Over the Five Beat Pattern brass sounds a theme that combines the Realm of Gondor and the Evil of the Ring into a single corrosive theme. The assault on Minas Tirith has escalated. The lower levels burn while Grond’s grimacing snout grows ever-nearer to bursting through the main gate. Evil is taking the night, and soon its theme dominates the score, Mordor’s rhaita returning to present the line again over the Orcs’ lopsided Five Beat Pattern.
Grond breaks through and Minas Tirith’s entrance is flooded with armored Mountain Trolls and Orcs. A deep brass setting of the Realm of Gondor tries valiantly to rally its remaining courage, but it too is beaten down by the constant assailment and gives way to the Evil of the Ring.
