it is only me or did someone else notice that Howard Shore used a theme used for a computer game for the C64 as the theme for the 'Black Riders'.
It can be heard on the CD on tracks 5, 6, and 7 -shortly before the chorus starts singing..
The name of the game was Parallax, a sci-fi adventure and the score was composed by the famous Martin Galway. In the beginning you can hear an 8 note motif - it is exactly the same as Shores motif. Nevertheless, if coincidence or not it sounds awesome in the movie...
