Shadow Rising is the first album by the Australian Neo-Celtic Folk Rock group Soundestiny and features music inspired by The Lord of the Rings. However, throughout the songs, there are no actual mentions of LOTR characters - like Frodo or Arwen, nor of Middle-earth place names – such as Rivendell or Rohan, etc. This album, together with Soundestiny's 2010 release, Winds of Change, forms a 25-song rock musical titled RingLord. The band has also written and recorded music inspired by The Hobbit releasing a mini-album, All that Glitters, in 2009, and the Dragon Quest album in 2012.
