how do people not listen to music? what do you do when you’re on the bus? when u want to feel like ur in a music video? when ur sad? when ur happy? how do you even live?
hey, as you can see I’ve started a list of folk and folk metal bands, because I’m a super nerd who probably listens to too much music and have a lot of recommendations to share
I’ve been asked about folk and folk metal artists before, so I hope you’ll enjoy it
OMNIA is a self-described “neoceltic pagan folk” band based in The Netherlands and Belgium. Their traditional music takes on the form of various cultural routes, from places around the world such as Ireland, England and Afghanistan. They play Celtic harp, mouth harp, hurdy-gurdy, bodhrán, guitar, bouzouki, didgeridoo, flutes of all kinds, bagpipes, various drums and percussion instruments. The band aims to deliver a message of respect for nature, personal liberty and freedom of thought and expression for all.
My favorite album: Pagan Folk
In the picture: Agalloch recording sessions for the new album “The Serpent and the Sphere” (release date: May 13th) via Profound Lore Production.
TURISAS is a Finnish metal band formed in 1997. Their music is often referred to as Battle Metal and could be described as progressive/symphonic metal with extensive use of grand choirs and orchestral arrangements + a violin and some folk elements setting the mood for lyrics about history, mythology and epic battles. Mathias Nygård’s beautiful and distinguished voice is also worth mentioning. They use mostly harsh vocals on earlier records and mostly clean on newer ones.
My favorite album: The Varangian Way
She is the dark one…
As a bird I watched her from my cold tower in the heavens
and when she fell from the north-place, I flew down and embraced her
I took her where the snow falls forever, she showed me the haunted woods
We gathered together in the oaken palace, free from both death and life
The fire blazed in her eyes one day and she tore the soul from my chest
With a bleeding heart, I flew back to my cold tower
to never escape and lie in a pool of death forever
Here is some haunting behind-the-scenes material for all of you.
Guess what happened here.
…Oh, little Hector, what have you done?
