Technically this band is not metal, but it tends to be classified along with alot of folk metal bands, and it has a metal archives page:
http://www.metal-archives.com/band.php?id=24186

So i figured it would probably be accepted. Anyway, its a Swedish folk band that i found recently, and it seems to have alot of the compositional traits of folk metal (this is different than just folk) without any of the electric guitars and such.

here's a video, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=teWhlkEzVW0
