Ahh you're missing Tietäjän Laulu, Kauan's best album! Also you should check out Metsatoll's Hiekoda. Pretty fun heavy/folk album.

Oops, totally forgot about that album, thanks for reminding, and as for Metsatoll, I will try them ASAP!

You seem to have a few nice neofolk albums. It's not my area of expertise, but I do have a few recommendations you might enjoy. Not albums, but bands:
Tenhi
:Of The Wand And The Moon:
Espers
Hexvessel
Kiss The Anus Of A Black Cat

Then there's more traditional folk. Corvus Corax try to play authentic medieval music or something. Fairport Convention are legendary for a reason. I also like Pekko Käppi, who plays the jouhikko, a traditional Finnish/Karelian bowed lyre.

As far as metal goes, you seem to have a Falkenbach album in there. I guess it means you prefer Heralding over Ok Nefna Tysvar Ty, but if you haven't checked Ok Nefna, you should. I think it's easily their best.

Wow, awesome recommendations... Thanks!!!
I got Of the Wand and the Moon, but havent tried them yet.... as for Falkenbach, I tried only Heralding and Triuida (their latest), and I will try that one you mentioned ASAP!!
as for the rest, I will try them when I get the chance, but that Pekko Kappi, what does he play? I didnt understand what that "bowed Lyre" means!

I don't understand it either, it's just a definition I found online. I don't think there's an English word for the instrument.

This is not Käppi, but it shows what it looks/sounds like:

You really need Windir here. Urgently. Other than that, this is your best list. I was surprised to find Ulver's Nattens Madrigal here.

Windir is far from raw black metal. Incredibly melodic folk-inspired black metal. NOT raw.

first of all: I dont like raw black metal, in fact I hate it!
secondly: there is no "Nattens Madrigal" in the list, there are only the first two albums by Ulver, which are both folkish and definitely not raw black, look again in the list...!!

Also, since this list is almost exclusively folk-metal, here are some other recs for pure neofolk:
Faun
Nechochwen
Novemthree
Neun Welten
Vali
Frostmoon Eclipse (only their album Dead and Forever Gone)
Nest

Of course there are tons of others, but try these out!

The lack of Nest as well.

So yeah, I highly recommend Nest - Woodsmoke. Wonderful album, that one.
