Although Ulver’s first three albums are often called their “Black Metal Trilogie”, they are quite diverse in musical styles, with only two of them belonging to the black metal genre. The archaic Danish lyrics of the first album and Norwegian lyrics of the next two albums were inspired by Scandinavian folktales.

Bergtatt - Et Eeventyr i 5 Capitler is considered to be a folk-themed black metal album for its occasionally fast tempo, distorted electric guitars and croaky screaming vocals intermitted with melodious acoustic passages with clean vocals, and having a fantasy storyline. Bergtatt - Et eeventyr i 5 capitler ("Spellbound - A Fairy Tale in 5 Chapters" is the debut album by the Norwegian band Ulver. Black metal is an extreme subgenre of heavy metal.

A troll is a fearsome member of a race of creatures from Norse mythology. A legendary creature is a mythological or folkloric creature (often known as "fabulous creatures" in historical literature The narrative of the album’s lyrics follows a maiden as she becomes so mountain-taken. The subtitle translates as “A Tale in 5 Chapters”. Bergtatt features a melancholic, fully acoustical song “Een stemme locker” (“A Voice Beckons”).
Kveldssanger, Ulver’s second album, contrasts with Bergtatt as it uses classical guitars, cello and chamber chants, completely eschewing the metal elements of Bergtatt, while still having a folk theme. Kveldssanger ( Twilight Songs) is the second album by Norwegian band Ulver. The violoncello (abbreviated to cello, or 'cello, plural cellos or celli —the c is tʃ Garm has since remarked that Kveldssanger was an “immature attempt at making a classical album. ” Garm later clarified this by saying that the performance was immature, yet the content is strong when their youth is taken into account. 
The third album, Nattens Madrigal (“Madrigal of the Night”), saw the band returning to a black metal style similar to Bergtatt. Nattens madrigal - Aatte hymne til ulven i manden ( Madrigal of the Night - Eight Hymns to the Wolf in Man) is the third album by Norwegian Black A madrigal is a type of Secular vocal music composition written during the Renaissance and early Baroque eras Bergtatt - Et eeventyr i 5 capitler ("Spellbound - A Fairy Tale in 5 Chapters" is the debut album by the Norwegian band Ulver.

The album is intentionally underproduced, akin to Darkthrone’s Transilvanian Hunger, with buzzing guitars and rather muffled drums. In the Music industry, a record producer or music producer has many roles among them controlling the recording sessions coaching and guiding the musicians organizing DarkThrone is a Massive Online Text Based Game developed by Lazarus Software Transilvanian Hunger is the fourth album by Norwegian Black metal band Darkthrone. There are rumors surrounding this album and its recording, the most famous being that the band recorded this album in a forest. Another and less-known rumor is that the band purposely recorded the album on a four-track cassette recorder and used the money that Century Media gave them for other things, like Armani suits, haircuts, cocaine, beer, and/or a new car. Century Media Records (CMR is an independent rock Record label with offices in the United States, Brazil, Germany, Fashion career From 1961 to 1970 Armani worked as a designer in well-known fashion house Nino Cerruti Jimenez after which he left to pursue freelance work Garm has since confirmed that the band has expensive tastes. 
Themes from William Blake's The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, released in 1998, was different from what Ulver, or even any other band, had made before. Themes from William Blake's The Marriage of Heaven and Hell is the fourth album by Norwegian experimental band Ulver. Tore Ylwizaker, a new composer and sound architect, added to Garm’s expanding artistic visions and together they stepped over the boundaries of black metal aesthetics, creating a genre-defying work often associated with avant-garde metal. Avant-garde metal or experimental metal is a subgenre of Heavy metal music characterised by the use of innovative Avant-garde elements large-scale In this album, the musicians blended electronics, industrial music elements, progressive metal and avant-garde rock, adding ambient passages. Electronic music is music that employs Electronic musical instruments and Electronic Music technology in its production Industrial music is a loose term for a number of different styles of Experimental music, especially but not necessarily Electronic music.

The Marriage of Heaven and Hell is one of William Blake 's Books a series of texts written in imitation of biblical books of prophecy but expressing Blake's Despite confounding and perhaps alienating many fans of the band’s first three albums, the album received widespread acclaim from critics within both the rock/metal and alternative music press. For instance, it was reviewed as album of the month in several high-profile magazines such as Terrorizer, Metal Hammer, and Rock Hard. Terrorizer is an Extreme music Magazine published by Dark Arts Ltd Metal Hammer (sometimes MetalHammer) is a monthly heavy metal magazine in the United Kingdom, Ireland and in Germany It also ranked very high at many year’s best polls that same year.
Ulver’s next two releases, the EP Metamorphosis and full-length album Perdition City, were even more experimental and pensive than 'Themes….

Perdition City Music to an Interior Film is the fifth Studio album by Norwegian band Ulver. A disclaimer on Metamorphosis reads: “We are as unknown to you as we always were. ” The band had moved further away from rock and metal and into a more ethereal style, much like that of Coil. The use of programmed sound and atmospheric style is dominant here, unlike the previous albums. Programming is a form of Music production and performance using Electronic devices often sequencers or Computer programs to generate music Neo-classical composer and film scorer Craig Armstrong may have been an influence on Ulver as his use of electronics and hip hop beats over strings and pianos is somewhat reminiscent of Ulver’s later works. Craig Armstrong may refer to Craig Armstrong (composer Craig Armstrong (footballer Hip hop is a cultural movement which developed in New York City in the 1970s primarily among African Americans and Latinos.
Perdition City combined many of their influences into a comprehensive painting of a desolate city filled with ghosts.
The band followed up these two releases with two minimalist/ambient/glitch works Silence Teaches You How to Sing and Silencing the Singing.

Silencing the Singing is an EP by Norwegian Avant-garde / Black metal band Ulver. These works featured minimal melodies and often had subtle, weird and unnatural noises within the song structures. Due to their individual rarity, they were later amalgamated as Teachings in Silence. Teachings in Silence is a compilation by Norwegian Avant-garde band Ulver.
Having proved their proficiency at making atmospheric music, Ulver were hired to make music for cinema films like Lyckantropen (see Lyckantropen Themes), Svidd neger (see Svidd neger (soundtrack)), and Uno. Lyckantropen ( 2002) is a Swedish Short film written and directed by Steve Ericsson.

In 2003, Ulver began making more symphonic music. A symphony is a Musical composition, often extended and usually for Orchestra.

In July 2004, the band finished recording their sixth album, Blood Inside, which was released on June 6th, 2005. Blood Inside is the sixth full-length album by the Norwegian experimental band Ulver. With Blood Inside the band stepped away from the more minimal styles they had been experimenting with previously. Bringing back more traditional rock instruments like guitar and acoustic drums (since 1998 the band had used primarily digital drums and sampled beats) and combining them with real and synthetic classical instruments, brass horns, and sound samples, the band created something they had never done before. Managing to fuse genres ranging from rock, classical, minimalism, electronica and vintage Progressive rock with Garm’s broad vocal range, Ulver created an album that was far beyond anything anyone has heard in the avant-garde scene. Rock music is a genre of Popular music often though not necessarily employing Electric guitar, Bass guitar, and Drums.
