Ulver return with a new masterful studio album, commissioned for the Tromso Kulturhus, Norway, in cooperation with the Arctic Opera and Philharmonic Orchestra.
Starting out life as black metallers, Ulver became pillars of the modern avant-garde and more recently, their uncompromising experimentation led the Norwegian band to pure art rock. Their latest album, MESSE I.X–VI.X, is yet another expression of the extraordinary creativity of the band.
“We are at peace for now,” the band comments. “It is more quiet than normal. More modern than medieval. But there will always be rapture. Consecration and crying. The father, the mother … and ghosts. Shadows reverberates – it feels like a companion piece – and Silence’s erratic electronique. Sample culture. War and vulture. People hurt. In spite we love. Our children. We fear their future.”
This album is a modern classical music work; it includes six compositions, written, produced, recorded and mixed by Ulver.
Messe I.X – VI.X can be purchased on iTunes. The Messe I.X – VI.X mini-site can be found here.
