I am looking for Black Metal bands that use elements of their own culture and its music, especially (but not only) from regions that seem exotic to Europeans.

What is important to me:
- no happy music
- using the elements of the own culture should not degenerate into NSBM ideologies or similar crap
- no other kind of life-worshipping crap
- the music itself should still be Black Metal

I was also asked if Black Metal bands from Java or Bali with elements of Gameland music or Japanese Black Metal bands with elements of Shintoism exist, or bands incorporating traditional music from the Andes or the Carribean.

I would not reduce the exotisch elements to the music itself, I would also be interested in stuff like african Voodoo Black Metal or Russian Shaman bands etc.
Jon Nödtveidt once mentioned members of his cult working with traditions deriving from Afro-Brazilian Quiumbanda and South American cults of the Lord of Death. Of course he rather meant religious stuff, but who cares. Bands in this vein are always welcome, same goes for Vedic, Persian, Egyptian or whatever-sounding Black Metal.
I do not ignore the lyrics, but, as I have already stated clearly, I am asking especially because of the music. If a band you know only has such elements on one or two songs or releases (like Ulver and Cruachan did only one Folk Black Metal album), please mention that.
The kind of Black Metal the band plays is less important, as long as it stays Black Metal; it could sound punkish like Ildjarn/Sort Vokter (maybe I could also like raw punk, and here I also mean punk subengres like Grindcore, with such elements; I once heard a song played by the Chinese punk band SMZB, and I found it very interesting) or sound like the Hellenic bands; in the end, it is only important that I like it.

I also asked the guys on Nonpop (see Black Metal thread on Nonpop), where the following bands were mentioned:

As Sahar (Singapore; some songs)
Cruachan (Ireland; first album)
Isengard (Norway)
Kawir (Hellas)
Melechesh (Israel)
Moonspell (Portugal)
Rudra (Singapore)
Satyricon (Norway; first album)
Skyforger (Lituania)
Ulver (Norway; first album)
Xibalba (Mexico)

First of all, boycott Arallu! As someone who lives in Israhell I can assure you that this ''pioneers of mesopotamian barbaric underground black metal'' is just a bunch of idiots ripping Melechesh! Try Israeli GOLGOLOT, this is a one man project made by a religious Israeli guy, sick and raw stuff with Hebraic music elements. Ignore the infantile-looking cover artworks, just listen to the music. He has a myspace, find it in metal-archives. The Israeli ARAFEL's demo and debut album are kinda melodic BM very influenced by russian/slavonic folk music (all the band's members are from ex-ussr). Avoid their second album, it sucks.

Argus "Castelul Noptii"
Great Horn "Trizna After Sunset"

Both mid 90ies demos no one gives a fuck about, I think they're fantastic

You can still get the Argus demo from Fulmineos for 5€ postage included, Great Horn I think you can still get it from Drakkar Productions.

Negura Bunget from Romania might be one to add to the list... not really "exotic", but still worth a mention.

Drudkh - Songs Of Grief & Solitude might also be worth checking out

Gauhaert- Ygwaet Gwyr Gwynn Novi: Similar to Urfaust (contains a member/s) but a lot more folk based. Very dark atmosphere, sometimes so over the top, it becomes more sinister than humorous.

I always have been very fond of the first Falkenbach album

Hehehe I like the Viking Party on the last part of Heathenpride Very Happy

I think it's not so recommended for the first poster. Falkenbach were always partly goofy and joyous even on their early outputs. The later stuff is kind of Disney heathen metal. I like the old shit but my guess is that it's not the stuff he's looking for...

Primordial is a perfect example of a great "folk metal".
