The original post

Mägo De Oz is definitely my favourite Folk Metal band : their music is catchy, heavy, with great folk touches thx to Mohamed's violin, Fernando's flute and Kiskilla's keyboards. But it doesn't harm their metal image (even if some metalheads thought that Gaia was pop, which I strongly disagree with!). Their latest release, Gaia II (La Voz Dormida) is probably the best folk release of last year IMO, with prog and power influences.

I'm sure I'm not the only one to love them... To other Mägo De Oz fans, don't be shy and share your opinion here about their style (which had been debated in the old forum), their albums, songs, or whatever related to them

I think the biggest "problem" is, they are at least 3/4 "folk" and only about 1/4 "metal"...so well, Finntroll's fans cannot be satisfied

I agree on that one. I'm not a fan, but I do enjoy their music quite a lot when I play it. And it's even better when you understand everything you're singing.

But yeah.. more folk than metal though.

But i dont feel they are "trying to pretend they are metal"...they are simply doing their best in their style...also i am just getting sick of reviews "another same piece of folk music"...damn when it is once good, why to "evolve" and do something "better"?

I don't care of the genre as far as it sounds good. And they do sound quite original imo.

One of the worst Folk metal bands out there, they are the equivalent of Heino turned into metal. Spanish is also one of the worst languages to sing in. It really is mind numbing to listen to, just as bad as Trollfest.

Then don't. I find Spanish to be a beatiful language and really like a lot of Mägo's songs but also dislike quite a few.

Hey yo, do you want a fight with my people, amigo?
Just kidding

O well... I have to second your opinion.
I'm proud of having spanish as my mother tongue, but like you said... it quite sucks when it comes to metal.
I preffer it just with normal folk music.

I like Mago de Oz though, not my favorite band, but nice whn I feel like listening to them.

Listened to Finisterra which I thought was pretty good, I heard about them through my friend who happens to be an account as well as a metalhead . Satania has to be one of the better folk metal songs i've heard in a while.

Must be the first time I agree with you. I don't mind the use of Spanish in Mägo de Oz, but I have yet to find something I like in this band. They have to be one of the most boring folk bands around. I'd rather be forced to listen to Alestorm all day long than to this... thing.

I am getting scared now, cause I agree with you 100% here. Goddamit, make note to self, never ever agree with Peter on folk metal (except when it comes to Alestorm and Skyclad)

Like Collin said, I'd also rather sit and be forced to listen to Alestorm all day long than this annoying band.

Mmmmm I disagree. Mago De Oz was a quite old band for me. And I listened back when I was 7-10 so it's understandable why I like them a little since I have some personal connection with the music and lyrics [I don't give a flying fuck about the language]. But yeah, they are really bad, specially nowdays. The first stuff was kinda good.

But C'mon.... Alestorm is the fucking monolith of pure fucking bad folk metal. It's impossible to b worse than that.

This band is easily in my top 5 worst bands list . And Alestorm is 100 times better than Mägo De Oz even if they are pretty bad

Wow, Mago de Oz are from my country, and I didn't expect them to be so popular out here. In Spain they are popular but I thought (and I still think) international folk were much better. I think they have nothing to do againts fintroll, eluveitie, finterforst or similar. True that what they do, as you say, is not metal at all...

It has always been a band that a lot of people hate and a lot love. I haven't heard anything they've released since the Folktergeist. All their studio albums sound really bad, but when it comes to play live I think this is an incredible band, few can play live as good as they do. You can even sing their crappy lyrics if it is live.

I still really enjoy their music. Sure they've made some real crap, but mostly the music is IMO really good and cheers me up.I'm really looking forward to see them live at Wacken this summer.

I used to like them many years ago, when I started to listen to Metal, but I got bored within time, they are good musicians, but I think I'm not interested anymore in this band. One thing I respect is that they have become very popular(at least here) with very little use of mainstream promotion. Still, I could never stand the singer.
