Okay, this is actually some super awesome music

Pure Moonsorrow worship right here.  Finsterforst aren't a great band but I fell in love with this album when it came out.

Then if you want to start digging into the really down and dirty zero production value raw and primitive folky stuff you unleash a world of mostly Rusky glory.

Yeah, Equilibrium is awesome. I'll check out the others.

 

And I know Eluveitie a bit, not very well though.

Waylander might be a bit heavy for your taste, but I love 'em.

 

 

Not available for me. :(

You're ultimately not going to find too terribly much that taps the amalgamation of folk prog and epic Turisas accomplished on Varangian Way and Stand Up and Fight.  Prog and folk naturally clash, in a way.  The ethos at least.  Precision tuning vs wing it by ear.  A lot of folk-oriented metal bands reject the gloss outright, and those that don't often lose sight of the folk side of their sound after an album or two.  Týr are gods at it, though their sound is completely unique to themselves.  Epic progressive folk metal specifically, I dunno, there's not much on the market.  Drop a term and your options open up a bit.

 

Ihsahn of Emperor fame released a progressive folk album as Hardingrock.  Amazing stuff.  None of that epic soundscape that you find with Turisas or Equilibrium though.

Eluviete are alright. The young girl recently quit, though. They replaced her with another young female hurdy gurdy player, but I don't think she's as good as the first one.

 

I just saw Arkona a few weeks ago. They are too hard for me, but they put on a good show. I went to see Sirenia, which is probably my favorite metal band (neck and neck with Nightwish), and seeing as you're from Pennsylvania, there was a band with some prog influence from Allentown that opened for them called Mindmaze. They were okay.

And this is why Blind Guardian is the most awesome band there is.

That song is quite light, by the way, so even if you don't know yourself as "into metal" you can listen it without having to fear for your ears.
