I don't know if anything like this exists, but I am looking for folk metal with Stoner themes and a doomy tinge. Like I said, I don't know if it exists and I might have to create something for myself, but I'm not even necessarily looking for something weed-based. What I seek is something more along the line of the occult, spiritually trippy themes of bands like Sleep and Electric Wizard with more of a folk metal sound.

The Flight of Sleipnir is the only band I can think of. I've meant to really listen to them for quite some time now, but didn't get to actually listen to their discography yet.

Here is the third and final band on MA that has both "folk" and "stoner" in the genre: Lovijatar. They just released their debut, but it's not doom.

It's a sidestep, but maybe Smallman.

Mithrandir combine folk rock with heavier stuff, they had some connections with the nwobhm but are not on the Archives anymore because they are not considered metal enough, here's a song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pyU5WsMyhZE

This is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!

I wasn't necessarily creating this thread looking for anything like this, but 70's psychedelic rock is one of my non-metal passions, and this is very high caliber. Thanks for posting this.

There's a band called Hexvessel. They are mostly folk but have some stoner metal elements with King Crimson vocals :) Kindda like The Doors meet Witchcraft. You reallly should check them out.

While possibly not exactly what you're looking for, you should check out Gods Tower's earlier
stuff which is some kind of folk doom stuff with a "pagan" edge. Even if it's not the exact kind of
music you have requested - they are a great band with a very special (great!) guitar sound.

Aarni might be to your liking, specifically their first album, Bathos. Real doomy stuff, psychedelic, has the Finnish folk melodies in there, too.

The thread OP was over three years old.
