Great list, gets my vote. Some notes:
1. Ensiferum IMO kicks Iron's ass so hard.
2. Agalloch's Ashes must be higher.
3. Windir is missing. Borknagar's self titled is a nice addition too. I don't think you'll like the later though, Angel Lament. It's kinda raw.
Again this is one of the mightiest lists on the site.

well, first of all: thanks alot!
1- I don't know why, but I Like Iron much more than Ensiferum, it got two of my fav songs: Iron and Lai Lai hey...
2- I love Ashes, its just the concept is the first 10 are like on the same level, like they're all number one, then Ashes comes in the second place, I don't know if you got the idea, but it's like that...! I guess I can lift it a bit higher though!!!
3- No problem, I'll try it at once!

Try Windir and Borknagar. You'll like Windir, but I'm not sure about Borknagar.

Good list, but why there are only two Oriental folk bands?

These are my recommendations for you, very decent albums:

Aeternam - Disciples Of The Unseen (Similar to Arkan)
Myrath - Hope
Mezarkabul - Unspoken
Amaseffer - Slaves For Life

"The Bees Made Honey In The Lion's Skull"

hey, thanx aloot!
the reason I didn't include Aeternam, is that simply I didnt like their album that much!
but I love Amassefer's and actually one of my fav but completely forgot about it, I will add it right now!!
Myrath, I've been meaning to try them, and do you mean Mezarkabul that Turkish heavy metal band that has a song called Anatolia??

Yeah Myrath are great, you should try both of their albums "Hope", and "Desert Call".
Yes. Mezarkabul the Turkish band.
About Aeternam well their album is very similar to Arkan's Hilal, so I thought you might like the album, but anyway.

Im starting to see Kivenkantaja too high on most lists where I'm finding it out of Moonsorrow's work. Their most overblown and overrated album. I've always thought Verisäkeet is their best, and since then have they had still this more black metal influenced darker style. That's me. But it always has annoyed me when I see Kivenkantaja on the top of the mountain and Verisäkeet nowhere to be seen when it should be there...

Actually, Verisakeet is a good album, but I didnt like it like the rest three included, plus I've only listened to it fewer times, so I haven't included it yet, maybe I will after more listens!
and I think that Kivenkantaja is a wonderful album, folk speaking!

I'm the opposite with Kivenkantaja, with that said I mean I've only listened to it a few times as opposed to Verisäkeet. In which its always had kept my interest greatly then Kivenkantaja, though every time I'll put it on now and then do I forget how awesome it is at times. But I love Raunioilla, Jumalten Kaupunki/ Tuhatvuotinen Perintö and Tuulen Tytär/ Soturin Tie quite the lot!

Easily one of the best lists on the site. The Mantle is definitely #1, an album that proves sometimes popularity lives up to all the hype.

Also, would Negura Bunget count? Because surely they deserve something here (Om).
