pilau said:Show off! Well, you're not alone - Korpiklaani was here last September, it was a small show in a small club PACKED with people - so intense... They said never expected such an enthusiastic response from the Israeli crowd. The truth is, they simply don't know how many Folk Metal fans we have here. Then we had Finntroll last April I believe, but I didn't go. Two friends said show was great though

(well, ok, nevermind... )
Genghis Khan said:That was entertaining. Beer, beer! Something, something in Finnish!
pilau said:May I recommend to you folk metal enthusiasts Orphaned Land? They are the flagship of oriental metal, one of the most successful Israeli metal bands and one of my personal favorites. Musically, you could describe them as Opeth meets traditional middle-eastern and Arab music. Hell, they are so successful their biggest fan base is not in their homeland but in Turkey! I definitely recommend you check out their masterpiece album Mabool, and their latest effort, The Never Ending Way of ORwarriOR - both very progressive, complex and interesting concept albums.
Invader said:I have Mabool as MP3, but I haven't listened to it for a while. It's interesting music, but I'm not always in the mood for it.
Invader said:Here's "Juodaan Viinaa" by the same band. It means "let's drink booze". A cover, but a great one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6z4DRPG7rbc
And to continue with the same subject matter, here's one called Vodka. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e7kJRGPgvRQ

pilau said:Bah, these are the generic stuff! Except for Vodka maybe, these are the weaker songs! Here's where they really shine:
Invader said:I haven't listened to the band all that much, to be honest. You know them better than me. Do you know Moonsorrow? One of my favourite Finnish bands, and they write some insanely long songs.
