Sabaton's Art of War is in another league than the other listed bands' respective albums in my opinion.

The Scarecrow, no doubt. The Art Of War is a close second.

All right guys, first time long time so here we go. Iced Earth got my vote, but it wasn't easy for me. I was really glad to see both Galneryus and Iced Earth on the poll. Speaking of the poll, with that well made and varied of a list I say "bah" to the "other" choice, probably wasn't needed. And also let me just throw a, "Man i love this site, cause I didn't even know two or three of those records were in existence, and now I'm gonna go check them out" out there.


Big up's to all metal heads and those here on this site in particular.

Welcome back man.

As I've stated, I think Sabaton's release is in another league than the others; although all the albums are great!

Folk Metal needs a core metal to build upon.
Ensiferum is folk metal built upon a Melodic Death Metal core.
Turisas is folk metal built upon a Power Metal core.
Finntroll is folk metal built upon a Black Metal core.

You can definitely tell Alestorm is power metal, they have the right ingredients in the mix, and you can technically play most of their songs on power chords. Smile

For me, my personal favorite of 2008 is Pharaoh's Be Gone. This album is so good and it gets even better everytime I listen to it. But I think it can even be better. Tim Aymar is underrated as hell and proves he's one of the best in the world right now.

Another one which almost made it was Hibria's Skull Collectors. If these guys keep continue making albums like these, they will be the next big thing.

Edit: Oh yeah, forgot about Boomerang's Sounds of Sirens, awesome German Power metal

Ahh I admit defeat. I checked Wikipedia and Metal Archives. They are power/folk metal.

EDIT: OH, when I read Alestorm I was thinking Amon Amarth for some reason. Razz

Edit: Talvisota (=Winter War) has not been a big hit in Finland, maybe cause it's used too much in different things.

I bought Falconer's Among Beggers and Thieves yesterday and have listened to it many many times, it's definitely up there with Sabaton's Art of War for me.
