After months of work the long-awaited box sets of ULVER have finally been sent off to the pressing plants. The title of the box already gives a glimpse of what to expect: "Trolsk Sortmetall 1993 - 1997" presents the formative (metal) years of ULVER. It contains the albums "Bergtatt" (1994), "Kveldssanger" (1995) and "Nattens Madrigal" (1996), collectively known as "The Trilogie - Three Journeyes through the Read more [...] Norwegian Netherworlde" (released under this title as a 1000 ltd. ed. triple picture vinyl box set in 1997). Bonus contents will be the band's demo tape "Vargnatt" (1993), the rare compilation track "Synen" (Cthulhu Records 1997) as well as a recently unearthed 4-track rehearsal recording featuring tracks from "Nattens Madrigal".

With the exception of "Nattens Madrigal," which is still the ferocious beast it always was - but now with a slightly more compassionate re-mastering courtesy of Tom Kvålsvoll at Strype Audio, Oslo - all the material has been considerately re-mastered to analog tape by Jaime Gomes Arellano in Orgone Studios, London, and consulted by ULVER's mastermind Kristoffer Rygg. The test pressings have been wholeheartedly approved by all involved and we here at Century Media think they sound amazing!

104 pages of unpublished photos and paraphernalia, original Norwegian lyrics, presentations and their English translations, comments by the band as well as liner notes by Jon 'Metalion' Kristiansen (founder of Head Not Found Records and the man behind Slayer Mag), Chris Bruni (Profound Lore Records), Michael Moynihan (author of Lords of Chaos) and Mark Pilkington (Strange Attractor Press).
