Let's go back in time a little bit. To the time the Norwegian Black Metal scene started to appear [late 80's - early 90's], the time when bands like Mayhem, Emperor, Immortal, Darkthrone and Satyricon made their first demos and albums, their first steps to immortality. In the other hand, Ulver was known as "the weird boy", always different, never ignored. Along with Carpathian Forest, Ulver was the most underrated act of this movement. But when a band like this is constantly underrated, it's a sign of an unlimited but misunderstood talent. And a perfect example of it is this, ulver's second album, Kveldssanger.
This is definitely one of the most challenging albums ever. It defies the "rules" and characteristics of Black Metal, and pushes the boundaries of metal itself. It also takes the roots of Norwegian folk to another level, to an ethereal place where the machines and the traditional instruments fit perfectly, like made for each other.
In terms of creativity, this album is a river of harmony and power, flowing through a dark and fundamental atmosphere, amazingly created by its musical richness.
I highly recommend this album, not only to Black Metal fans, but to everyone who is into metal, and to everyone who claims to have a good taste in music. In a few words: Go buy it now!
