Remains of Thangorodrim

Angband (S. "Iron Prison", "Hell of Iron") was the great dungeon-fortress of Morgoth in the Northwest of Middle-earth.

Rise of Angband

Melkor built Angband during the Years of the Trees, originally as an outlying fortress and armoury to his great northern citadel at Utumno. It was commanded from its first construction by Sauron, the chief of Melkor's servants. Angband was built near the northwestern shores of the Great Sea in the range of the Iron Mountains, as a first defence against any attack on Melkor's realm from the Valar in Aman.

Description

The entrance to the fortress was a series of gates, ramparts and courtyards lying in the shadow of the mighty Thangorodrim peaks. The cliff itself over the first gate was about 1000 feet high. Next, there were corridors of corridors forming the "labyrinthine pyramid". Nearly 10,000 slave blacksmiths worked there, including Ñoldor, captured and imprisoned by Morgoth, and their groans echoed.The walls were carved, among others, into trollish shapes. The same twisted scary sculptures, or petrified figures, also stood in the courtyards. The "Rusty Gate" led to the lowest chamber, and the room itself was supported by columns similar to large serpent trees. The floor was made of bronze. In the middle stood the throne of Morgoth and the footstool was made of in-depth captives. The throne was carved into the shape of wolves, balrogs with fiery mane, jaws of steel and red hands.
