Evolutionary concept artists from Norway who have exaggerated and blurred the lines between every musical form they have enveloped. As unconventional as their approach to music has always been, the results have been consistently adherent and profound. In larval form, they torqued the genre of black metal with folk, jazz, and minimalism, offering the generally conservative genre some liberties it was once afraid to embrace. After completing their initial conceptual black metal trilogy, Ulver have continually evolved through several other genres, chiefly electronic and experimental, with the same elegance, intelligence and multiplicity that made their black metal offerings so different. Ulver have altered the way form can join and function in ways rarely sought. Retaining elements of their past, they now manipulate and extend the possibilities with a comprehensive understanding of the developing aural technologies.
