    Cool Pagan/folk metal!

    Anyone else really love this genre?
    My favorite bands right now are Arkona and Eluveitie.
    I'm sure there are more of you around here who are into this music. If not you must go listen immediately, I commandeth thee.

    It sounds amazing! I have a lot of friends who are into music like that, but I've never heard anything like this.
    Check out my blog, it's a good way to stay entertained if you get bored.

    Folk metal WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEY \m/

    I saw eluvetie live in germany a few years ago they were one of the best bands at the festival. The 'celtic metal' subgenre of folk metal started here and theres tonnes of established bands theres Cruachan, Waylander, Old Season, Mael Mordha, Darkest Era, Geasa, Primordial and one of my favorite new bands Celtachor. Its great stuff.

    If were talking folk metal though Fintroll and Korpiklaani have to get a mention. Trollhammeren is a tune for the ages and you cant say more pagan then Sami Folk metal. If you dont laugh at the deadpan fiddle player in this video someones stolen your soul



    - - - Updated - - -

    This is a fairly cool vid too another korpiklaani one where a lumberjack learns a lesson about the environment and korpiklaani steal his food and his drink

    Ahh Finntroll's pretty good. and you are not the first person who's said good things about Korpiklaani to me, think it's time for me to check this out. XD
    Also Troll Gnet El' is quite good.
    I didn't know there was a whole celtic subset, awesome XD i knew there were bands that fit the bill but didn't think it was its own little niche.

    Re: Pagan/folk metal!

    I dunno about English or Scottish folk trad but theres a few that throw in Irish folk Trad covers

    Geasa - spancil hill
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QR3KVX23Gcw

    Cruachan - Ride On
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8fNJSUSY4Ig

    A fairly epic Brazilian celtic metal band Tuatha de Danann - Follow me up to carlow
    Its one of my favorite trad tunes cos it features the massively historically neglected Byrne sept of Gabhail Ragnal and is one of the bloodiest songs in Irish folk trad \m/ Its funny the way they mispronounce all the words too hehe
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zE9YdvszXTE


    Talkin folk metal we cant neglect one of the progenitor bands. Mighty on the cheese though they be! hehe
    In Extremo's famous cover of the icelandic folk tune - Krummavisur. Hurray for crows \m/

    Oh man that rendition of Krummavisur was awesome. Rekindles my desperate need to learn the harp. XD
