Folk Metal Suggestions

#1 Post by Led Guardian » 28 Jan 2010 03:51

Right now I'm looking for bands similar to Eluveitie, but with clean vocals. I love the Celtic atmosphere of their music, but I can never decide whether I enjoy it because I dislike harsh vocals. So, I'd love some suggestions for music with a similar feel, and it doesn't actually have to be metal. I love their new acoustic album. Flute, mandolins, bagpipes, fiddles, etc. are a good thing.

Try Slayer.
You charge each other for the time and breath it takes to say 'good morning',
But the truth is slowly dawning -- things are getting out of hand,
We all pursue our shattered dreams along the roads to our own ruin --
Watch our empires sink and wash away like castles made of sand.
And so cast off the lies that are your lives and find the truth within.
-- Martin Walkyier

Also, Balrogs have wings.

I'm actually looking for the same thing as you. You might try Orden Ogan, they have folk influences and the songs I heard are all with clean vocals. Their songs are quite fast sometimes, and with their new album the folk thing is not as dominant as on their first two albums.

I'm actually looking for the folk influence to be more prominent, so I'd probably be more interested in the first two.

The most celtic metalband I can think off is Cruachan - their Middle Kingdom cd is as close to Riverdance as any record I can think of. Other bands which you might want to try are Elvenking's debut Heathenreel and Otyg, who only released one album which name escapes me right now. And can I assume you know In Extremo? If not, try them out too. Let me know if these suggestions were useful to you. :)

Cruachan: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QQ-aXrbU ... re=related
Otyg: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ljbNJvvDsKA
Elvenking: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eHvZHjIsGl4
In Extremo, at one of their shows I saw: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8auwEXJa ... re=related
And another Elvenking-song that's so bad it's actually great: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Od11FTLdb5E

I agree with you on the vocal parts. I love to listen to Irish/celtic/new age-music in general, and I am always bothered by the fact that metalbands who adopt celtic influences insist on using cookiemonster-vocals.

Hey Oro, is Elvenking' s acoustic album any good?

i am also sick of the growls and grunts, and it's not as if these people can't actually sing, like Thyrfing.

Schelmish are good: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_BgxcbBQlK4 It's a Scottish song, but in German here.

Lyriel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2qLV7D1v ... re=related

Edenbridge ( more Eastern influences than Celtic ):http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NppE1duW ... re=related

But what a pile of shite there is out there. :/
Non metal:
Peatbog Faeries: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9eVt4K-QNN8
Runrig: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FnUdMT5O ... re=related
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zn8uRobr ... re=related

Also if anyone knows how I can get hold of albums by Shaman ( pre- Korpiklaani ) and Intrigue, I'd be grateful. Looked everywhere, and no luck :(

I can definitely recommend Saltatio Mortis as well, especially their last three albums.

other medieval-influenced stuff would be Frederik's former band Schattentantz, and our local heroes from Cantus Levitas (Underground!)

non-metal: Runrig(!!!!), then there's this Celtic Rock Opera thing by Alan Simon called Excalinur (www.alansimon.com), which is quite good, Fiddler's Green (very joyful Irish Folk Rock), Schandmaul as well, Blackmore's Night, Feuerschwanz...

well, most of my proposed bands have non-English lyrics (Saltatio Mortis, Cantus Levitas, Schattentantz, Schandmaul and Feuerschwanz have German lyrics). But Heidevolk's quite good indeed!

I subscribe to that (especially the Elvenking recommendation - you should try Leprechaun, Damnagoras's side project while you're at it). The thing is, it pretty much depends on what you understand by clean/harsh vocals. If by harsh you mean growling only (similar to the aforementioned Eluveitie), then there are other recommendations to be made :

Alestorm (Folk/Power - pirate themes, similar to Running Wild in what counts as the lyrical universe)
Korpiklaani (Already recommended, have a few Shaman songs myself, they're not much in terms of music)
Skyclad ( Among the founders of the modern genre - heavy inspiration for Elvenking - try the first albums)
Folkearth ( Involves members of multiple bands, features both male/female growling and clean vocals + an accoustic album)
Mago de Oz (Spanish, excellent band - try easing yourself in with Fiesta Pagana and Rosa de Los Vientos)

Most of the german medieval/teutonic metal bands have already been mentioned (In Extremo, Subway for Sally, Saltatio Mortis). Also, if you do get passed the harsh vocals problem, I'd reccomend : Blackguard (formerly known as Profugus Mortiis), Svartsot, Heorot, Falchion and obviously Turisas and Ensiferum (we're already on viking/battle metal grounds here so you might as well pop in Wintersun as well)

Try some Empyrium for an extra eerie effect and also the first two and the last two Falconer albums (power metal with noticeable folk influences)

Or let us post some celtic music.... The songs that the mentioned bands are or might be influenced by.

