    They're not prog rock. Bands like Heilung, Daemonia Nymphe etc... are more popular amongst gothic & black metal audiences.

    Yes, he has talent, but towards what exactly? I watched the director's cut, and apart from a sick stomach, I didn't feel I gained anything. Just my two cents.
    Probably my fav film I've seen in about 5 years, although 1917 is also monstrous and amazing.

    Cool thread btw, lots of interesting toons I have never heard posted here.

    Not sure if this would be considered prog, but it is pagan.

    They appear to have a pagan element.

    Pagan is in the lyrics, not in the music, just like one has Christian stuff.

    When we indluded them on PA, back them, it was considered as Wyrd Folk, though they're not to be confused with Faun Fables, the US band of the same era

    I think both bands started around the Millemium and are still active; but have no idea how they evolved in later years.

    Sadly Faun are now very much a Pop band with folky themes. So stay away from
    their current Albums.

    The last one I bought was Midgard, from 2016, and it's pretty great. Wouldn't call it Poppy. Discogs shows only one album since that one. It's Pop?

    Also, if you like Proggy Folk, you should check out Fauns, who have apparently changed their name to Favni:

    https://www.discogs.com/artist/799593-Fauns

    Member Bob Netherton hipped me to that band, and they are indeed very good.

    Listening now, and it's Lightly Medieval flavored Rock, with a very pronounced commercial edge. I hate to say it, but it sounds like something made for a big, Medieval themed stage production. I hope it's a one-off and they got it out of their system, but I'll pass on this one. Thanks for the warning.

    I don't completely agree: Some worship music may be unsung, simply instrumental. During the Baroque period in Europe, the chorale prelude (for organ) was widely used, generally composed by using a popular hymn tune thematically, and a wide corpus of other solo organ music began to develop across Europe. Some of the most well-known exponents of such organ compositions include Johann Sebastian Bach, Dieterich Buxtehude, George Frideric Handel, François Couperin, César Franck and Charles-Marie Widor to name a few. wiki

    They are rather well known in Germany (I think Midgard charted at No. 3 in the German Album Charts).
    They have a lot of TV advertising here and sound more and more like a sing and clap along band
    dressed in a lite Celtic folk mantle.

    I don't really mind. I like the music, just like I like the music of Santiano (which has a prog connection though Pete Sage, formerly from Wally).

    They are still much better than anything of actual Pop Music, but they are simply part of those "themed" acts
    like Santiano right now (they actually recorded a song with Santiano).

    I'm totally not in those "we are a Viking, Celtic, Musketeer, Medival" whatsoever Pop bands...

    As long as I like the music, it's alright with me. I also love In Extremo.

    Faun currently are lame pop with a folky edge. And look/sound more kitschy than Blackmore's Night.

    Another group supposedly close to Heilung is Danheim (who is actually one guy from Denmark). Its an interesting "genre" for sure.

    I just stumbled upon this tread and have a few suggestions that instantly come to mind. Two songs from Canadian singer/songwriter Loreena McKennitt. Her music is mainly tagged as Eclectic Celtic, but the music can crossover into multiple genres. Both songs here are from her 1991 album "The Visit," which IMO is her best alum and/or as a good first starter to her music. Both songs have pagan Celtic references.




    Fairport Convention's 1969 masterpiece "Liege & Lief" most know was an early attempt to cross traditional British folk and rock. It also features the magnificent and overwhelming beautiful voice of the late Sandy Denny. The tune itself first appeared in books of Scottish poetry in the 1600's, however its words goes way back father in time and is a pre-Christian Celtic pagan fairy tale story. Sandy's haunting vocals still make my arm hair stand up!



    I would consider both artists albums above to qualify as Progressive Folk, especially so at their times of release.

    Loreena is awesome although I like the much more ecletic The Mask and Mirror much more.
