It's just that awesome.

Amon Amarth
Ensiferum
Korpiklaani
Black Messiah


It's like Folk metal, but more Epic, I think.
#2
Try out Turisas and Trivium. Turisas is relatively new i think, but the man did reseach, so its authentic Viking metal.
#5
I didn't even see the person put Trivium...that is funny...Bathory though is my personal favorite VM band.
#7
TURISAS

They're so into the Viking thing, they wear red warpaint and like Wolf coats and stuff on stage.

Trivium isn't even metal.
#8
Try out Turisas and Trivium

#9
Turisas FTW

Doesn't get much more epic than Turisas.

Try Thyrfing, Windir, TÝR, Eluveitie, Ancient Rites, Enslaved, Månegarm, Twin Obscenity, Wintersun, XIV Dark Centuries,...

Epic stuff is more like summoning and Siebenbürgen to me.

Hell yeah, now this is a good list of viking metal, TYR own, the lyrics are a little cheesy but it's some awesome viking prog, eluveitie is also really good but I was told they were more folk metal but whatever.

I read that article on Turisas and they claim to have recreated/revived the battle metal genre, haha which is fine I guess but they're definitely viking metal.

Cadacross!! Kick ass folk/Viking Metal, similiar to Ensiferum, and Wintersun. Jari I'm pretty was in this band to.

Finntroll, I'm sure most of you have heard of, but just putting it out there.

Arthemesia, are pretty decent, also Jari Maenpaa was formerly in, and is a Symphonic/Viking Black Metal band from Finland.

Slechtvalk: A sweet Viking Metal/Christian Black Metal Band, (yeah the irony) but they are an excellent band and have a myspace like most these other bands, and are from the Netherlands. I made a thread on them if you wanna search the site and post your opinion.
crit my drawings with comments in profile! thanks

Viking metal / pirate metal / battle metal is all nonsense

None of it exists, its just bands trying to separate themselves from everyone else


I see your point, but I don't know if I'd say that they're nonsense. Sure, those aren't real subgenres on their own, but they're.... modes, I guess you could say, of folk metal.
#32
Amon Amarth rule, especially there DVD, as well as Windir and Bathory (even though I WAY prefer black metal BAthory, it's all amazing). Speaking of which, I just got a call that my copy of Blood, Fire Death is in.
#33
Ah Viking Metal... Basically the sound of Power Metal, Death Metal and Folk Metal joining up to kill their enemies.

You sadguy.

Saying 'Viking Metal' is far more convenient then saying 'Melodic Death Metal with a little bit of Folk with Norse Themed Lyrics.'

Exactly, or a lotta bit of folk if were concerning Ensiferum here.

Victory songs is probably one of the best Folk Metal records ever released.

Well then, bathory can be viking-esque with some black metal and maybe some folk somewhere in there.

I think it's easier to give it a label then some other thing.

(But I do agree with you, it's just a label, the music is other things, merely norse themed lyrically)

So I spose you wouldn't call 'war metal' war metal? Just blackened death?

oh no aussie pride.
