not to sure if they go with this group (i think they refer to themselves as Barbarian Black Metal), but Bal-Sagoth is really good

is Barbarian metal the same as Viking metal?

Hey mick, could you put some of this up on the server??? I love celtic-influenced stuff but you can't get it on the 'net or in the goddamn shops here. I have a ton of Waylander and Cruachan already... it rules.

If your are looking for viking metal or folk influenced metal some real good bands are:

1. Suidakra (awsome folk influenced band)
2. mithotyn (above average viking metal, there album king of the distant forest is the one to look for)
3. ensiferum (not sure but lyrics seem folk or midevil influenced)

ensiferum...and bal-sagoth
not sure if i got exactly what folk/viking metal is, but if those 2 arent viking/folk, they still kick fucking ass

bal-sagoth-> The dreamer in the catacombs of ur, Draconis Albionensis, Tales of the deep woods
Ensiferum-> Intro, Hero in a dream, Token Of Time
(all their album kicks ass =]

Prymordial are a great Viking band, and definitely worth looking for. They sound like a cross between Enslaved and Vintersorg, or a less cheesy Borknagor. Great vocals and guitar work.

I thought Primordial were Irish. Doesn't that make them more a Celtic band than a viking Band? But you're right when you say that they are good. They are very good, especially the album 'Storm Before Calm'.

I think you are right, they are more of a celtic band. But to these unsophisticated Canadian ears, they sound a lot like a Viking band.
