Looks like this was announced back in April but I’m only finding out about it now. Century Media are releasing Trolsk Sortmetall 1993-1997, a box set of Ulver’s early Black Metal albums on the 17th November (UK Release date). Available as a 5CD or 4LP set containing the Vargnatt demo, Bergtatt, Kveldssanger, the infamously necro Nattens Madrigal album and previously unreleased 4-Track rehearsal recordings from the Nattens Madrigal sessions which make up the fifth CD (or a bonus cassette if you buy the vinyl box). The boxes come packaged with a hardcover book featuring memorabilia, lyrics (with translation) and liner notes from various contributors, most notably Jon “Metalion” Kristiansen: the man behind Slayer Mag and the founder of the Head Not Found label that originally issued these albums. Until now I’ve only owned these albums on mp3 but I’ve wanted them on CD for years now. This box set is a must buy for me.
US pre-orders are available now at the CM Distro site. The Europe site doesn’t seem to have a pre-order option up yet but I have pre-ordered a copy at Amazon. A fantastic release for anyone out there that doesn’t already own these essential Black Metal classics.
