Ulver: Shadows of the Sun (5/5)

#2 out of 10
Non-Metal Album of 2007

: 2007
Label: Jester
Genre: Dark Minimalism
TRT: 48:47

Ulver makes gorgeous music. Whether it's traditional Norwegian folk, electronically enhanced trip-hop, dark ambient or sludge metal, and their ninth full-length offering is true to form. Going back to their Silence… era sound, the blueprint is expanded into a more lush, minimalist framework of sounds, soothing and comforting while remaining entirely morose and melancholic. Thought-provoking and reflective, this is a record for dark nights and a glass of wine.
