If Ulver were one of the X Men characters, they'd easily be Mystique. Ever changing, always in a state of flux, and able to morph their identity with incredible ease. When we last left off, Ulver dropped that "Zodiac Album" with the unpronounceable title. Highly psychedelic, jammy, and meditative, if you know the band and what they're all about by now, you know there's only one thing you can ever expect next out of them: the unexpected.

They've been getting more and more interesting with the last few releases. Definitely excited for this.

No, I don't think I'll call Mr. Strawberry. I don't think he's taking calls.

Wars of the Roses was the last release of them that I enjoyed. See what they make of this.

Nice to see them churning stuff out on a fairly regular basis now. Prefer some releases to others, but will always be interesting at least.

Vocals make a comeback on a Ulver song after a really loooooooooooong time. Despite being 0% metal or even 0% rock, this is actually good for what it is.

ATGCLVLSSCAP had vocals, one year is not that long ago


I like this. Though post-black ulver is always a mix of good and meh songs.

Proper song-oriented vocals then. Also Zodiac was a reworking of that Messe album.

I've been returning to the single a lot, both because it's a welcome break from all the neck torsionist music and because it just oozes coolness.

Hyped for this album.

This is everything I was hoping for after hearing that one track they shared.... and even a bit more. "So fucking sexy," indeed

It's really good, on first listen anyhow. My favorite is Shadows of the Sun, and I haven't been terribly interested in anything they've done since.

Agree, the whole thing is very Depeche Mode and '80s-'90s pop electronica influenced. Actually, it's better than anything DM have made in donkey's years. It has a dark element and doesn't sound bad at all, on the contrary I found it very enjoyable and the production is just out of this world. Oh, and there's nothing remotely sounding metal in it.

Uh, yeah, on topic. So, this is a great album guys, check it out. It's not metal though, in case you weren't aware that Ulver stopped playing black metal.

If this really sounds like Depeche Mode and such then I am steering clear of it, since I really don't like anything by Depeche Mode and such bands at all.

So, I take it you won't be going to their album release show at Roadburn then?

The rating is about the album, not MS. If you think Metalstorm is making a mistake, there are other ways to say that (forums, contact etc). You should not give a bad rating just because it has bad categorization or because its not metal. I think it's better to not vote at all than giving them a 1. Metalstorm does not remove bands because they "suck", so you are not doing anything good to get this out of MS.
