Collaborators/Experts Reviews

Review by OpethGuitarist
2 stars More film experimentation.

Ulver once again stretches their creative fingers, with the genius of Garm leading the way. This one is more traditional (if Ulver's work can ever be called as such) in the manners and not as exploratory into the dark electronic themes as Lykantropen Themes was. It's somewhat similar to Perdition City, although I certainly wouldn't equate the two.

There are essentially no vocals here, which is somewhat of a downer as Garm's vocal work has always been nothing but spectacular in terms of his patterns, dynamics, and quality. The album is a soundtrack for the Norwegian film of the same name. Influences are broad and varied to fit the electronic landscape. Free Jazz, spatial music, etc. can all be found here.

I won't lie to you when I say this is one of their weaker releases post Black-metal era. However, I still find it quite intriguing, but a bit constricted given the context of fitting the film. Ulver would soon follow this with their my favorite and arguably their best alongside Perdition City, with the love/hate Blood Inside.

Review by Warthur
4 stars Another short and sweet soundtrack album from Ulver sees the band shifting into less electronic and more classical-based musical approaches than much of the material from Perdition City to this. Not that this is an unplugged album per se - it's just that there's a wider range of souds the band dip into, and more overt influence from classical music than on their recent releases. (You can hear actual stringed instruments from time to time, whereas those where rarities on Perdition City or Teachings In Silence). I suspect their experience working with this soundtrack led to the incorporation of more classical themes into their music on the subsequent Blood Inside, so as a transitional album between the Perdition City/Teachings In Silence era and Blood Inside it's a fascinating listen.
