Anything good will do. I just want metal with harmonicas. Ever since I heard that one Black Sabbath song with one, I've wanted to learn the instrument, and just hear more harmonica in my music.

Finntroll uses it quite a bit on Jaktens Tid and Midnattens Widunder.. Hell, there's even a harmonica solo in the Midnattens Widunder titlesong.

Check out "Vanishing Point", the only LP by UK Crust/Thrash band Atavistic. It has a more Motorhead feel than the chaotic grind of their earlier EPs, and there's a fair bit of distorted harmonica used on several tracks.

Not sure if 'Harmonica' means the same instrument as it does in Dutch / Flemish but I guess Equilibrium uses them sometimes:

I think you (and the guy who recommended Finntroll) are confusing the harmonica with the accordion or melodeon.

Harmonica:

The Black Sabbath song mentioned in the OP is of course "The Wizard".

Indeed Balbulus, as I mentioned, in Dutch (and perhaps some other non-english languages), Harmonica or 'Trekharmonica' is a synonym (or perhaps even a type of) for Accordeon. The instrument you showed here is what we would call 'mondharmonica' (translates to 'mouth harmonica).

http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trekzak To illustrate the confusion.

Anyway, sorry to derail, carry on. I'm sure the OP wanted to hear metal with the instrument you showed, Balbulus.

That explains the confusion. In English it is also sometimes called the "mouth organ". Cheers Braltika.
