Ulver: Live and in Color


9 fév. 2010, 17h17m

After 15 years of being a studio band Ulver has returned to stage and yesterday I had the chance to see them live in Berlin. Experiencing Ulver live is like a car crash: The first hours afterward you remember hardly anything and only a awkward numbness tells you that something important has happened. Now, with some hours distance the memories creep in: The moody tunes of Eos, the grim pictures with Operator and the all encompassing barrage of light and video. My personal favorite was the intense performance of Not Saved that almost brought me to tears.

There are several bootlegs of the tour available, but most fail to present the athmosphere that was present.

When I first heard that Ulver would perform live again, I was skeptical, but the performance was just astounding. Although Ulvers songs are very complex and usually involve several layers of electronica and instruments they have been arranged and enhanced to work on stage. In addition the band works very well and the hole concert has a very tight atmosphere.

If you have the chance to see them, you should defiantly do it! I strongly hope i will not another 15 years till the next tour, but with the tricksters you never know.
