ulver's music creates a visible world from unvisible chaos - that is what i understand listening to the best band in this universe

What a childish attitude to spit on the past or spit on today's sound.
If Ulver have proven one thing, that is their artistic integrity. And many few can compete with this.
They are just true to their heart, and find the right sound to express what they feel.
Although I love dark metal, every new Ulver cd was always welcome to my ears. I was never disappointed (ok, probably by "silencing the singing", but that's a matter of taste). They are still very drak, and their approach is still very heathen, pagan.
Thanks to Ulver I developped a taste for Dark Electro/Industrial/Ambient, when one can find atmospheres as dark, and probably even darker that the darkest Mayhem, Dark Throne or what so ever.
Get your ears on some Sophia, Puissance, Turbund Sturmwerk, A Challenge of Honour.
Speaking of artistic integrity, one other artist that can compete with Ulver is definitely Hagalaz Runedance (Andrea Nebelhexe Haugen, wife of Samoth). And thanks to her, I discovered Dark/Neo Folk.
Any comment is welcome.

MMMMMMMMM, this is probably one of the most interesting bands I have ever listened to. These guys managed to reach the limits of what's possible. First they were black metal, then they made a very good acoustic folk album, with I think the most beautifull male vocals I have ever heard. Then they made one of the rawest black metal albums ever made. And now they are operating in the ambient/techno/industrial area, which sounds indeed very nice. The new Ulver is full of rare melodies, sounds and samples. Together with Mortiis the only kind of Electronic music I really like. I don't think there is any other band who's able to play so many genres of music of such incredible quality.
Europagan ==>> thanks for the Hagalaz Runedance advice, sounds very nice.

I'd like to buy a record buy this band, but I'm undecided as to which one to buyy. Can anyone recommend a good example of their earlier black metal sound?

I'll take that as a no...
I bought Nattens Madrigal... a little more heay and raw than I was expecting, but still very good.

Bergtatt is great. It's mid-tempo black metal with one Kveldssanger-like folk interlude, called: "Een Stemme Locker." And the sound-quality is much, much better than that of Nattens Madrigal.

I don't really like Shadows of the Sun. Compared to Blood Inside anyway...
