Guest review by
Ulver is one of those bands that will never cease to either amaze or disappoint, and from where i stand, im always amazed.

We've seen Ulver create an album of straight forward and harsh black metal, and we've seen them release an album based entirely around acoustic guitars, clean vocals and a few other folkish elements. The album 'Bergtatt' falls somewhere in between the two, combining elements of both. While its not the most original sound ive heard, it sounds damn good.

Guest review by
Ulven i Manden
How can I describe and estimate album which was my first of Black/Folk Metal? Is it possible to be objective? When something like "Bergtatt - Et Eeventyr I 5 Capitler" describes how a classical Black/Folk Metal LP should sound, you probably guess that my opinion about this can't be objective. But "objective" is not a essence of the good review...

Checking out this cult album for real right now. So much Drudkh in here or rather Drudkh must have been influenced by Ulver.

And Agalloch... and Alcest. A whole bunch of bands were clearly influenced by Ulver's debut.

I personally love the clean vocals in the first song.

Can not imagine BM without this album!
Bergtatt sets BM standards so high that only few bands could reached this level of creativity and musicianship.

The first song on this album is fantastic but I do feel that it dips in quality after that (especially 'Graablick Blev Hun Vaer'). Still, this is a great folk/black metal album worthy of an 8.5/10 IMO (leaning slightly towards a 9).
