Well, I don't usually listen to Folk Metal, but I thought I'd give it a try.
It's influenced by... various folk metal bands I don't really know but i've heard now and then. Oh, and by Maiden, but everything I write is influenced by maiden.

I had a good time writing it. Hope you like it

crit as I listen:

The buildup is pretty good but I think could be better
The melody is nice when it kicks in
The verse riff is alright, could be better. I like the transition into the first verse.
Gets a bit boring after a while though, good do with some more variation
I like the chorus, flows back into the melody nicely.
Yeah when the verse riff kicks back in you should change something.
Bridge is pretty cool and I like the harmony, sounds good.
That last bar before the melody is really cool but it doesn't flow into the melody very well
Could make something different about the final chorus, I think it needs a bit more of a dramatic finish.

Pretty cool though, I like it. C4C? https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1252601

I didn't really like intro. I loved "melody". And verse riff is very good, I really love this one ! Must be influenced by finntroll. Chorus was fine. Go is very good part ! Bridge is cool! It's by the way awesome that someone actually understands that keyboard and guitar can make together harmony! Damn awesome! 10/10

lol yeah, probably influenced by finntroll since a good friend of mine listens to them a lot.
This is actually the first time I tried a keyboard-guitar harmony, and I really like the idea.
Glad you liked it

I've uploaded a new version with improvements/changes according to your criticism. Hope you like it

I'm critting version 2.

Intro: The idea in the intro is good (a build-up, i suppose), but you should work on the drums, they aren't as good as they could be.
Melody: Good work on lead guitar, no complains there.
Verse Riff: Very good, keyboards were awesome. The only thing I think you should do is palm-mute chords in the guitars.
Verse: Same thing of the Verse Riff. BTW, nice guitar lick in the end.
Chorus and Melody: I liked them, good job on the transition from Chorus to Melody, really good.
Verse 2 and Chorus: Same thing of the others.
Stop part: Try a different riff there, or put the bass alone playing the Intro riff.
Go part: Keyboard sounds nice. Cool.
Bridge and Harmony: Best parts of the song. Brilliant work!
Melody: Same thing of the others.
Chorus/Guitar Solo: You did a good work on the solo, but try to end the song differently, like the return of the harmony with the Chorus' drums, or something like that.

Anyway, good song. 8/10

Crit mine?
