In Denmark, a couple of months ago, a new band called "Sorten Muld" (which
translates to something along the lines of "Blacken Soil") put out their
first album. Here they perform a strange blend of Danish folk (going back
several hundred years) and techno. They've sold quite well (although I
myself, sadly, hasn't yet gotten around to buying their album).

So yes, there ARE bands who duplicate historical sounds, and they can even
be commercially succesful.
