Evolutionary concept artists who've exaggerated and blurred the lines between every musical form they've been enveloped. As unconventional as their approach to music has always been the results have been consistently adherent and profound. In larval form they torqued the genre of black metal with folk, jazz, minimalism and soundscape offering this generally conservative design liberties it was once afraid to embrace. After completing their initial conceptual trilogy Ulver have astounded all who have experienced their current material with elegance, intelligence and multiplicity. Now, more than ever, Ulver have altered the way form can join and function in ways rarely sought. Retaining elements of their past, they now manipulate and extend the possibilities with a comprehensive understanding of the developing aural technologies.
