I recently got interested in Folk Metal and I like it more an more. At first, I thought Finntroll was about the only Folk Metal band and that it was a marginal and widely unknown genre, but I soon realized Folk Metal bands are many, hailing from a lot of countries, ready to sing or scream the legends of their homeland. I only know half the bands I mentioned above and I'd like you to tell me which one you like the most and help me separating original and innovating ones from tasteless copycats...

Out of that list, my vote goes to Ensiferum.
Total though, my vote would have to be for Windir.

I had to vote for Agalloch out of loyalty to the band. Equilibrium comes in a close 2nd. But I'd have to say Kromlek or Finsterforst would take my vote had there been an option.

It's Ensiferum for me. There is so much energy on their songs.

Among those Moonsorrow all the way, but it's kinda odd to call them folk metal.

Ensiferum, though a tough call.
Also, isn't Elvenking a little more power than folk?

Elvenking. Clean Vocals, Folk, and Power = Greatness.

Primordial, Cruachan (I really only like The Middle Kingdom, though, but that's amazing), Skyclad, Falkenbach. Out of these, Moonsorrow, followed by Agalloch.

If they count as folk metal, it should be Orphanned Land, their music is just on a different level. Arabic, Klezmer progmetal mix with their religios concepts..just a level on its own. Followed by upcoming bands Myrath, Arkan, Ambehr and my favorites the singapores Rudra with their southern indian music/thrash mix. Therefore none european Folk Metal.
Dentura
Shadow King

Out of this list, I would go with Agalloch, The Mantle is one of the greatest albums ever written as far as I'm concerned. Although I really like Moonsorrow and Ensiferum as well.

Years have passed since my post in 2008 and now i just wonder, what a power metal band does in a first place of folk metal competition?

Well, that's really easy. That which dominates the folk sound, and summons the howling north winds. That which summons the spirit of mother nature itself, Moonsorrow. Your songs echoes past and present!

Power Metal? No,it's Folk Metal. They have Folk musical instruments on their albums.
