot Topic and then again when he provided an orc metal alternative to 2019’s much-maligned Maroon 5 Super Bowl halftime show. His sets are known for their self aware humor, but also their gleeful nerdiness. After all – that’s what orc metal is all about!
Now, after several years of silence, ORCumentary is back, preparing to release his 2021 album Fully ORChestrated and eager to take on the world.
