3 stars It's about time someone reviewed this one. This album is seriously not recommended for anyone. Unless you're a fan of raw, primitive black metal with the worst production you'll ever hear. I happen to be such a person. Although the sound might seem terrible at first, underneath there's an amazing black atmosphere, with great, catchy riffs and aggressive drumming. Nattens Madrigal is what one might call brutal music. Garm's vocals sound as evil as ever. But surprisingly if you scratch the surface a bit and forget the primitive sound, the guitar is actually pretty melodic and the band is not just blasting away nonsensically. The lyrics are about wolves, as the name suggests, and once again have a conceptual nature.

One of my favourite albums, but absolutely nothing to do with prog whatsoever, unless if you think of the fact that the progression from Bergtatt through Kveldssanger to Nattens Madrigal is quite odd. And after this Ulver turned electronic. What a bizarre band, but a great one.

Generally 4 stars, but on a prog site only 3.
