This is the debut album from one of true pioneers in the black metal genre. Ulver creates a sound that ive heard imitated but never duplicated. The album grips you and never lets go, you find yourself thrust into the mountains, lost, cold and punished by an assault of black metal/ folk fusion genius. The quality of the musicianship here is untouchable and the frightening vocals of the legendary Garm are unbelievable. Ulver has since changed their sound dramatically, i would kill for the chance to see this performed live. This is the best black metal album ever to be written.

  1. Completely agree with you, I don't understand why so many average bands and albums are mentioned all the time and this Ulver album is often overlooked. An absolute masterpeace and a unique album. One of my favorite along with Mundanus Imperium first demo!
