don't even know where to begin...

this impresses me. as always, i guess. i'm looking forward to hearing how other people respond to this.

:-) You should know, Scott, that your EMP presentation *still* gets people talking about Ulver.

Does someone have "Bergtatt" handy and could send it to me?

roxymuzak, Sunday, 9 September 2007 15:56 (twelve years ago) link

OMG this thread revive is such a ridiculius coincidence! I've JUST (in the past half-hour) copied to my computer Ulver's ENTIRE album discography (alongside a LOT of other metal)! I shall be reporting to this thread with observations.

Themes From WB's MOHAH is unhinged, catchy awesomeness, yet also completely "what were they thinking?" at the same time. You want to look away, you want to hear more.

Thanks, GOTT!!

'bergtatt' is really something special
fantastic vocals, extremely melodic, sparsely brutal, and i'd imagine pretty influential (i'm hearing similar melodies in dissection and agalloch)
1994 could be THE year for black metal

listening to 'perdition city' right now. well it's good and all, but i think they've really evolved and found their true element outside of the metal realm since then. grazie

Charlie Howard, Saturday, 22 March 2008 17:56 (eleven years ago) link

the series of EPs they put out (and the soundtrack work they did) after perdition city are also a good taste of what was to come. although the progression from marriage of heaven and hell to perdition city is likewise a pretty major stepping stone to the current stuff. i would say that the sham mirrors was, in all its lunacy, a harbinger of things to come as well. especially lyrically and vocally.

ulver - evolution from day one.

(that's their new motto)

scott seward, Saturday, 22 March 2008 18:26 (eleven years ago) link

hahah 'marriage of heaven and hell' is wack! some great ideas and sounds in there, and guest appearances, but i can only listen to it rarely

Charlie Howard, Sunday, 23 March 2008 12:40 (eleven years ago) link

I love everything this band has been compared to. Maybe I need to get some when I have money...

jonathan - stl, Sunday, 23 March 2008 17:12 (eleven years ago) link

you'd be well advised

It's only just sunk in during the past couple of days just how brilliant Shadows Of The Sun actually is. Arguably even more intricate (in its subtle way) than Blood Inside, although I still prefer the 2005 record, because I'm more a thrill-junkie than a contemplative sad-sack. ;-)

(Also because it's got slightly better songs and more of a sense of flow)

Just got offed, Tuesday, 12 August 2008 13:56 (eleven years ago) link

i've been listening to the last two albums a lot again recently and only now hearing something similar to six finger satellite's law of ruins. maybe i'm crazy

kamerad, Tuesday, 12 August 2008 22:18 (eleven years ago) link

i must now hear six finger satellite

Just got offed, Tuesday, 12 August 2008 22:18 (eleven years ago) link

You may find it hard to divine the thread.

I've found myself deeply drawn to Bergtatt lately. It's becoming an obsessive, regular spin. There's something about the churning, hyper-melodic tunes with the pseudo-Gregorian chant vocals that rivets me.

And there's that irresistible contrary element to Ulver. The way they identified with the spirit of black metal as it was developing, but they refused to be confined to it. I like that.

So far, Enslaved is the only other BM outfit that capture my imagination in the same manner.

Brooker Buckingham, Thursday, 13 November 2008 04:42 (ten years ago) link

Ulver rule, cant stop listening to them lately.

Pfunkboy Formerly Known As... (Herman G. Neuname), Friday, 14 November 2008 18:14 (ten years ago) link

Bergtatt is amazing, a total classic - if anyone can recommend anything on similar lines, I'd love to hear it. Borknagar didn't do it for me, Blut Aus Nord's 'Ultima Thulee' is as close as I've got.

Soukesian, Friday, 14 November 2008 21:29 (ten years ago) link

Well Alcest's sound is heavily based upon "Bergtatt". Also, Forgotten Woods were contemporaries along the same lines.

Siegbran, Friday, 14 November 2008 23:11 (ten years ago) link

Alcest, I know and like. Forgotten Woods' take on Baudelaire angers me deeply, sad and nerdy as that may seem.

MaresNest, Tuesday, 22 December 2009 11:44 (nine years ago) link

My address is still the same! My craving for whacked-out semi-progressive sonic mayhem is undimmed.
