So, i've been playing Lollipop Chainsaw and one of the things that really shines in that game, is the soundtrack. While on the Viking Stage, two songs left me curious. Namely, Viking Seaand Great Storm. I thought that the two songs were amazing and i ask you duders, do you know more songs like these ones? Do you at least know the genre of these songs so i can search for more? I'll give a bear hug for anyone that helps me. Thanks y'all.
 
EDIT: Also, this is on Off-Topic because it's a music subject, even though it has to do with a game.

I'm not a music snob so I can't give you any advice on the genre name, but hearing those songs made me think of this one. No idea what the rest of their music is like but you may want to start there. Song starts at round 8-10 seconds in.

They sound kind of Folk Metal to me.

Genre could fall into Folk/Power/Viking metal.

Check out Finntroll, Falconer, Sig:Ar:Tyr, Tyr, and Ulver.

Viking Sea = Sovngarde swing

I searched Viking Metal and got a few similar tunes, minus the synth.

You could always ask this guy.

That would be about right.

Irish folk metal, or "Celtic metal".

Viking metal - Unleashed, Amon Amarth and heidevolk(kinda).

The battle with Vikke was calling out for some Amon Amarth

I could only take like 5 seconds of those songs, but I got a Flogging Molly vibe.

It has already been stated but 5 seconds in to the song and I defiantly got a Dropkick Murphy's vibe

Ah, good old folk metal. One of my favorites. Bands to check out: Arkona, Turisas, Eluveitie, Summoning (if you're in the mood for something slow but extremely epic - this is one of my favorite bands of all time), Bathory (mid to later years), Ensiferum... This list could go on for a very long time.
