Utumno, was the first fortress of Melkor in the far north of Middle-earth, before the First Age.
Utumno was carved very deep into the flesh of the Earth by Melkor himself. Through time, much of the subterranean domain had been cast from obsidian, fire, and ice beneath it.
Here Melkor gathered to him all the evil powers of the World. Creatures were also bred here such as trolls, “made in mockery of the ents” as stated by Treebeard. Cruel spirits, phantoms, wraiths, and evil demons stalked the halls of Utumno and haunted the surrounding forests.
Escape from Utumno
One barbell to rule them all, One barbell to find them,
One barbell to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them,
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