??? - Isle of Hope: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AcxIdYbKu7Q
Dougie Maclean - Turning away: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WFCudS3QwGw
Loreena MacKennit - the Highwayman: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2CFM4ev-g8
Celtic Woman - Caledonia - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v28is4jFWeo
And of course... Amy MacDonald: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dU02tyBAp4A

Not metal? Shoot me. :P

If we're out of the metal scene for a while, I should also recommend Tears for Beers, a seriously underrated German celtic rock band :http://www.trilulilu.ro/beiunou/dfa5e9dcf0fa22 (The whole Mudwater Dance album has great covers + original material)

Saurom (formerly Saurom Lamderth): like a much less cheesy Mago de Oz. Spanish folk metal, bagpipes, flutes, fiddle, etc. The early albums are a little rough, but check out Legado de Juglares. There's a bit of harsh vocals in there (and honestly not that great ones), but not much, and Miguel is one of my favorite singers- similar to Hansi in some ways, though unlike Jens Carlsson he actually has that kind of power and richness in his voice.

Saurom sounds way better than I'd have expected (judging by the videos :P).

A little offtopic : Eluveitie's new album launch is getting closer (only 2 weeks remaining).

If you like those bands, feel free to check out Ignis Fatuu (also German lyrics). Afaik, they´ve got only one album out yet, but it´s really worth a try.

Check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O2IQeYr3eLw

I daresay that there's no cookiemonster vocals in the whole ELVENKING discography :wink: even though literally a couple of lines here and there are "growled" in the background, but no song has even a full verse sang that way...

And for what concerns Two Tragedy Poets, being a nearly entirely acoustic album, there aren't definitively even ROUGH-sounding vocals, let alone anything even close to growl or grunts :wink:

I prefer a country girl.

Fell in love with a country girl, morning sunshine
She was up from a nether world, just to bust another soul
Her eyes were an endless flame, holy lightning
Desire with a special name, made to snatch your soul away, yeah

We sailed away on a crimson tide, gone forever
Left my heart on the other side, all to break it into bits
Her smile was a winter song, a Sabbath ending
Don't sleep or you'll find me gone, just an image in the air

In dreams I think of you
I don't know what to do with myself
Time has let me down
She brings broken dreams, fallen stars
The endless search for where you are
(Sail on, sail on)

As a lot of people know, I'm into folk/viking/pagan metal big time. I have over a tousand jsut folk, viking and pagan metal albums and I always get asked what bands to check out by people. It's quite time consuming naming off huge lists of bands. I'll give you the URL of a folk metal message board I'm a member of I post under "Britton" there). Go to the "bands" section and you can read through all of those and it should give you a lot of info as to what you would personally like and want to check further into.

The only country metal song that I know of is Wardog - Damned. Couldn't find it on Youtube and since both Wardog and their Scorched Earth album are rather obscure and not very current, I guess this will be of little help to anyone.

Country metal rocks, although there is only one band in the genre that I know of (Dezperado's).
type Dezperadoz and you will be able to find them ;)
they are really good, definately more than just worth listening.
yeah, and the musicians are those of Tom Angelripper's side project :)

as for coutnry metal, check out "Stone Cold Metal" of Ensiferum's latest album From Afar...

In fact, Tom himself did half of the vocals on their debut-cd Dawn Of Dying (released as Desperados).

not exactly. it's only Alex Kraft, the rest of the Onkel Tom band has nothing to do with Dezperadoz.
and Tom also did vocals for one song (Here Comes The Pain) on the new album.


and i will see them live on saturday. :mrgreen: really looking forward to that, it's gonna be lot of fun as always ;)
YEE-HAW MOTHERFUCKER!

And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which
I’m dying are the best I’ve ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
it’s a very very...

KORPIKLAANI!

I saw them when Paganfest came through, middle of last year. Their music is just a lot of fun.
