Wars of the Roses is the eighth studio album by the Norwegian experimental collective Ulver. The album was produced by Ulver, with John Fryer and Jaime Gomez Arellano, and issued in April 2011 via Jester Records and Kscope, preceded by a single, "February MMX", in February. Wars of the Roses is the first album to feature new member, British composer and multi-instrumentalist Daniel O'Sullivan. Wars of the Roses amalgamates "musical traits from its predecessors while re-shaping them with a more direct approach". SputnikMusic noted "Wars of the Roses' thoughtful conception and execution serves only for a thoughtful listen. After all this time, it still remains a privilege to bear witness to these wolves evolve once again". Wars of the Roses was mixed by producer John Fryer, following a chance meeting outside Crystal Canyon studios, Norway, during the latter stages of recording. The album entered the Norwegian national album charts at Number 17, based on sales from one day alone, holding up for two subsequent weeks. It also entered the Finnish national album charts at Number 30 where it held up for one week.
