You could also do Bathory- Blood, Fire, Death and Hammerheart era. That's the true originator of Viking Metal.

Don't think Slavic folk metal should be a part of "viking metal" series wink.gif On the other side lyrics are what make the difference.. One band that wasn't mentioned and could also be of any use is Månegarm, although Bathory lesson would be cooler;)

Yeah, there are pagan\folk but i would say it`s part of this genre too, just different, it can`t be viking metal, because there was no Vikings amongst Slavonic people biggrin.gif

Not so much Folky but definately viking themed metal - Helheim (saw them last week as a matter of fact and they were awesome)
Also, totally agree with Bathory

Actually there were, but this is not the place to write books about it smile.gif

Here is a basic article with some mistakes in it, but well: article

Canute the Great had a polish mother, same as Olaf of Sweden.

Some other quotes from different sources:

"Olav Tryggvason's Saga says like that about Jomsvikings' campaign to Norway: "They had 20 ships from Skania [souther Sweden] and 40 ships from Vendland [Pomerania and Poland]. The king of Vendland was in this time Burisleif" (Boleslaw the Brave of Poland). Saga says Boleslaw was the father-in-law as well Sigvald, the jarl of Jomsvikings, as Sven Forkbeard - the king of Denmark and later conqueror of England - and the most famous of them, Olav Tryggvason, the king of Norway. According to Saga, Olav has spent 3 years in Poland (with his father-in-law, Boleslaw) and had there a lot of friends."


"That's how the Jomsvikings legend grew up.
Some of the Danish islands were attacked by Slavic pirates so often, that they have been depopulated at the end; later they have been settled again by Slavs from Pomerania. Danish invasions (with distinctly repressive character), like this from year 1043, shows that Vends (Slavs) were not easy neighbours for the Vikings; at the same time, when Scandinavian Vikings pillaged the West Europe, they own territory was pillaged by Vends.
In the book The Viking Art Of War (Chapter 'The Vikings and their neighbours), Paddy Griffith writes:
"To the south-east of Denmark lay the Wends (Vends) or the Slav tribes, who were in many ways just as effective raiders and traders as the Vikings themselves".
"The Slavs were always under threat of attack from the Vikings as well as the Franks."
"They also gave as good as they got , in military terms, sacking Hedeby in 1000 and harrying Denmark, Gotland , Oland and southern Sweden to such an extent that the Western Baltic was sometimes called Mare Rugianorum after the Slavic pirates of Rugen. The prevalence of treasure-hoarding in southern Sweden during the 1000s has led modern archeologists to believe that the threat was indeed a very serious one, and the Icelandic sagas themselves often seem to assume that "Vikings" in the purely piratical sense were almost as likely to be Wends (Vends) as Scandinavians."
According to our present knowlage, we can suppose that the team of pirates from Jomsborg was mixed, Slavic - Scandinavian, but after 1000 the Slavic element among the Jomsvikings was in majority."

There were even Slavic buildings discovered on Iceland, so we can assume that vikings were of different nationalities, not only Scandinavian.

Anyway sorry for interfering in the thread so much with an off topic, I am a IX-XI century history freak, forgive me rolleyes.gif
