About this album

“Bergtatt - Et eeventyr i 5 capitler” (“Taken Into the Mountain - A Fairy Tale in 5 Chapters”) is the debut album by the Norwegian band Ulver. Contrary to 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 bits are in dialectal Norwegian.

The acoustic aspects of the album would later be isolated in their second release “Kveldssanger”, while the third album, “Nattens Madrigal – Aatte Hymne Til Ulven I Manden”, consists entirely of a “raw” black metal production and sound.

All songs written and composed by Ulver.
