Ulver...

I didn't find much when I searched the forums about these guys. I was just introduced to these guys last night and I can't believe what I've been missing. I guess a description would be progressive black metal, but hey music is music. Although their music is absolute brilliance, I would highly recommend listening to an album all at once, over song sampling. Every song is an intricate story...absolutely genius. This isn't your average band, take the time to listen to this and you will be blown away. Anyways, discuss...

New stuff is excellent but it isnt metal at all.

The old rawer stuff like Nattens Madrigal and Bergtatt are brilliant.

It's surprising how the new stuff is electronic (which I normally hate), and yet somehow just pulls me in, musical geniuses.

One of my favorites.
Favorite album is either Kveldssanger or Blood Inside.
Everything they've done is incredible.

Ulver was founded by Garm/Trickster G/etc from Bornagar and Arcturus. They used to be black metal but now they're some weird prog/trance/electronica type stuff. Kveldssanger is amazing - definitely get it if you're a fan of soft acoustic based stuff.

Kveldssanger and Lyckantropen Themes are very good.

madrigal and bergtatt are classics. Havent listened to their new stuff, it's probably alright but their metal peak was definatley bergtatt. Bergtatt is my number 1 'listen to it going to sleep pissed' black metal cd.
