00:57 - Erik M. Karlabos, yeah that's true. I said "Russian folk doom bands", by which I simply meant folk doom bands that are Russian (such as Kauan and Raxa), not necessarily "Russian folk".
00:54 - Fearmeister Because Russian folk implies that the folk elements is based on Russian folklore
00:53 - Karlabos That's probably because the Russian folk metal tag doesn't make it clear whether it's "Russian folk" metal or Russian "folk metal". =P Raxa is the second case.
00:51 - Erik M. How am I confusing average with generic? Karlabos used the word "average", so I replied to that. Also, Raxa is folky as hell. What does it matter if the themes are about Central America?
00:46 - Erik M. Fair enough. I have the opposite since this sort of folk doom metal really clicks with me, as it's highly atmospheric/ambient. Its themes are also somehow appealing and refreshing. I like pretty much everything, really.
00:44 - Fearmeister Also, I think Erik is confusing 'average' with 'generic' :P
00:44 - Karlabos Yeah, the hispano folk elements were what I was looking for when I discovered it, but somehow didn't like it very much. I did like another band (russian btw) named Tenochtitlan thought... But you probably already know it
The line-up of the 4th edition of Paganfest America will include Finland's Ensiferum as headliners, along with the return of Týr and additional support from Heidevolk, Trollfest, and Helsott. The tour is scheduled to kick off late March 2013 and will cover both the United States and Canada.
Ensiferum commented: "So finally, Ensiferum will to return to North America. It's been way too long since we shared wild Paganfest nights with our brothers and sisters across the ocean. We will not come to pillage your cities alone; it's a great honor to join forces with Týr, Heidevolk and Trollfest for this once in a lifetime tour. See you soon folks!"
