Orodruin is an American doom metal band from Rochester, New York, who play traditional doom. Some of the band's members have also played in the bands Crucifist (featuring Dan Lilker), Nechrochasm, Cyrus, 137, and Night Conquers Day. Orodruin were a part of the early-2000s revival of Traditional Doom, playing alongside bands like Reverend Bizarre, While Heaven Wept, and Penance. Today, members of Orodruin, along with other Rochester natives, play in a horror-themed progressive doom metal band called Blizaro, which is the brainchild of John Gallo.
