The Assassination of Julius Caesar
The Assassination of Julius Caesar is the eleventh studio album by Norwegian experimental collective Ulver, released on April 7, 2017, via London-based label House of Mythology. The album was recorded and produced by Ulver in Oslo throughout summer 2016 and winter 2017 with mixing by Martin Glover and Michael Rendall in London, January 2017.
Riverhead is an original motion picture soundtrack album by Norwegian experimental collective Ulver for Justin Oakey’s 2016 film of the same name. The album was issued in December 2016 via House of Mythology.
The music was composed by Ulver, this time consisting of Ole-Henrik Moe, Kristoffer Rygg, Kari Rønnekleiv, Jørn H. Sværen, and Tore Ylwizaker and recorded, edited, and mixed by Kristoffer Rygg and Tore Ylwizaker at Oak Hill studios, Oslo, between June–July 2016.

ATGCLVLSSCAP is the tenth studio album by Norwegian experimental collective Ulver. Written, performed and produced by Ulver, the album was released on 22 January 2016 via newly formed, London-based label House of Mythology.
The music was culled from multitrack recordings made at twelve different improvisatory "free rock" live shows the band performed in February 2014, and later edited and enhanced in the studio by Daniel O'Sullivan. The album has been described as "Ultimately a piece of work that exists above and beyond any conventional live recording, rather a hallucinatory travelogue as potent an experience to bear witness to as it was to construct."
On 30 October 2015 the song "Cromagnosis" was broadcast on Baba Yaga’s Hut via online radio station Resonance FM, and later uploaded to Mixcloud.
The song "Moody Stix" features samples from the song "Doom Sticks" from A Quick Fix of Melancholy. "Glammer Hammer" reinterprets "Glamour Box" from Messe I.X-VI.X. "Nowhere" is a new arrangement of "Nowhere/Catastrophe", and "Ecclesiastes" reinterprets the ending of "Tomorrow Never Knows"; both original songs are from Perdition City.
Childhood's End is a compilation album of cover songs by Norwegian experimental collective Ulver. Produced by Ulver, the album was recorded live in Crystal Canyon Studios, Oslo, over two sessions, in autumn 2008 and summer 2011, and issued in May, 2012 on Jester Records under exclusive license to Kscope.
The album is a collection of covers of "60s psychedelic chestnuts, ” a reinterpretation of mostly obscure 1960s psychedelia, intended by Ulver as a reflection on lost innocence.
In a Kscope video interview, Kristoffer Rygg commented, “I grew up with parents who were still listening to music from the time, so it informed my childhood, and it has become an ever increasing geeky sort of fetish since then.“ Adding, “My feeling is that most people's knowledge sort of limits itself to The Doors. The Doors were cool, but there was so much else going on… in the underground, records that got lost and didn't get as much recognition as they deserved in my opinion. We wish to be ambassadors for things that we love and we sort of hope that we can open some gates with the record.”
Wars of the Roses
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.
Blood Inside is the sixth full-length studio album by Norwegian experimental collective Ulver.

The album sees Ulver return to more classically-based arrangements and instrumentation.
The coda on “It Is Not Sound" is based on Toccata and Fugue in D Minor by Bach. The lyrics for "Christmas" were adapted from the poem of the same name by Portuguese author Fernando Pessoa, written in 1922.
A video clip for "It Is Not Sound" was issued on May 2, 2005, via The End Records’ website, along with audio samples from Blood Inside.

Produced by Ulver on mobile equipment in Oslo, Norway and Stockholm, Sweden in May 2002 for the Swedish short film Lyckantropen, the album was issued in November 2002 via Jester Records. Lyckantropen Themes is Ulver's first foray into film soundtrack music, although musically it has continuity with their previously released EPs, Silence Teaches You How to Sing and Silencing the Singing. The soundtrack has been described as “ambiguous moods and lurking-in-the-shadows electronic ambiances, setting the alternately suspenseful and melancholy mood of the soundtrack.”
The soundtrack was nominated for a Spellemannprisen in 2002; an award presented to Norwegian musicians, in the 'Open Class' category.
The film’s DVD release features an interview with Kristoffer Rygg and Jørn H. Sværen, entitled Shape Shifting - The 1st Decade of Ulver.

Perdition City continues the experimentation heard on Themes from William Blake's The Marriage of Heaven and Hell and Metamorphosis, containing elements of trip hop, jazz, ambient music, spoken word and electronica, the combination being described as "moody", "atmospheric", and "cinematic in scope". The album received positive reviews upon release, with Kerrang! noting, "This ain't rock 'n roll. This is evolution on such a grand scale that most bands wouldn't even be able to wrap their tiny little minds around it."
Nattens Madrigal – Aatte Hymne Til Ulven I Manden is the third studio album by Norwegian band Ulver, issued on 3 March 1997 via Century Media. Composed and arranged during the first half of 1995, Nattens is a concept album about wolves, the night, the moon, and the dark side of mankind.

The album was issued by Jester Records on September 15, 2003. The music is more elaborate than the abstract minimalism of Lyckantropen Themes. Stated on the sleeve: “Music for and Inspired by Svidd neger as perceived by Ulver. What you hear is not strictly what you see. All for the director in you.”
Svidd neger is Ulver’s first score for a full-length feature film, the controversial Norwegian film Svidd Neger. The songs are lush and dense, generally laidback but sinister, at times more musical and orchestral, while other elements are more minimal and atmospheric.
Live at Roadburn
Live At Roadburn is a live album by Norwegian experimental collective Ulver. Produced by Ulver, the album was recorded at the Roadburn Festival, held at 013, Tilburg, in the Netherlands on April 12, 2012, and issued in April 2013 via Roadburn Records.
Rygg commented on the release, “This was our pre-release party for the commemorative album Childhood's End, which we had just sewn up when we received the invitation from Roadburn. A one-shot psychedelic blowout or perhaps some sort of karaoke for our vestigial veterans; felt quite invigorating after the doom and gloom of the last few years. We gathered the guys who were involved in the album sessions and rehearsed the songs a couple of days before travelling to Tilburg. Not in total control, but that’s the spirit. Haywire lycanthropy.”
Commenting on Ulver’s performance at Roadburn Festival, Jamie Thomson, writing for The Quietus, said, “I was placing a lot of faith in Ulver but ultimately I was to be disappointed.

Sic Transit Gloria Mundi EP
A Quick Fix Of Melancholy EP
A Quick Fix of Melancholy is the fourth EP by Norwegian experimental collective Ulver. Produced in the Winter of 2002, the EP was issued on 26 August 2003 via Jester Records. A precursor to the album, Blood Inside, A Quick Fix of Melancholy showcases the band's ability to seamlessly combine ambient and electronic music with orchestral elements.
The text from “Vowels” is by Canadian author Christian Bök, taken from Eunoia and used with permission. “Eitttlane” is a rearrangement of “Nattleite” from 1996 album Kveldssanger.
In an interview with Modern Fix Kristoffer Rygg commented, “A Quick Fix of Melancholy was our way of trying to get back into writing songs—or something resembling songs—and also find out where we wanted to take things. I think after all our work with film, which is very kind of aesthetically fixed, you know. We ended up making Blood Inside.”
