Top 10 Underground Folk Metal BandsHere are bands that leave me stumped on why they're not famous
The Top Ten
Using some very combos of instruments (Accordion, Clarinet, and vibraphones) these guys are insanely epic, definitely one of my favourite bands and am excited to hear what they release next.
Favourite song: Scum from underwater
Almost too awesome to be an underground band, these guys use the ancient Japanese them to base their band. It's a wonder how they can afford to produce such epic material on what I believe would be self paid for.
Favourite song: Fallen Amaterasu
Using the Mongolian empire as their base for lyrics, they bring brutal riffs, beautiful symphonic tunes, and epic ancient folk to the stage. A band definitely worth checking out

These guys have some of the coolest tunes out there, incorporating tuba and Accordion, you're definitely in for a treat.
