Another in a number of bands named after J.R.R. Tolkien characters/places, Rivendell was a one-man Austrian band playing mid-paced folky black metal, sounding somewhat like a cross between Moonsorrow and Falkenbach (coincidentally or not, Falkenbach is also a one-man black metal band, and its founder runs the record label that Rivendell was signed to). The Ancient Glory, released in 2000, was a decent first effort, affording a majestic air at its best while a bit plodding and pedestrian at its worst. Two albums were later released, with the last being Farewell - The Last Dawn, in 2005.
