Ok.Here is a list of Folk Bands and Folk subgenres.I've taken this information from Wikipedia.I haven't heard all the bands I just wanted to write a journal about them.One last thing.From this list of bands I have only heard Rudra,Cruachan,In Extremo,Fejd,Moonsorrow,Waylander and Tuatha De Danaan.I don't know about the others but these bands are great.Here we go.
Vedic Metal:
The Aryan March
Warriors Of Peace
Blue River
Irish Folk Metal:
Mael Mordha(I was mistaken at the previous journal)
German Folk Metal:
Subway to Sally
In Extremo
Oriental Metal(Don't shoot me for that tag.I found this one at Wikipedia):
Orphaned Land

    Nice. But you are missing the whole East Europe scene, there are so many awesome folk metal bands...

    I know.I don't know unfortunately much about the East European scene.I can't recall any Ukrainian bands and the only band that I know from Russia is Abryct.But I know a lot of bands coming from ex-USSR democracies.And I will write a journal about them.Thanks for the idea.

    Check out Mabool it's an awsome mix of metal with oriental instrumentation

  • Nuntius_Mortis

    And its have a very interesting concept,too.This album took them 7 years.

    Nuntius_Mortis: Well, here are some folk/pagan metal bands from East (mainly Russia) I can recommend: Alkonost, Arkona (from Russia), Ashen Light, Butterfly Temple, Kamaedzitca, Natural Spirit, Nokturnal Mortum, Nomans Land, Pagan Reign, Severnye Vrata, Slavland, Svarga, Temnozor, Volkolak... Oh, and I like the El Norra Alila album much more than Mabool...

    They are more into Medieval Rock.I haven't heard any song of them,though.They are not so metal.I'll check them out.But Ritchie could do better.

    You are right,Final Serenade.I had to title this journal Variants Of Folk Metal.But Corvus Corax and Tanzwut are folk and not folk metal.I'll try to listen Blackmore's Knight.It's just that I don't like Candice for what she and her mother have done to Ritchie.Did you know that Candice's mother didn't let Ritchie sign an old Deep Purple album that a fan gave to him?Anyway,for good folk music,try Daemonia Nymphe.They are a good folk band.They try to revive Ancient Greek folk music.
