Ulver, one of the most shape-shifting bands of the moment, steps into the spotlight again.
Not yet confirmed by the band, it seems that the “Flowers of Evil” tour will take place in 2020.
Ulver (Norwegian for “wolves”) are a Norwegian experimental musical collective founded in 1993, by vocalist Kristoffer Rygg. Their early works, such as debut album Bergtatt, were categorized as folklore-influenced black metal, but the band has since evolved a fluid and increasingly eclectic musical style, blending genres such as experimental rock, electronica, ambient, and experimental music. 1997 marked their international debut with the release of their third album Nattens madrigal through German label Century Media. Later on, Kristoffer Rygg formed his own imprint, Jester Records, in 1998.
The newest Ulver album, “Drone Activity“, was released in 2019 and it was “Something murky and liminal emerged, in sound and space” as the band stated.
The artwork of some of the European tour posters is inspired by a painting by Caravaggio, called ‘Judith Beheading Holofernes’ dated in 1598.
ULVER will release their new song “Russian Doll” on St. Valentine’s Day.
