Hi guys, does someone have any suggestion about medieval related music? To better explain what I mean, I'm searching for bands most similar possible to "The Soil bleeds black", "Faun" or "Corvus Corax" and remeber, most medieval possible!
Thanks for attention, I'll wait for your answer :D

Whenever someone says medieval metal, I immediately jump to Dark Medieval Times by Satyricon. I'm not sure how close that is to those three bands you listed, but listen to the album anyway.

Love that album ;) but it's medieval in theme not in genre, all it all thank you for answering!

Nice band too, but more than medieval they're heavy metal! Thank you for the answer :D

Graveland, I don't know about stuff labelled as medieval metal, but if there's something fitting such tag, it's definitely Graveland over anyone.

you're going to have a harder time finding stuff exactly like the bands you mentioned unless you're willing to compromise on the medieval aspect for a more heavy metal one. this is a metal board primarily, so i can't imagine you'd get as many suggestions that are straight up neo-medieval like the soil bleeds black, for example.

that being said, however, you might get into the band the meads of asphodel from england. they definitely aren't a neo-medieval band but a lot of the stuff they talk about in their music might be related at least tangentially. you might also consider getting into some of the "dungeon synth" stuff like mortiis. it's a little more electronic-music oriented but from what i understand its all pretty medieval thematically.

I think that Ex Deo might be medieval enough, as their songs are about ancient Rome.

You should definitely check Summoning, an atmosferic black metal band with lots of medieval tunes and keyboards, also their lyrics relate to fantasy such as Tolkien and cool stuff like that, the main issue with their music is the fact that all their keys and synths sound a bit too much like midi files, i mean...their ideas are pretty cool and they sure have some awesome tracks but sometimes the GuitarProlike sound lessens the epicness. Anyway check this out:

Sorry guys if I don't quote all your answers, thanks to all for anserwing :) I know is difficult to find bands in this kind of music, but this forum is fantastic, there are many people with awesome knowledge here so I'm just trying to find something :D
Ah I liked both Ex Deo and Summoning, thank you :)

I guess In Extremo is too obvious, but I know you are looking for Cultus Ferox, Subway to Sally, right? ;)

Err, I guess maybe Wuthering Heights? Falconer seems kind of medieval. Also, Jaldoboath.

Falconer/Schandmaul/etc. all come to mind under Medieval, but that's not the kind you want, eh?

I don't know anything perfectly the same mood

Blackmore's Night is similarly medieval to Soil Bleeds, but more poppy
Seven Pines is more operatic/moody
Hagalaz' Runedance is more serene
Clann Lir is Celtic, but there are parallels in mood to Soil Bleeds
Sava and Skrömta are quite ethnic rather than simply Medieval, but I think you'll like some of their work

Stille Volk is the best medieval band I've ever heard:



The two guys are also into metal, and made a bitchin' cover of Iron Maiden - To Tame a Land (called "Adoumestica una terro") and they have a medieval folk metal band called Hantaoma (it's basically Stille Volk, only metallized):
