What Are The Best Folk Metal Bands?

I like Ensiferum (you probably know that unless you live under a rock) and Holy Blood.
Some more?
PS Borne, if you’re reading this, not how it isn’t a question about you-know-who.

    Vintersorg is definately my favorite, Ensiferum kicks ***, and I don’t know if you’d really consider them Folk metal or purely Viking Metal but Einherjer is one of my favorites
    Another Viking metal band that is very close to Folk is Thyrfing, they kill all in their path!!!!!
    EDIT: oh yeah Finntroll and Lord Wind rule too!!!

    Oh and he reminded me, Enslaved and Einherjer are great viking/folk bands too.

    Lol I like your PS.
    I agree with Darth, I’m no expert on folk metal, but I really like Lyriel. I also like Midnattsol, although they’re more of a gothic metal band with folk influences. But they’re a favorite.
    Then pretty much all the ones that get listed I generally like …. like what Jester posted, basically. Great stuff.

    I won’t even say I’m a Folk Metal expert cause I’m certainly not. I do however like the Hungarian Band Dalriada a lot. If You haven’t heard them, try it…they rule.
    By the way, My Avatar is a Dalriada Album Cover.
