History

The band is Iranian and inspired by Tolkien’s Lord Of The Rings from whence it obtained its monicker. It was formed in Tehran, Iran by Dean as a solo project in 2004. Pure Steel Records announced September 28th, 2012 as the release date for Saved From The Truth, the third studio album from Iranian heavy metal band Angband. As with 2010's Visions Of The Seeker, the mixing and mastering was done by Achim Köhler (Primal Fear, etc.). The band had lost bassist Halaji in 2010. In the same year the band issued a video for the song Forsaken Dreams. The group disappeared only to reappear in 2020. American Tim Aymar was the singer.
