On topic... I can't really think of any good folk metal at this moment. The term leaves a somewhat sugary, but bad taste in my mouth. What kind of bands did you have in mind, voddy?

While I'm not that well versed in folk music, my impression is that some similarities between black metal and folkish music can be observed. For example in some folk music - I'm mostly at home with swedish folk music since, well I'm swedish - there is a lot of repetition on certain melodies or chunks of musical information that gradually metamorphose, in some cases without the listener being aware of it, depending on his/hers attentiveness and sensibility. The changes could be in the melodies themselves or their context, or both. The same could be said about some better black metal, could it not?

There are many silly works within the category of music referred to as folk metal. In many cases, the quality of the music and the connection to folk music can both be questioned.
Some culture's folk music would probably not mix well with metal, like some styles of metal would probably not work well with folk music. Heavy metal and black metal seem like the best candidates to me. I think that an attempt to musically speak about the things that metal and folk music can have in common would result in the metallic parts resembling either heavy metal or black metal.


So my questions for you are:

Are there any folk metal bands that you think are good? Let me know why you like a band that you like. And if no band appeals to you, dissect a shitty one and explain why it's bad.

and

Is folk metal as a style capable of producing great music, or is it a flawed genre?

The best of Metal stays with us forever.  I would say that it actively alters our perceptions of the world around us (and, perhaps, the world “behind” us [consciousness et al, I’ll get onto that at some point if I haven’t already]).  Like a “life experience” (going bungee jumping, being entangled in a hostage situation, coming close to death but surviving), this music informs us about our realities, our lives, and our selves, and, as such, it is indispensible.

I agree with your conclusion, but I don't quite follow your reasoning that got you there. The stuff about time.
Anyway, have a good day.

no body would predict how bad the censorship thing would get further on down the track. on the one hand it is sad, though it is likely to only force METAL into a better situation with time. pressure shot. and people starting to like the true, honest, old school spirit again. very interesting...

I do think this can make metal and metal people alike find their true rebellious spirit again, provided metal and other forms of extreme music isn't outlawed within the next few years. In a Marxist styled regime that Obama wishes to turn America into, metal and punk would be outlawed just as it was in the Soviet union.

Feminism is a communist tactic and has been since it's inception. Excuse me for making this seem like a stormfront.org post, but all this PC sjw shit is primarily an attack on white heterosexual males whether it's feminism, gay rights, anti-racism(code for anti-white), etc. Metal is predominantly made of white heterosexual males, yes I know there's exceptions, who just don't give a fuck and bands with lyrics who express realism. That just crushes the sjw perspective and try to censor it by calling it sexist, racist and homophobic which means that's very very bad according to modern day society's standards. This is just an attempt to silence free speech as we know it. The biggest threat to women's rights is radical Islam and yet liberals defend them and also try to censor anyone who expresses anti-muslim feelings. So, I think their agenda is clear. These libtards see white heterosexual males as society's biggest threat and think feminism, homosexuals, blacks and radical Islam can coexist in harmony. These are the type of morons receiving college degrees, says alot about our society.

I have no problem with women in metal:

Derketa
Jo Bench
Sabina klassen
Astarte
Lori bravo
Acid
Dana Duffy (who has also been persecuted for some racist, and I must say very accurate comments, she made during an interview with a zine all the way
back in 1998.)
Dawn Crosby of detente (rip)

Metal / SCUMRIPPER - S/T (Out Now On Tape) CALIGARI
« Last post by Caligari on February 01, 2016, 04:42:21 PM »


From the cold land of Finland comes Scumripper delivering six raunchy cuts of filthy black thrash.

Listen: https://caligarirecords.bandcamp.com/album/scumripper

Order: http://caligarirecords.storenvy.com/

Limited to 200 Copies
Pro Tapes / Pro Covers
All US Orders $45+ Ship for Free

Decibel: Scumripper and Obduktio are up to practically the same thing. Both bands purge grinding death metal; both Scumripper and Obduktio seem completely unaware of the past twenty five years in underground extreme metal, and somehow legitimately so. And both demos have Repulsion vibes aplenty, cuts of obscure Japanese hardcore spliced in; Holy Terror breakdowns when you least expect them, that flailing-arms drum styles a la Chris Reiffert.

Metal Trenches: ...here to kick ass and chew bubblegum.
