5 stars So nothing today is progressive you say?

Perhaps the most overlooked band in the music scene today is the genius that is ULVER, and more specifically, the mind of Garm/Trickster G.

Blood Inside is the culmination of years of sound development to create something that is truly refreshing and entertaining. Simply put, Blood Inside will blow you away with its sonic ecstacy and total lack of concern for normal sounds. It will challenge you, much in the same way that Pawn Hearts did(albeit, Garm's voice is completely different from Hammill's).

I believe that the beauty of this album is that you don't expect any of these parts to fit together, but nevertheless they work. Upon remembering what you just heard, you think, "that really doesn't go there, but for some reason, I like it". There is plenty here for fans of 70's symphonic prog to enjoy. Blood Inside is an experience that you should set aside time for, as its a one of a kind listen. Some important things to note though: there are very few guitars here, and a variety of sounds are used through electronic programming and etc.

The layering of sounds here is amazing, and you will be finding new things on each listen. Recommended for those looking for something refreshing and different from "typical prog". An invaluable listening experience.
