Can anyone think of any folk/folk influenced metal/black metal out there that doesn't suck? When I first heard of folk metal way back it seemed right down my alley, but it didn't take long for me to cringe at the sounds of bagpipes and recorders. I don't know much about it, but there are some bands that sound pretty decent...Temnozor and Dub Buk mostly make the folk elements work, and Goatmoon's new one seems to steer dangerously close to folk metal waters while not capsizing. Isengard sounding stuff can be cool too...though I realize that none of these are technically "folk metal," just looking for some bands that make this kind of stuff work without sounding like Korpiklaani.

I had Lord Wind's first cd way back in the day and wasn't too impressed by it...listened to the new stuff recently, was surprised at the jump in quality, even if they are just ripping off the Conan soundtrack.

And, I guess to be more specific, I definitely like lots of folk influenced bands like Frozen mentioned, just wondering there are any that prove wrong the old maxim that one should "never go full folk."

the Lord Wind I've heard isn't metal, but I only remember having the first album

I guess Forefather, but honestly could never get into them because of the sound of the drum programming, makes the whole thing sound inorganic

early SKYFORGER!!

MOONSORROW. Particularly Verisakeet and V: Havitetty. Massive, powerful, epic stuff on those albums. Contrary to most bands of this style they have become darker and heavier with each release.

A lot of these are a bit polished for my tastes (though still pretty good)...how about rawer (shittier) sounding folky stuff...stuff like Urfaust's Geist ist Teufel?
