Oddeus: Can someone recommend me a good Folk Metal- band? I like Dalriada, Alkonost and Arkona. Stuff like that.
Besides the good ones already mentioned: Wilderun, SuidAkrA, Elvenking, Týr, Wintersun, Borknagar

Also Wardruna, not metal but prime folk nonetheless.
Thanks for all your suggestions. Funny, but I know all these bands and have albums of most of them :) I´ll keep following this thread to not miss some unknown indie band. If you have a personal tip, let me know.

I can highly recommend Suidakra - The Arcanum (2000), perfect melodic death metal album with folk influence.

They covered The One Piece Puzzle by Skyclad (turned out awesome).

I could also throw in Ambeon - Fate of a Dreamer (2001), another project of Arjen Anthony Lucassen (Ayreon). It's a strange mix of ambient music with folk details. Astrid (singer) was only 14 at the time of recording but such talent.

Gave this one a spin yesterday. Wish this album had come out 5 years ago, superb musicianship and songwriting, but my tastes have changed so much over the years...

Seeing them live got me liking them a whole lot more. Some other albums I've liked this year are Iced Earth, Immolation, Havukruunu, Carach Angren, Warbringer, Archspire, Satyricon, Merrimack, Lör, Winds of Leng, & Artificial Brain.
VISIONS OF ATLANTIS - Return To Lemuria

Really like the new song
