you want VIKING you want
Einherjer owns! They are from my hometown! *so proud*
The new album will be out this year hopefully.
hi Stigma btw
Windir is good, I think
check out Primordial, Irish black metal band with a lot of folk influences - especially on the A Journey's End album
Their 2002 release Storm before Calm is a great disc as well.
Thyrfing is amazing viking/epic/folk metal. Get it now.
Einherjer...good music...great music.
You can listen to samples at www.einherjer.com
I read some stuff about Enslaved in Terrorizer and I'm interested because they were compared to Opeth. But what do they actually sound like? I hate black metal because you can hardly hear the guitars and it's stupidly fast (the stuff I've heard is anyway). Are Enslaved like this or are they more traditional metal with fat guitars? Whats the singing like? I like death grunts but dont like Cradle of Filth style screeching. Oh, dont like too much keyboards either.
I don't think anyone has mentioned Månegarm
Sounds like you need a healthy dose of Blind Guardian - A Night at the Opera
Later Enslaved heads in a decidely progressive direction, although Havenless from the new album is pure Viking metal...
one question. i'm sitting here listening to falkenbach-...when gjallarhorn will sound and want to know if the rest of the album is like this song. if it is i'm sold.
otyg..i dunno if its been mentioned or not
Buy that album! That song is possibly the highest moment on that cd, but the rest really lives up to it. Incredible cd.
well, then i'm sold.
go get it!
Blind Guardian - A Night At The Opera is very epic, but certainly not what I would call cheesy. Rhapsody is epic and cheesy. Listen to anything by them (I like Rhapsody, btw).
Anything by Blind Guardian is worth buying at two times its normal price.
Also, it struck me that no one has mentioned Elvenking. They're damn fine folk-fantasy metal. Regrettably, singer Damnagoras had to leave the band some time ago for health reasons... T_T But the band is still around, so support them and check out their album! Nice guys, too; just go to their forum, whereat they post often.
Dragonforce (awesome high vocals, yngwie influenced music, so gay that it rules)
Bal-Sagoth (I come to reap the evolution harvest!!!)
Thyrfing, Vintersorg and Moonsorrow have already been mentioned, also check out:
* Empyrium (slow, atmospheric, folky)
* Ensiferum (dance around with a pint of mead)
* Mithotyn (dark viking, some good songs, others average)
* Suidakra (sort of melodic death with viking/folk elements)
Borknagar (but they're awesome)
