dunno about Fusions, just bands who borrow from all over the place and vary from song to song (like Hollenthon)

I have a best friend who is constantly harping on me to get into folk metal but he only plays trash like Finntroll, Korpiklaani, and fucking Alestorm which are just so stupidly folk it seriously hurts.

Not to say I don't enjoy folk-ish parts. I love Agalloch and I've liked the folk-influenced segments of some Taake and Melechesh songs. Moonsorrow is great as well. However, in my experience straight up folk metal seems too dopey and... troll-y for my tastes. But if you can refer me to a straight up folk metal band that isn't like that, extra brownie points to you. Pantheistic or nature-themed lyrics are a plus.

Bands I don't like:
Ensiferum, Turisas, Tyr, Alestorm, Finntroll, Korpiklaani, Eluveitie, Skyclad


Skyforger's last two albums may be an answer: they are based more on solid classic heavy/thrash riffs with the just the right amount of folk instruments to spice it up :)

Not sure it exists, but I'd really like to hear Folk Metal renditions of Zelda songs. I've already heard bands like Powerglove do some great video game covers, but I think it would be cool to hear folk metal bands do some Zelda songs, particularly the more wind instrument and violin driven pieces. So if you know of any cool covers like that of Zelda (or any other interesting video game covers) songs of the folk metal origin, please share!

Windir is a great place to start. Maybe also Falkenbach or Moonsorrow will be more to your tastes.

very folky, very death, no peppy polka troll stuff
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i5vwUcTxw7o

slavic folk black, kinda atmospheric/progressive/etc.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQbXaJ4nogE

folk black, kinda epic.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GQzP0U7dBA8

borderline orchestral folk moments, and a lot of death
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jiCyZNaEiEk

?brutal? death and folk
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_DK8d_GUczg

viking metal
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jgU-h5QD_6I

and if you don't like this, just go ahead and kill yourself now (long song, give it at least 2 minutes)

Hello everyone,

Lately I've been getting into Black Metal infused with Viking/Folk/Pagan styles yet I haven't found that many bands. I'd like to know if you could recommend me stuff in the vein of Graveland, Vintersorg, Kampfar, Enslaved (but not that prog) and similar ones.

Im looking for a specific parts of folk metal that have the sort of uplifting/anthemic/choral sort of feeling to it. Im not looking for WE GOT DRUNK LETS JUST DRINK AND DANCE or anything like that. Here are some examples.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iMPiFaW ... I_GxOEH1qQ
the part at 1:47

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c5Nxnwi ... I_GxOEH1qQ
0:28


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O8SuJlQVVPM
the riff at 2:07 where it gets higher pitched and sounds almost like a classical music moment

Give me the cheesiest, riffiest Slavic folk metal you have guys. Stuff in vein of early Dub Buk (especially them), Nokturnal Mortum, early Stribog is more than welcome. I don't want clean female vocals, though. I just don't like them in folk metal, full stop.

Are you familiar with the Ukranian band Kroda? Their first album is overloaded with epic riffs and they are one of the few bands that use pipes in a non-retarded way :)
Their album Fimbulvinter is also really good

Are there any modern/new or up and coming viking metal bands that are kind of breaking into the mainstream of the genre? Not because they sound like everyone else per say. I haven't really kept up much the last few years. I could be wrong, but I feel like if you aren't one of the big guys then you're a complete unknown essentially. So this leads to a topic that I would be interested to hear some opinions about, besides just recommending me some bands. Has the genre in general hit a creative wall? Is there a platform or even interest for new young musicians to take a crack at viking metal?

Complete this list with Myrkgrav and Finsterforst's ''Rastlos'' and you're set for life.

Looking for songs with parts like this.
Youtube: show
1:06
Where there's a calming folky section of the song. Another example.

Youtube: show
2:29
Youtube: show
1:27

Preferably upbeat sections.
