5.0 out of 5 stars A Must For Black Metal Fans 4 May 2006
Format:Audio CD
I dont really know what to say as this album has two halfs- One of Black Metal, The other more acoustic and peaceful.

The black metal though is different not just growls and screeches, but beautiful singing and some female singing background singing.

This is a very short album though roughly 35 minutes, but it is of sheer quality and you know they put alot of effort into this. The black metal side is amazing, but different to normal- it has more melody than most. With acoustic guitars, showing such contrast from harsh aggressive music to beautifull music. But even the singiner in black metal songs like 'I Troldskog faren vild' he has a beautiful clear voice, sort of echoing. His range of styles is amazing as his black metal style is very good, maybe rivalying the greatest singers in the genre.

I would suggest this to any metal fan really- if you like black metal or acoustic metal, then just BUY IT- it has so much to offer.

With "Bergtatt" ULver have created a very original, if short (35 mins) black metal adventure. The combination of screams and eerie singing work great and each of the 5 songs takes you to the misty forests of norway. The recording quality could be better, but the overall feel of the album makes it one not to miss if you like atmospheric metal, like me.

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing,simple as that really 18 Jan 2007
By sean paul mccann VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Ulver,meaning wolf in norwegian,indeed thats where the band are from relaeased bergtatt,meaning forest taken,in 1995 and in doing so released something ahead of its time,clean vocals thrown in after screams,much like metalcore which followed a few years later,this is not metalcore of course,its black metal but yet has other elements thrown in such as acoustic guitars,piano,flute and angelic female vocals which send shivers flying and all this is wrapped up in under 35 minutes.

Album opener, Capitel I - I Troldskog Faren Vild is an epic piece containing a catchy riff peppered with clean vocals throughout,they are echoey and trancey in ways,kinda as if a choir of monks is singing the words,which are sung in danish,but its only one man,this is an excellent introduction to the album.The style changes on the next track with a faster,more metal style with black metal singing during the verse and clean soaring vocals throughout the chorus,truly glorious.

The third track is immense as well mixing various styles and also has a piano led section where you hear the sounds of a woman running and she is scared,chilling,the fourth track is an acoustic number with a haunting female voice singing in places and the final track,Capitel V - Bergtatt - Ind i Fjeldkamrene,is simply sublime with frantic drumming and yards of melody and a female voice ringing throughout,this is truly jaw dropping.

Ulver here have released one of the great albums of all time and anyone with an ear for glorious and epic metal shouldnt be without,these days ulver are a weird bunch playing electronic stuff but this is sublime and a true great.
