Century Media has announced the release of the ultimate box set (anthology) of Ulver. This release will present the formative (metal) years of Ulver, and its title is Trolsk Sortmetall 1993-1997. It will contain the albums Bergtatt (1994), Kveldssanger (1995) and Nattens Madrigal (1996), collectively known as The Trilogie - Three Journeyes Through The Norwegian Netherworlde (released under this title as a 1000 limited edition triple picture vinyl box set in 1997). Additional contents will be the band's legendary demo tape Vargnatt (1993) plus the rare compilation track "Synen" (Cthulhu Records 1997) as well as a recently unearthed 4-track rehearsal recording of tracks from Nattens Madrigal, a well-kept secret until this day.

With the exception of Nattens Madrigal, now with a slightly more compassionate re-mastering courtesy of Tom Kvålsvoll at Strype Audio, Oslo, all the material has been carefully and considerably re-mastered to analog tape by Jaime Gomes Arellano in Orgone Studios, London and consulted by Ulver's mastermind Kristoffer Rygg.

Trolsk Sortmetall 1993-1997 will be released as a brazen 5CD box set with a canvas-bound slipcase and 100+ page booklet as well as a 4LP box (plus cassette). The entire layout will be done by Metastazis, Paris, who has previously worked with Ulver and has for this design been given access to never before seen archival material. Trolsk Sortmetall 1993-1997 will have a total playing time of nearly three hours.

Note from Century Media: "As many of you might have noticed, the albums Bergtatt and Kveldssanger have recently been bootlegged on vinyl, allegedly by two European labels (one from Belgium, one from The Netherlands). Those bootlegs both look and sound sub par. We highly advise you not to spend a single penny on any of those rip-off releases. If you are one of those who have been waiting patiently for these classic albums to finally get released on high quality vinyl, please wait for a few more months and get the definitive official editions instead, fully supported by the band. We guarantee you good things come to those who wait!"

This is fantastic news. I've wanted to purchase the first three Ulver full lengths on vinyl for a while now, but they've always been too expensive. Looks like this should be a nice a compromise

Jiri will be purchasing. Hell yeah!

Very interested in those 4 tracks from the Nattens session but already have the 4 albums on cd, plus the Nattens itself as vinyl so not sure... Bergtatt must sound phenomenal on vinyl though. Damn you CM if end up buying it
