As their only German tourdate of 2014, Norwegian metal-jazz-ambient-drone fusion band play a special live show at Lido this February. The concert marks 20 years of the bands history so is not to be missed. Ulver (Norwegian for “wolves”) is a musical group from Norway. Since their first, folklore-influenced black metal release entitled Bergtatt – Et eeventyr i 5 capitler (1994), Ulver’s musical style has been fluid and increasingly eclectic, blending genres such as rock, electronica, symphonic and chamber traditions, noise and experimental music into their oeuvre, but with a heavy reliance on electronic recording techniques.

In July 2004, the band had recorded their sixth album, Blood Inside, which was released on June 6, 2005. Bringing back more traditional rock instruments like guitar and acoustic drums, combining them with classical instruments, brass horns, and their rich electronic inventory.

Ulver also joined the drone band Sunn O))) on a fifteen-minute track which appears on Sunn O)))’s WHITEbox box set, released in 2006. Additionally, the trio had announced back in 2002 that they had been working on a string remake of Nattens madrigal, but Garm later stated on the message board of his alternative rock band, Head Control System, that the project “is in a state of total dormancy.”
This event is highly recommended by Digital in Berlin! We are giving away 2 x 1 tickets. Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Ulver” as the subject.
