The best folk metal is usually those who use it the least/most tasteful way. It begs the question, why even bother with adding folk? Leave folk music in folk music. I could see a good genre emerging that used the scales and the general mentality of folk music. Instead, most bands focus on how many weird and gimmicky instruments they can cram into a record. Until it moves beyond that, I see even less musical growth and potential in it than the tweebo shit.
