Warthur
Ulver's debut album is categorised as black metal solely because Bergtatt visits that territory more regularly than any other. But when you have this strange mixture of atmospheric black metal pitched to emphasise a sense of cold otherworldliness as opposed to the aggression of bands such as Mayhem, interspersed with folky acoustic guitar which occasionally moves into the spotlight for a folk interlude, vocals shifting constantly between typical black metal shrieks, strange intonations, and more or less clean singing, and all the other features the band cram into this album, it's clear that what we're dealing with here is a group at the very edge of the avant-garde of black metal as it existed at the time.
