masterpiece set to music. It took me many listens to fully appreciate what Ulver were attempting to do. The experimental fusion of avant-garde, metal, industrial, progressive ambience and spoken word mirrors the infusion of conflicting and progressive thinking that Blake offered in his writing.
The album features guest vocal contributions from Ihsahn (Emperor / Peccatum), Samoth (Emperor / Zyklon) and Fenriz (Darkthrone).
Songs of Note: It's a double concept album, 19 tracks. Too many to choose from.
