Added DiffLines:

* Music/{{Finsterforst}} - Mixed with ProgressiveMetal and a bit of BlackMetal. They've earned quite a bit of comparisons to Moonsorrow due to the strong similarities, though they've developed a bit more of a distinctive sound on their more recent albums. It helps that they have a full-time accordion player.

[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Folk metal is a combination of various folk music genres and various metal genres.]] One of the most diverse Metal categories, due to the diversity of both metal styles and FolkMusic influences. On the Metal side, the primary influence appears to be DeathMetal and BlackMetal, particularly for bands from Northern Europe (Scandinavia, Germany, and the UK); with the latter being most common in conjunction with strong pagan and/or anti-Christian themes. Substantial influences from PowerMetal, ProgressiveMetal, and [[DoomMetal Doom]]/GothicMetal are also increasingly common; as is [[PunkPunk Punk/Metal]] crossover. Folk influences are typically derived from music traditions local to the bands' places of origin or ethnic heritage; but a few incorporate multiple influences, with Irish and Celtic revival being among the most common. Use of keyboards to replicate the sound of traditional instruments, as well as more atmospheric musical effects, is common; but a few bands rely primarily or entirely on traditional instruments.

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 Music/{{Korpiklaani}} and Music/{{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.

Added DiffLines:

* Music/{{Bathory}} - TropeMaker for Viking Metal starting with the two epics on ''Blood Fire Death'' (1988), ''Blood on Ice'' (mostly recorded in 1989, but not released until 1996), and ''Hammerheart'' (1990)


Added DiffLines:

* Music/{{Enslaved}} - They tend more towards BlackMetal and ProgressiveMetal than folk metal, but as the primary TropeCodifier for Viking metal, they deserve a listing here. Some of their songs, such as "Yggdrasil", are unmistakable examples of folk metal.
