Skyforger

This Latvian band has been active since 1995, and have a pretty original style going for them. Their sound is often described as "pagan folk metal", and while there is a clear folk metal sound here, they also borrow from the viking and black metal genres. They have taken some unfortunate and unjustified criticism for being a Nazi band (due to the similarity of a swastika in their logo), though they insist they have nothing to do with Naziism in any respect.
