Best Folk Metal Bands


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Brezno

I agree, they are highly underrated. They should be at least in the top 20. I wouldn't say are good enough to be in the top 10 though.

I think they are pretty good! They were formed in Slovenia and each member utilizes powerful, melodic, and growling(sometimes) vocals. I personally think they could be the next big Folk Metal band if they had some more fans. If you or anyone else is interested in any of their songs, listen to these 2: Krst and Solze. Those songs are legendary in terms of melody and instrumentals.

42 Finsterforst
43 Vallorch

Great songs with original riffs, structures and sounds. A very nice female voice and male growl, what else?

44 Aquilus
45 Forefather
46 Lou Quinse

Best newcomers! I think they are innovative! Hardcore influences, extreme metal and folk, I love them!

47 Wolfchant

Wolfchant has everything a folk metal band needs. They deserve to be higher than others on this list.

48 Northland

That band is just awesome, that´┐Ż's too bad that nobody know them.

49 Tuatha de Danann

I'm surprised they're not ranked here already. Best folk celtic metal I've ever heard.

50 Burzum Burzum Burzum is an influential black metal solo project of Norwegian musician and writer Varg Vikernes. Burzum came to prominence at the beginning of the Norwegian Black Metal scene in the early 1990s. Vikernes was imprisoned for 21 years for the murder of Mayhem guitarist Euronymous, and charges of church more.

Recently discovered The Pagan Manifesto, and it's pretty much my favorite thing. It's just an hour of pure happiness.

Great stuff since their first album. They are good storytellers and I do not know why are they #59 there ;0

Smashing riffs, riding a horse to battle feeling
Solos that rock your soul OUT! Every element you look for in a band my first and only recomandation!

This music is uplifting. I am now part of the elven Legions family!
