I don't feel like listing bands, but Folk/Viking is one of my favorite sub-genres.
tyr, suidakra, asmegin, OTYG, falkenbach, graveland, korpiklaani, elvenking, ensiferum, amon amarth, finntroll.... and would i be the first to mention skyclad?
word. Primordial rules.
these ones are also quite fine:
btw. can't understand the hype about Fintroll. they're boring as hell. the same goes for Ensiferum which have just one interesting song, which is 'Eternal Wait'
I'm just starting to get into this folk stuff, but I'm glad a few people mentioned Pagan Reign, because they kick ass.
Suidakra, Primordial, Eluveitie, Nachtfalke, Folkearth, Thyrfing and Bathory are other bands that have interested me.
And of course...
I'm inclined to say Turisas, but Ensiferum get it, and only just.
Does Moonsorrow count, cause I'd like to add them to my list of favourite viking'folk metal bands.
Sorry for the epic bump folks, but I miss having a thread about this genre. I'm inclined to respond:
Only a few I can think of at the moment.
Suidakra, Eluveitie and Ensiferum are the tops IMO.
Excellent folk/pagan black metal. Anyone like these two bands?
These days my favorites would be:
Skyforger (early stuff ONLY)
Graveland (Thousand Swords only)
The following I enjoy from time to time but they're not really favorites:
Manegarm (Vargstenen is the only album by them that I like)
& maybe Equilibrium... I still need to check out their new album as it's supposed to be very good. I wore out on their first one, but it's still cool.
Borknagar, if they count.
for me it's gotta be Ulver
I'll be checking them out soon.
They sing about vikings, but they're melodic death metal. If you listen to every other band mentioned, you'll hear vast differences in their sound. Amon Amarth employs no folk elements and doesn't really match of style of most Viking metal bands.
Nice list. I've still yet to check out Skyforger, but I plan on doing so soon. Which album would you recommend?
I'd say that Borknagar count, especially the s/t and The Olden Domain.
