2 stars Ulver is a new Black Metal band here, with their approach to music being cold and raw, but however as compared to some of their Black Metal counterpatriots Darkthrone, Mayhem or Early Emperor, they take a much more, digestible melodic root to their sound by incorporating a lot of folk influences within their sound here and definitely making it accessible to non Black metallers fans like me.

However, this album is not recommended for everyone since of the heavy Black metal assault in some parts of the album. But of course, if you appreciate Folk Progressive Rock or a fan of heavier forms of Prog Metal like Edge of Sanity and Opeth, you are most likely recommended to take a listen if you are open-minded.

As I've said this album is not for everyone, It would be a 1.5 for Prog Rockers and a 3.5 for "more Metal loving" Prog Metallers. This is a good debut, probably the best debut in my opinion of any Black Metal band, but however, it could be better and the Rating of a 2.5 shows this.

King of Loss | 2/5 |
