I dont know if I should post this in the power metal topic or whatnot, but Im looking for power folk bands in the vein of Spellblast, Wuthering Heights, and early Elvenking(Wyrd preferably)

I found a band known as Vexillum who are similar to Elvenking who fit the bill, but I can't really find similar ones.

If I remember correctly Skiltron is a power/folk band.

Also, sorry if that's not what you're looking for, but I can't listen to your examples since I'm at work!

Honestly, if someone finds anything remotely similar to Wuthering Heights' Salt, then I'd love to know.

My favorite would be Dalriada. They're not typical power metal; their melodies are more influenced by Hungarian folk music and they have occasional growls and other elements of black or doom metal, but they're what I think of when I think of a mix of power metal and folk. Lyrics are all in Hungarian.

A more obscure choice would be Tin' Sontsya, from Ukraine. The guy doesn't have a typical power metal voice, which is probably why I like them so much. Their music is very difficult to find (I can't seem to locate their latest album), but I like them a lot.
