Viking metal

Viking metal is a sub-genre of Black metal music. A lot of people mistake viking metal for any music which has lyrical themes about Viking Mythology, Heathenism etc. However, this is a completely different musical style. Arrangements are usually more complex than the somewhat simple early Black metal that originated in Norway in the early 1990s. Viking Metal also includes other genres such as Folk, Pagan and Medieval music too. The most important Viking Metal bands are Enslaved, Bathory (mid period), Finntroll and Borknagar. Here are some other Viking metal bands:
