3 stars I was surprised to find this acoustic folk album from the repertoire of this eccentric Norwegian band, which I though was a pure black metal orchestra, but I was wrong (again). Moods are drawn towards the melancholic and solemn, as the Viking choir begins to sing. They are accompanied with classical guitars, flutes and strings, and these arrangements seem to be influenced by European classical music. About half of the songs are purely instrumental. The album works as a compact entity, and it's difficult to pick up any favorite tracks. Album covers are also neat. So this is an interesting record, and I hope that other fans of folk music would also find it.

3 stars My first review of many Ulver albums to come, a band that perhaps some of the wildest courses in music history. That aside, this is a great folk album. The second release shows this band has more than black metal in their roots. This album has a very romantic quality to it, with a peaceful and meandering acoustic which gives us a feeling of serenity.

Although a major change from Bergtatt, it has a haunting quality to it, and choir like vocals help guide the piece. This album certainly reminds me of Agalloch, another very melancholic sounding band. Very "foresty" music, for those who enjoy that type of sound.

The first real sign that Ulver is not your typical black metal band. An interesting album worth taking a look at or having for those dreary nights.

3 stars Kveldssanger is norwegian band Ulver´s second album. Ulver was at the time of the release considered a black metal band, so many people was surprised when they learned that Kveldssanger is a folky nordic acoustic guitar album with sporadic singing in the majestic nordic style. Retrospectively seen it´s not as surprising as it was back then. Ulver has over the years released many experimental prog rock/ metal/ eletronic albums so they can definitely not be considered a typical black metal band.

The music on Kveldssanger is very beatiful and very subtle for the most part. There are no growling vocals or anything remotely resembling black metal. Most songs are short acoustic guitar pieces while a few songs has singing and even fewer has drumming ( You can´t really call it drumming, it´s more like percussion). It´s not very exciting technically but it is beautiful. I heard a flute in one of the songs too and a cello, so the album is not trivial.

The musicianship is good and personal and Garm´s clean singing is always a joy.

The production is good. The music is very simple and I think the production suits the music well.

Even though this is definitely not my prefered taste I can´t help thinking that Kveldssanger is a good album. When you´re in the right mood it can send shivers down your spine, but if you´re not in the right mood it can seem a bit boring. I´ll go for a 3 star rating for this album.

3 stars One of the things I admire about Ulver is that they bring something entirely different with each album. It shows their great artistic freedom and willfulness. In ignoring all possible fan disappointment and genre box thinking, it testifies of an anti-social individualism that is one of the main features of Black Metal.

The musical result hasn't anything to do with black metal though. This is an entirely acoustic folk album heralding Nordic patriotism and in doing so adhering to the other main principles of black metal: paganism, nationalism and nostalgic idealization of the independence and glory of their Viking past. So philosophically this is pure black metal, musically it has nothing ado with it.

The 13 short tracks here contain music that should be listed under world or folk music if you would feel the need to classify it. Beautiful melancholic acoustic guitar picking, pagan chants, lots of atmospherics and quiet charm. This is an album for fans of Dead Can Dance or the Anathema spin-off Antimatter. I would even count in lovers of Nick Drake's ultimate album Pink Moon or anyone else interested in moody acoustic folk music.

The dramatic diction of the vocals can be a bit grating at first but in no time you'll go in search for a Viking helmet and wield your childhood sword around your living room. Yes, this calm acoustic campfire music evokes the strangest of images in me. Most songs are instrumental and all of them are peaceful and reflective, making this a perfect album to listen to in the darkness of winter nights just before you tuck in under the sheets. Just don't forget to hide your Viking gear before family members find it! 3.5 stars

PROG REVIEWER
4 stars I am a big softie for folk music, especially acoustic driven folk music. So when I discovered that Ulver's second album, Kveldssanger was an entirely acoustic affair, I was more than happy.

Kveldssanger takes a departure from Ulver's then typical melodic Black Metal style. There were glorious acoustic hints throughout Ulver's first album Bergtatt, alluding to the classical tone Ulver was later to use with Kveldssanger. Almost every track features a lovely classical acoustic, with a variety of strings, and some powerful, soothing chant like vocals courtesy of Garm. The atmosphere the album creates is very peaceful and relaxing, but it is also feels relatively intricate for such a simplistic compositional style. Kveldssanger is by no means a complex album - for that would be missing the point. Unfortunately, my Norwegian isn't what it should be, therefore some of the lyrical sections are lost upon me. Nonetheless, it is easy enough to ascertain that the album rotates around Norwegian folk tale themes of the forest.

Due to the relatively short nature of the tracks, and overall running time, Kveldssanger never feels too tired. Nor does it bore the listener with repetition - which is a good thing, given the relatively simplistic compositions and techniques Ulver use. This album is by no means great, nor would be especially interesting to everyone. But it has a unique charm, a charm that given the right moment, makes this quiet and unassuming album a more than worthy listen for any folk fan. Or indeed for those curious to see what lies amidst the dark Norwegian forests.

3 stars Early Neo-Folk Outing from Eclectic Tricksters

Ulver's KVELDSANGER is a left turn into the forest for the black metal group, a move that in 1995 was a bit prescient. Acoustic, wintery meanderings became a direct offshoot of the movement to the point that bands like Agalloch have made a career of trying to combine the two camps. The album is an all acoustic affair with medieval sensibilities, gothic choral vocals, and very pleasant guitar playing. It's not prog in any real sense, but it's a very fun listen. I'm probably rating this higher than it deserves on this site because it combines two of my most favoritest musical elements in the world: interweaving dark acoustic guitarwork and low male harmony vocals.

Those two elements dominate the album, and are competently performed. Neither delve into new territory, and the compositions don't really move much. There is some sense of contrast from section to section, song to song, but not enough that I can actually pick out one song from another. So with all this negative reviewing, why do I like it so much? At a most basic level, it sounds nice. I like these timbres, I like these instruments, I like this mood. And believe it or not, KVELDSANGER is "warmer" than alot of more modern neo-folk outfits like Tenhi where the ice can almost climb up your spine. The mood here is more like a sleepy afternoon after the leaves have all turned brown. It's not quite winter yet. So I guess that means August in Norway.

This is not an early version of Opeth's DAMNATION, which is a little of what I was looking for when I bought it. It is not prog-driven, it's a folk-related mood album. Again, for fans of arpeggiated acoustic guitar, a little acoustic soloing, and male harmony vocals, a nice litle treat. Otherwise, nothing really new. 3/5

4 stars Ulver's second album isn't a black metal album at all - it's a collection of acoustic folk compositions, with the focus mainly on acoustic guitar with very occasional drumming and chanted vocals. However, fans of black metal and folk alike may find this album a curious and unique piece for the atmosphere the pieces evoke - it's melancholic, mysterious, and when the choral vocals kick in also takes on a hint of pride and majesty. On the whole, black metal fans may find it presents an intriguing acoustic folk take on the same themes as Ulver's black metal releases, whilst folk fans may find its spooky and haunting atmosphere enjoyable.
