Pagan metal music on the radio

Pagan metal is a subgenre of heavy metal that incorporates themes and elements from paganism and folk music. Bands in this genre often use traditional folk instruments, such as bagpipes and flutes, and incorporate lyrics and imagery inspired by mythology, folklore, and ancient pagan religions.

Some of the most popular pagan metal bands include Moonsorrow, Ensiferum, and Eluveitie. Moonsorrow, from Finland, are known for their use of folk instruments and lengthy, epic songs that tell stories inspired by Finnish mythology. Ensiferum, also from Finland, blend elements of Viking metal and folk metal, while Eluveitie, from Switzerland, incorporate traditional Celtic instruments and lyrics in Gaulish, an ancient Celtic language.
