The first successful folk metal band was [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skyclad_(band) Skyclad]]. Though Skyclad's first album was released in 1990, the genre didn't start to pick up steam until 1994, when such bands as [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cruachan_(band) Cruachan]] and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orphaned_Land Orphaned Land]] were founded. It remained relatively obscure in TheNineties, but became popular in Europe during the [[TurnOfTheMillennium 2000s]]. Finnish bands {{Korpiklaani}} and Finntroll are often credited with being the primary influence in the recent explosion of FolkMetal's popularity outside of Europe; and Finland has produced arguably the largest percentage of offerings in the genre. Since its founding, the sub-genres [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celtic_metal Celtic metal]], [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oriental_metal#Oriental_metal Oriental metal]] and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medieval_metal medieval metal]] have branched off.
