    Hey all! I've been listening to a lot of new bands lately, but none of them have really hit me as hard and I would REALLY like to find some new melodic/folk death bands. Here are some bands that I've listened to:

    Ablaze My Sorrow
    Amon Amarth
    Arch Enemy
    Archeon*
    Blood Stain Child
    Chain Collector
    Children of Bodom*
    Cipher System
    Dawn of Relic
    Dark Tranquillity
    Deadlock
    Disarmonia Mundi (I like a couple of songs)
    Dispatched (some stuff is really good)
    Duskfall, The*
    Edge of Sanity
    Embraced
    Ensiferum*
    Equilibrium*
    Eternal Tears of Sorrow
    Fall of the Leafe (some stuff is really good)
    Finntroll
    Gates of Ishtar
    Hypocrisy
    Imperanon
    In Flames*
    Insomnium*
    Kalmah*
    Mors Principium Est
    Naumachia
    Nightrage (some stuff is really good)
    Norther*
    Omniun Gatherum
    Pathogen*
    Scar Symmetry
    Shadow (some stuff is really good)
    Skyfire*
    Soilwork (some stuff is really good)
    Sonic Syndicate (some stuff is really good)
    Suidakra*
    Throne of Chaos
    Wintersun*

    * = bands that stand out

    I know that's a long list and I'm sorry to make you read all of that, but if you guys can think of ANY bands, please suggest them! I'm in need of new stuff! It's not that I don't like the bands that don't have an asterik, it's just I think I like certain chord progressions and that makes it stick out for me. Like the intro to the Black Tears song by ETOS (I know it's by Edge of Sanity) is really catchy to me. Disarmonia Mundi, I really like the first three songs on that Fragments album. Hell, I even like Freedom Call a lot because so many of their songs use a similar chord progression that I find really catchy. My favourite song off of The Black Waltz would definetely be The Groan of Wind (if that helps at all).

    Again, don't get wrong, those bands that I've mentioned up there are great and I like them, it's just bands that use a certain chord progression tends to stick out (like the whole Timeless Departure album by Skyfire).

    Thanks!

    Otyg is a good folk band

    Check out Swallow the Sun, sort of has a dark melodic sound to it. I really enjoy them.
