I know they started as a black metal band but their music has evolved into something much broader and wide ranging.
This concert has been recorded and shot beautifully. It starts with a slow ambient piece which sets the mood nicely and draws you into their world which is breath-takingly beautiful at times, at others quite harsh and shocking. There is a large backdrop to the stage onto which are projected images that complement the music. Without giving anything away these images are at times quite harrowing and shocking to say the least but are not shown gratuitously. The concert ends with another ambient piece as the audience emerge from their shocked silence and finally applaud the band who wave cheerily and depart.
All in all, it's great stuff.
When it comes to technical aspects, the video quality of Blu Ray on my 40-inch screen may not be ideal, but bearing in mind they've used a lot of SD clips, it's perfectly understandable and I'm not disappointed. As for audio quality, although it's not 5.1, it's lossless and I was amazed when I connected it to my hi-fi mini system.
It's just so bloody boring.
It hits the mark every once in a while. Sound and image unite and something special happens. But for the most part it's just a little bland & none of the songs I really wanted were on there. What few versions they did do were interesting, sometimes fine, but mostly just weaker versions of their studio recordings (many of my fave moments are down to serious multi-layering & that's obviously hard to replicate on stage)
Worth watching, but i'm a little gutted because I doubt i'll ever spin this again.
Nice packaging though...
Stay in the studio guys...

This wonderful DVD & Blu-Ray Set captures Ulver in all of their progress, from Themes From William Blake's The Marriage of Heaven and Hell to Shadows of The Sun. The band plays with an eerily precision that pervades through every song; this is art in every sense of the word. Garm's vocals really shine here, and he's every bit as impressive live as he is in the studio. Daniel O' Sullivan is also very impressive here, especially as a newcomer to Ulver. He plays with extraordinary grace - and in truth, so does the entire band.
Highlights include Eos, Not Saved, and the macabre For The Love of God. Listen to this with a good audio system and without distractions and I assure you that you will not be displeased.
It's dark. It's beautiful. It's ULVER.
This live performance, which up until its inception, was a very rare treat for fans of the band, was gorgeous darkness at its best. The synths, samples, crystal clear drums and haunting vocals all blend perfectly with the wide array of stock footage video displayed on the massive screen behind the band. It's an entirely unique and mind-expanding adventure that they take you on.
This band just keeps getting better and better. This DVD, however, is a crowning achievement that can't be beat! The performance of the spacey song Eos is utterly mesmerizing, and I could just watch and listen to that otherworldly, gorgeous tune repeatedly. This is an artistic masterpiece on par with Degas' Dancers, Fritz Lang's Metropolis, and the rest of the best available for your eyes and ears in this vast world of unlimited experiences just waiting for you to let them take you away to a faraway place.
I highly recommend buying this DVD! Do it! Stop reading this!! I'm just rambling now! GO! CLICK 'Add to cart' NOW!!!
This being a concert in the Norwegian Opera House, the video they played to accompany the music was confusing, inspiring, disturbing, and in the case of the song `For the Love of God'... out of place. It probably has to do with my Western or American sensibilities toward sex in art. I will not be spoiling anything by saying there are some edited pornographic clips during the performance of this song, along with some catastrophic images of bombs, dead people, etc.
The other part I didn't like about this performance was the old man at the beginning and at the end. What was that all about? I found both appearances of the old man quite disgusting, and not relevant to the music.
What I did like was the Pink Floyd/Portishead vibe I got from the concert. The audience reacted well, and the production of the video was top notch. The DVD and Blu-Ray have the same content, so you're not missing anything other than HD Video and Sound. The package is really nice. The exterior of the case is made out of cardboard with, inside it opens with the DVD on one side, the Blu-Ray on the other side. In the middle are the liner notes with photography. They did a good job at having professional packaging. I don't think the DVD or Blu-Ray are region locked, as I played both on my PS3 with no problem.
I'm okay with this purchase, but it's nothing really to write home about. I expected more from Ulver.
