The SUNN Also Rises

The dark lords of doom Sunn O))) team up with Norwegian genre-benders Ulver, whose 2013 release Messe I.X-VI.X was #2 in mxdwn’s Top 40 Albums of 2013. The resulting supergroup has graced their devout minions with a new slab of vinyl (and CD and DL), called Terrestrials. This surprisingly beautiful release was purportedly spawned during an all-night improvisational recording session that took place following Sunn O)))’s performance at the 2008 Øya festival in Norway. Then, it had to age for five and a half years to allow earthlings the time to develop the ability to appreciate the progressive brilliance that is this recording. Read more…

Emotionally Intelligent, Icy

A journey is expressed in this album, a wayward trek through Ulver’s native land of ice and snow. Ever changing and constantly growing, Ulver has hung in there over the years to come back with a symphonic EP. This album is haunting and infectious, absolutely beautiful and complex with a clear emotional intelligence. Messe I.X-VI.X is a must-have album. Dare we go as far as call it a masterpiece? We dare.

Ulver – Childhood’s End

June 9th, 2012

ULVER

The Past Comes Alive

What sort of band starts by playing melodic black metal, segues into symphonic-avant-garde-electro-hip-hop-anything, and finally ends up with an album of 1960’s psychedelic rock covers? “No such band exists” would be the logical answer, but it would also be wrong.
