I have been approached about a 20 minute segment on a "world music" radio show and I'm going to try and warm the producers up to the idea of a late night metal show. The Segment I have now is Sunday afternoons and the music has to be MELLOW! I'm thinking stuff like Ulver, Wongraven, Valkyrie, some Burzum covers off the old youtube, maybe Apocalyptica (though that might be too uptempo!), some Neptune Towers, etc. at first. then Maybe I can get them on board for heavier, down tempo stuff like Sleep, Sun o))), Kyuss might work, on and on. but what I really need is some recommendations on acoustic y folksy, safe music for squares. Just played by real musicians. Macabre's Minstrels album is already in the lineup!

I'm gonna give a little history on the bands, riff a little with the main host of the show and probably give a translation of the lyrics where applicable. I'll probably try to play 2 songs each segment.

PLEASE! Any band recommendations you can give would help immensely.

Visor om slutet by Finntroll might fit the bill, it's all acoustic folk/humppa.

Vali's Forlatt is the best neofolk album I've ever heard. Here's a good song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MyAUXRapii4

On an unrelated note, check out Between the Buried and Me's Desert of Song. Bluesy stuff. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZTE4jIxERU

I quite like the acoustic tracks on Sapthuran's "To The Edge of Land".

Ramble by Suidakra is a good choice http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbf6mFeIKKw

If I was doing an acoustic folk radio show I'd probably just play some good bluegrass shit. The Kentucky Colonels, Tony Rice, Norman Blake >>>>>>>> metal acoustic in 99% of cases

Thanks a lot for the tips, bros. All good recommendations. I'm probably going to branch out into other types of folk in a while, but at first I want there to be a definite connection to the metal! I'm really hoping this thing actually pans out. I'll check back on this thread regularly, so any more advice is welcome.

Borknagar - Origin
Empyrium - Where at Night the Wood Grouse Plays, and Weiland

It is getting weird how much I mention Empyrium on here, considering that they're ok but far from favourites of mine, but it is always in the threads where people are requesting something unusual, like with unusual instruments or "mellow yet still metal".
