"Exotic" Folk Metal?
Buttercheese posted a topic in Power MetalPower Metal is one of those very much European metal subgenres, mainly through it's influences through norse mythology, European folklore and European classical music. Which is great and all, but I have often thought to myself: Wouldn't it be great to get more Power Metal with thematical and instrumental influences from other cultures? I know that some bands occassionally like to dabble in the area of Arabian Nights, but I feel there is so much potential here for bands to actually specialise in this stuff. So, does anybody know any Power Metal bands - or even Folk Metal bands, come to think of it - that are a bit more "exotic" that way? PS: Like the idiot I am, I complete mixed up folk and power at first (in my defense, a lot of bands I like do both at the same time, so it's hard to tell where which starts and where which ends). What I meant was folk metal, not power metal. Though of course I do prefer the mix of the two subgenres.

E-an-na - Folk Metal from Romania
Solomonar posted a topic in Promote YourselfHi, guys. I'm new around here, so I'll share some words about what I care about. My name is Andrei and I'm a vocalist and woodwinds player (recorders, whistles, bagpipes but also accordion). I live in Romania and have a band called E-an-na. We play mainly folk metal, but if you listen to our music you'll notice a lot of different influences. I'm always trying to break the musical stereotypes of folk metal, or of the music I play in general (I work with other bands from different genres as well, but that is another topic), and that will become more and more obvious as we'll keep releasing new stuff. We're currently working on a full LP which I hope we'll release around may 2019. It's really complex and only time will tell how we manage to fulfill this massive project. We've toured quite a bit since 2016, when we started our live activity, and even got to play Wacken Open Air in 2017, where we won the 2nd place at Wacken Metal Battle. A really unique experience. We always get a fantastic vibe from the audience, even if our lyrics are in romanian, and often the audience doesn't understand a word. Yet another proof that music can connect people on so many levels- The concept around which our band revolves is that of escaping: "E-an-na" means "the home of the skies" in ancient sumerian, and for us it is an otherworld that we created so that we can escape all the mundane negativity that is drowning our current world. A sanctuary where all people with good intentions are welcome. Below is our latest single, VIU. Give it a spin and tell me what you think! On the channel you can find all our music, some epic gig videos & links to our other social media. If you have any wish to find out or discuss something about E-an-na I'm here.
