    best thing to do is go to Metal Archives and look up the pagan / folk / viking list and just just start listening to samples through links.....

    I recommend...

    Hordak
    Vokolak
    Krynitza
    Svartsby
    Izmoroz
    Arkona
    Alkonost


    there are so many...

    Izmoroz is grand. I grabbed Na Zakate Bagrovom off of Dark Symphonies for 8$ after seeing "Side project of Ashen Light members"... was one of my better pretty much blind buys.

    Gotta start doing blinds more often, much better of a feeling when they actually pay off.

    Anyway, to continue the listing:

    XIV Dark Centuries
    (Later) Graveland
    Obtest (I now wish I would have paid more attention to their set at HC2)
    Manegarm
    Aes Dana

    I do blind buys each week and it is great. Mostly with the Russian Pagan stuff. So far only disappointed in one disc out of many.

    BTW- I wouldn't categorize Farsot as "Pagan". :)


    These would be perfect additions to the bill.


    The recommendation of latter day Graveland is RIA endorsed. <stamp it>

    Still kicking myself for missing their set.:cry:

    They have a new album coming out and just signed with Osmose and could probably use more exposure. Obtest for Heathen Crusade III!:lol:

    One of the things that I loved about HC2, is that pretty much every band, with the exception of Earthen, was way fun live, regardless of how I felt about their albums. I'm not a huge fan of Obtest's albums, though I do enjoy them from time to time, but they were awesome. Same goes for Skyforger, I like their albums, but none of them ever became one of my favorites. They played my second favorite set of the fest.

    I'd gladly pound the lead vocalist of Earthen with my Obtest. (Bal-Sagoth deep)

    This thread really changed from it's initial purpose. It makes me feel sorrow and bereavement.

    Not pound as in assault, but pound as in "batter".

    Brian, check the Royal Carnage Recommendation forum for my Pagan reco of the week. :heh:
