    Have you heard of Suidakra? They are a folk black metal band as they call it, they started as straight black metal in the beginning but later changed. I would recommend Emprise to Avalon, and Signs of the Fallen. Very good sound. :bigthumb:

    I'll check those out. I've found a couple bands on heavytorrents.org, I'm more into folk black metal than folk power metal but I'm willing to give anything a try. I'll see if I can download some Suidarka tonight.

    nice I'll check those out as well...I'm about to look up Suidakra

    just checked em out. pretty good shit but it sounded more like a death\black metal band than folk metal.

    Primordial ftw
    must also recommend Empyrium, though they're more folk than metal

    Asmegin is pretty good. They're pretty similar to Finntroll. And Cruachan are cool if you like celtic music.

    Wintersun is not a melodic death band, they're a viking metal band, as was JAri's old band... Ensiferum.
