Preorder: Ulver - Hexahedron - Live at Henie Onstad Kunstsenter

Recommended Posts




I'm not even sure what this sounds like (you never really do with Ulver), but the description was interesting enough to convince me to pull the trigger. I thought their Drone Activities project was good, so I'm very intrigued by this.

I've been listening to my copy for the past week. The pressing is impeccable so that definitely helps. I like all of it, but I'm not sure if it's that strong as an album (it's a bit like ATGCLVLSSCAP in that regard). They're an odd band because they make a lot of missteps, but I think they do everything with a degree of integrity, which makes it easier to accept the less-than-stellar output as a vital part of the experience.

Listening to this now and am actually really liking it.  That said, I'm not a huge fan of most of new Ulver.  I guess I like more of their droney experimental stuff and the first-3 albums.

I’m actually quite the opposite. Bergtatt is the only black metal release I revisit a lot. I love a lot of the stuff from William Blake - Shadows of the Sun, especially the releases that are vocal heavy. With Messe I lost a little interest but I’m a big fan of the new synth pop direction on Assassination and Flowers of Evil. Whatever Ulver does though is usually at the very least interesting.
