Editors’ Notes One of metal's most unique subgenres, folk metal blends traditional acoustic folk music with extreme sounds like death, doom, black, and sludge metal. Developing into a global scene in the '00s, the sound of folk metal ranges from the triumphant Celtic melodies of Irish pioneers Cruachan to the Middle Eastern rhythms of groundbreaking Israeli band Orphaned Land—and everywhere in between.
