Do you listen to metal? Because I know a lot of those. If not, have you heard Kjøtt? Old school norwegian punk.

Yes, yes. Those are not Norwegian bands tho. :D But yeah, most of good metal comes exactly from Scandinavia. If you are more into extreme metal like I am, I recommend Dimmu Borgir, Enslaved, Arcturus, Borknagar, Emperor, Ihsahn, Immortal, Satyricon, Kampfar, Taake, Ulver.. as you can see the most metal that comes from Norway is black metal, or just generally extreme metal that varies in genre. Mostly half of these bands listed are heavily influenced by their own norse mythology. Which is badass, I am a big fan of their folklore. I am a student of Scandinavistics on a Faculty of Philology, by the way (their culture, languages and literature). But I just recently found out about this site and decided to refresh my basic knowledge of Norwegian. :D

I knew that Soilwork and In flames were not from Norway. Just don't know where they're from. I said those bands just to know if the sonority was that kind of music. Right now I cannot donwload or watch you tube video (I'm @ work and the internet here is not as good as it was suposed to be). When I come back home I'll search those bands you wrote up here (last day of this month). About culture and language I'm more into Japan. I'll try a japanese proficiency test this year. My knowledge about Norwegianl is almost null. Where I live is dificult to find a japanese course to study and even more dificult to find a Norwegian course (I think there is not a Norwegian course aroud home) but luckly I found this site. The only think I knew in Norwegian language was Hva vi elsker (the name of a Seigmenn music released this year) meaning what we love. About a month ago (near the Norwegian independence day holyday) I found a Norwegian guy working at the same place where i was.

Well, Soilwork and In Flames are definitely great too. Swedes are more oriented around nu and/or melodic death metal. I listen to so many their bands too. Avatar from Sweden was a greatest find lately. There is way too many great bands from Finland too, Amorphis, Nightwish, Tarot, Wintersun.. I have never been much into japanese/asian stuff tho. I am more germanic/nordic-oriented, haha. I love my Slavic culture too, which is very similar.

Too bad it is so hard to find corses in Norwegian where you love, why is that? Where are you from?

omg I love ulver, ive been listening to kveldssanger every since I read the nightwish biography listing ulver as one of tuoumas's inspirations. Wardruna is one of my favorites too.

Most of the Norwegian music I know is folk, and I can recommend you loads of that if you're into it. But as it seems like you're mostly into metal, the only metal band I listen to is Lumsk, which isn't really hardcore metal, but more of a mix of folk and metal, check it out and see if you like it

June 26, 2016

Yes, I like folk music, please recommend some!

Feel free to tell me about folk music. My favorit music style is Industrial music / Metal but I listen other things. Ex: Games OST (Skyrim V and Deus EX Human revolution). When I want to relax I listen to Cafe del mar. Lord of the rings soundtrack, Ray Conniff...

Really unfortunate, I'm definitely not proud to be English at the moment. But I'll hopefully be migrating to Norway when I graduate Uni so I'm not really all that bothered.
