Top 10 Underground Folk Metal Bands

Here are bands that leave me stumped on why they're not famous

The Top Ten

1 Svartby

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
Country: Russia

2 Whispered Whispered

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
Country: Finland

3 Mongol

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
Favourite song: Chosen by Tengri
Country: Canada

4 Trollgasm

Basically what you think of when you hear "Folk metal" these guys are sweet
Favourite song: Humppa
Country: Finland

5 Satanakozel

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

This band almost sounds like an Asian korpiklaani, and it sounds great, they also use a traditional Mongolian instrument called a Morin Khuur
Favourite song: Sonsii

These guys known as the "Black metal cowboys" sound exactly what they're referred to, and it sounds awesome!

9 Der Galgen
