About this album

Bergtatt - Et eeventyr i 5 capitler is debut album by the Norwegian band Ulver.

Unlike the more straightforward black metal of their contemporaries, Ulver began their career by incorporating elements of Norwegian folk music, sometimes using acoustic guitars, melody-focused songwriting and clean vocals.

The lyrics are primarily in archaic Danish, while some parts are in Norwegian dialect. The acoustic aspects of the album were later isolated in their second release Kveldssanger, while the third album, Nattens madrigal, consists entirely of a “raw” black metal production and sound.

    Also, if you want the official song translations, they're: "Part I - Led Astray In the Forest Darke", "Part II - Betwixt Cragges A Descending Sunne", "Part III - She Senses Eyne of Grey", "Part IV - A Voice Beckons Her", and "Part V - Spellbound - Into the Mountains". Obviously not literal.

    This isn't the correct album title either, so it doesn't really matter.

    What's the deal with the absurdly translated song titles? First of all, the translations are completely wrong. Second, why translate at all?

    " Great to listen to while in the wilderness" I thought that's obvious. But you're right, anyway.

    I really think that the titles should be in english, the translation isn't accurate is it? I was told that the norwegian titles were all poetic lingo and didn't translate correctly.

    The little acoustic piece of Ind I Fjeldkamrene is the best part of this entire album.
