    I find myself getting into this alot, I have listened to some Folk Metal bands before (most notably Wintersun, and Eluveitie) but I am starting to listen to more and I am loving it!

    Eluveitie - Inis Mona


    Korpiklaani - Beer Beer


    Ahh, its so amazing!

    The first song is so-so...not bad, but it could be better..But the second one..Beer beer..fuck, is that fun!! Great music, great singing....really good stuff..
    I listened to lots of similar bands, it's actually very similar to power metal, except power metal has drastically different vocals, but the music is pretty same..and if I had to choose one type of metal, I'd choose this as my favorite....Really good stuff..

    Yeah, Eluveitie is more serious, and Korpiklaani is more just "Lets have fun!" type stuff.

    I don't know why, but folk metal doesn't appeal to me. It could simply because some of the instruments used are very annoying or because I feel that I have better metal to listen to.

    I love folk metal, one of my top 4 metal genres, with death, power, and black. Mostly the more extreme folk metal though, like Turisas and Ensiferum, not as much stuff like Tyr or Korpiklaani.

    I was at paganfest (mainly to see Korpiklaani (the rest was just icing on the cake so to speak)) back in April and had a great time.
