1. Rådarna – ‘The Formorian Horde’ With a Total of 36 points a clear winner. The best album according to two voting teammembers and second best for another, clearly the best debut of this year. Congratulations!!! “Somehow a crazy mix of everything and quite unique. Especially the interplay between the growls,the punky singalongs and clear chants I never experienced in any other band and the implementation of the same is really brilliant. The use of synths and the accordion underlines each songs and creates more atmospheric folky soundscapes.” “Rådarna is finding a very nice balance between folk metal, pirate metal and celtic punk, which makes this Debut certainly one of the most innovative records in the year 2021.”

Dear Folkers, we hope that you had happy holidays and that all of you are safe and healthy! Today is the last day of the very challenging year 2020 and most properly you are already preparing to celebrate the new year with your friends or family in a safe enviroment! Most properly the year 2020 was surely not the best one, as the CoVid-19 pandemic was dominating our daily lifes and now it is time to look positivley into the new year 2021. Times will get better and we will hopefully come back to a normal life worldwide soon. As a small gift for you for the year 2021 we did something very special and unique. We created a Spotify List, which is called “Folk-Metal.nl Encyclopedia”, which is covering all artists of fierce ‘n’ furious folk music which had ever been reviewed or reported about on our webpage and which are available on Spotify.
The playlist is covering all genres of fierce’n’furious folk music, such as Folk/Pagan/Pirate Metal, Medieval Rock, Celtic Punk and Speed Folk, so basically everything what a folker’s heart requires. Same as in our playlist “Folk-Metal.nl 2020” every artists is represented with one song and the playlist already has a running time of nearly 58 hours. We tried to establish a full Folk-Metal.nl Encyclopedia and the playlist will be updated with new bands frequently. We can only recommend you to lay back, “shuffle” the playlist and experience the full diversity of the different genres. Of course this list is not complete, but at least a try to create an overview about the great bands which are out there. If we missed some band, which is available on Spotify please do not hesitate to contact us under email@example.com and we will review if your band can be added as well. Please follow our playlist, as it will be updated frequently either with artists who have their debut or which we just missed to add from the beginning.
