Ulver: New album incoming and Koko show confirmed

Big news for black metal sickos: after announcing the imminent arrival of a new studio album earlier this month, Ulver have confirmed a live date at London’s Koko on 22 March 2011 with support from Virus.

Ulver (meaning Wolves in Norwegian) release War of the Roses, a seven track album produced by John Fryer (Depeche Mode, Cocteau Twins, Swans), on 16 May 2011. It will be the first time that Ulver have released anything outside of their own Jester imprint.

Ulver were featured in Edwin Pouncey’s Subterranean Metal Primer in issue #252 of The Wire. For more info head here.


I know this is beyond the point, and 2 years too late but... "black metal sickos" - are you serious? This is pathetic. I mean did you even do your research? Ulver haven't been catagorised as Black Metal for years. Their musical metamorphosis and evolution has been significantly noted. Have you even heard War Of The Roses? Who even wrote this? I expect this shit from mainstream radio but not the Wire. Pay attention and pay your fucking respect. Ulver deserve it.
