In pursuit of trying to broaden my musical horizon, I've found celtic metal!! From what I've heard, I'm a fan. Any others that care to share? AKA Folk Metal

lol yes Xian metal from the 80's/90's i can't listen too long anymore, but they're 'thrashingly good'. There's one song in particular i like, people often say it's too dark but it's got a rythm all it's own.

eta: released upon the earth

I'll have to have to take a listen to the Celtic Metal it sounds good.

Related-Ritchie Blackmore "Smoke on the Water"/Deep Purple legendary guitarist and member of Rainbow as well...has gone Celtic. BLACKMORE'S NIGHT is his acoustic Celtic group.

He's gone non-traditional Celtic and Folk-acoustic with a group of acoustic musicians playing traditional Celtic/Folk, and recently refused a Deep Purple Reunion Tour(current tour status unknown).

Kinda reverse of your thread direction...but pertinent to those that follow both Celtic and Heavy Metal music...Deep Purple/Rainbow/Ritchie Blackmore

Not one of their more speedier, heavier songs, but still a great track by a good band:

Awesome works everyone.......... I particularly like Haiduk, (thank you Haiduk!) although I must say I don't really hear the 'Celtic' within their music. Of those that I do, Alestorm, Skyclad (thank you Raven_Heart!), ELUVEITIE (thank you Phantom Traveller!), Tridanna (thank you Awareness 10!) Svartsot (thank you Caligstro!), and Skiltron (thank you Jin!) resonate with me the most.

Why all the thanks? Well......... I've never heard of any of these bands until just this moment. Thanks to you alll!! I play a wee bit of Celtic metal myself, most notably a vulgar rendition of Sí Bheag, Sí Mhór, by Turlough Carolan. Maybe one day I'll shock you all with a youtube of me scaring the wild chickens into the bush with it. I know, I know, video or it didn't happen.

I wonder if any of the bands displayed in this thread ever tipped their hat to the works of Big Country.... for they were the true pioneers.



Sure do miss you Stuart. Gone way too soon.

Great thread!

Glad to hear people other than myself are hearing something new to them!

Looking forward to that chicken fright video sir!!

I think it will happen (wild chicken fright). We've eaten dozens of them, but they are legion. They do NOT like metal.

Just a few wee links for those that care. Big Country were not metal. They were Celtic soul ROCK.
