Great folk metal they are. Jaktens Tid is my favourite.

Alright, I'll give them a try, Japanese Black Speed rarely disappoints.

Hmm judging from your pic you'd fit in more with a fat busted tribute.

I think they're better than Ensiferum, but then i haven't heard all that much of the letter so I'm not qualified to give my opinion :P

Don't you forget Korpiklaani

Although I can't possibly choose either of the 3 bands over one another. The reality of the folk metal genre is basically Finntroll are the "gateway" band, if you will. I'd say they are easily the most famous. They are certainly what got me into folk metal. For a long time, I didn't even know there were other folk metal bands. Unlike other gateway things though, they are just as good as the rest of them

EDIT: Doubt they are coming to North America any time soon. They were here about a year ago (give or take a few months) if I'm not mistaken. That was their first time touring over here, I missed it

Actually they're from Finland, but they do their lyrics in Swedish. One of my favorite Folk metal bands, along with Ensiferum and Korpiklanni. ****in' legendary.

Much better folk out there, I actually find them quite overrated, sure they have a few fun, and as someone mentioned aboce 'merry' songs, but I dunno, I can't stand too much of 'em.

Falkenbach, later Månegarm, Cruachan, Korpiklaani, Amorphis, Vintersorg, Skyclad, basicly the stuff that's already been mentioned in this thread and pointless repeating just to prove that I do know some Folk bands...

Not the best folk-metal around, but I'll be damned if it ain't the merriest!

I think it's safe to say that Trollhammaren is only the greatest song ever written about anything.

I've heard quite a few of their songs, some of which I've found bizarre. I know nothing of the band itself though.

Here's a rundown on what you need to know about them:

They're from Finland, hence they drink sickening amounts of booze.
They're from Finland and write lyrics in swedish, although they don't know swedish.
In Swedish, grammatically, their lyrics are horrible.
They play very drink-friendly folk-metal.

And that's all you need to know.

Finntroll make me wet. Seriously, wearing a finntroll t-shirt guarantees you hot womans.

They'll be all "OMG! YOU LIKE FINNTROLL!? I THOUGHT I WAS THE ONLY ONE!!!!1" And then we'll skip off into the sunset, merrily singing Trollhammaren as we go.
