The Orcs' Chant At The End Of The Rings Of Power Episode 6 Means More Than You Think


The eruption of Mount Doom during Episode 6 of “The Rings of Power” inspires the Orcs to chant “Udûn,” which is pretty telling in regard to the arrival of Sauron. The word means “Hell” in the Elvish tongue, but it’s a loaded term that’s generally associated with all things wicked in Middle-earth. 

Udûn is also the name of a valley that exists within Mordor. Located in the northeastern part of the dark region, the place is a hotbed of volcanic activity. Morgoth’s fortress was based there during his reign of terror, and Sauron built his own stronghold around it when he rose to prominence. The valley appears in “The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King” when Sam (Sean Astin) and Frodo (Elijah Wood) must sneak past an army of Orcs to reach Mount Doom. 

Elsewhere, Gandalf referred to the Balrog as “Flame of Udûn” during their showdown in “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring.” In short, “Udûn” symbolizes death, suffering, and unpleasantness.
