There's a trillion metal songs inspired by Tolkien, as well as entire bands based on such.
This particular track is entirely in the black speech of Mordor, though with the black metal shrieks, it's hard to tell anyways :-)

Well….I turn to my Introduction to Elvish and note that under "Other Languages" there is a complete list of known examples from the Black Speech.
Twenty three words. And most of then are not in that song.
I deduce ? That they're making it up…

Oh, surely not! Why, artistic integrity demands better. Or is it artistic license allows anything?

As another songs says, Streitax, '…anything goes !'

Just saying – if you make it all up it isn't Tolkiens Black Speech. It's someone else's Black Speech.
