Indian Folk Metal.

Something I hadn't even imagined was a thing, and I liked it.

That's awesome!

Also Metal needs more tin whistle, clearly. Although tin is not very heavy.

Here's an interview with Bloodywood that gives more context.
Since 2016, guitarist/producer Karan Katiyar and vocalist Jayant Bhadula have been a parody metal band, taking apart Top 40 hits, Bollywood songs and Hindi/Punjabi commercial music and giving them a heavier and quirkier edge. But after tasting success with their takes on cuts including Daler Mehndi's "Tunak Tunak Tun" and classic folk song "Ari Ari" (the latter has breaching 1 million views on YouTube), the duo say they're about to get serious. Bhadula says, "People listen to a rendition and go, 'Ah, a good riff wasted on a cover.' Which is true."
Their cover of Never Gonna Give You Up is… something else.

Maybe worth noting, in addition, that (in the readmore of the video) they have purchased 60 counselling sessions for anyone who wants to reach out for help.
