ULVER Performs Live For First Time In 15 Years; Video Available

May 31, 2009

Progressive Norwegian black metal band ULVER performed for the first time in 15 years yesterday (Saturday, May 30) at the Norwegian Festival of Literature at Maihaugsalen in Lillehammer, Norway.

Fan-filmed video footage of the concert can be viewed below.

Once among the pioneers of Norwegian black metal, now living legends of dark experimental music, ULVER is one of Norway's most acclaimed international artists. While remaining something of a secret treasure back home, a long series of strong releases, most recently the album "Shadows of the Sun" (2007),has earned them a unique status worldwide.

ULVER has, since its first album, been exclusively a studio band. This being their first live performance in 15 years, the concert at Lillehammer was a historic event.

The group previously stated about yesterday's concert: "Last year Mr. Stig Sæterbakken approached us with an offer to play live at the Norwegian Festival of Literature, and after long consideration we have decided to accept the invitation. We go to the job with great humility and horror."
