"Bergtatt" hit the Metal-underground like a bomb in 1994, because there had been no band sounding like ULVER on this album before...
The opener "I Troldskog Faren Vild", for example, is completely made up by clean vocals, while the music is very melodic and not too heavy, only the guitars could be called Black Metal-influenced. But the second track is unleashing the full Black-ish force, also in the vocals, but time and again highly melodic passages with the unique clean voice break through the aggression.
In the melodies you will also find many Folk-influences, which only add yet another facet to the ULVER-ish Black Metal, making the band stand out even more in the musical uniformity of the scene.
Who wants to hear some melodic Black Metal of the different kind and also wants to re-witness the beginning of an extraordinary band, will find the right album in "Bergtatt"!
