Moonsorrow - Pakanajuhla

The Meads of Asphodel - Apocalypse of Lazarus

Jaldaboath - Jaldaboath

Summoning - Flight of The Nazgul (hmmm honestly the first riff really makes me want to dance )

Therion - Three Ships of Berik part 2 (short but very happy drinking feeling !)

For Korpiklaani, I'd say Wooden Pints and Pellonpekko are my favs to move !

Nah, my pleasure.
As for some other suggetions:
-Solitude Aeturnus - Where Angels Dare To Tread (This can be a song for some slow and "decadent" dance thx to perfect Robert Lowe's vocals) *from "Into The Depth Of Sorrow"*
-Cruachan - The Brown Bull Of Cooley ( what can I say here - another folk\death pseudopolka) *from "Morrigan's Call"*
-Tomahawk - Song Of Victory, Ghost Dance ( dancing near bonfire while cosplaying a Native American. Or cosplaying Mike Patton, I dunno, lol ) *from "Anonymous"*
- Extreme - Decadence Dance *from "Pornograffity"*
- Helloween - Dr.Stein *not the original song but from "Unarmed - Best Of 25th Anniversary" (Btw, great official video for this one)
- Helloween - Perfect Gentleman *also from "Unarmed - Best Of 25th Anniversary"*
- Iron Maiden - Dance Of Death * this song is from "Dance Of Death" album*
- Alice Cooper - Last Man On Earth * from "Welcome 2 My Nightmare"*
- Tiamat - Do You Dream Of Me * from "Wildhoney". (Not that the entire song is danceable, but the guitar solo on the third minute surely is)
- Candlemass - Bewitched ( Sure, why not? Have you seen video for this one? Dance-dance-dance. But without the video it is not so great, I assume) *from "Nightfall"
- Running Wild - Pirate Song (Yarrr!) *Heard this one on the "Best of Adrian" compilation*

That's all for now, maybe I will some more songs tomorrow. Or the other week. Or year.
Unna Med - 05.07.2012 at 00:32

Killing Joke | The Death & Resurrection Show

"Sunwheel" from Drudkh, "Heathen Tribes" from Primordial, "Unbesiegt" from Equilibrium and "Gutter Ballet" from Savatage are very danceable... At least for me. ^^

That song is great. The band's work is extremely groovy death metal, and I love it, though not every song is something I would call "danceable". I might be able to suggest a few others from them.

But instead, I'm going to suggest this song, which is the grooviest song Meshuggah has, and one of my favorite tracks from them:

Thanks for the Meshuggah song, totally groovy
