Norwegian avant-garde black metal/electronic outfit Ulver is preparing something special for their fans, as they just recently announced that they’ll be re-issuing one of the band’s earliest recordings this December.
The release, titled Vargnatt, is a demo tape from 1993. It will be reissued via Peaceville Records and will be available to purchase on December 8. According to the band, the re-issue will be based on audio sourced directly from the band’s DAC system.
Regarding the demo, Ulver vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Kristoffer “Garm” Rygg said Vargnatt is a snapshot of time that dates back to the band’s earliest efforts back when its members were just teenagers.
“This is the first thing ever recorded as Ulver. Wikipedia says it’s our second demo, but it’s our first and only one. Stovner, Oslo, 1993, two–three days, wham, bam, thank you mam, with very little or no experience. We were kids, 17–19 years old, testing the waters. Vocals and some strange musical choices aside, I have to say I’m way less ashamed of this now than I probably was in the nineties, and I have to smile at the fact that this recording is still a thing 30 years on.
It fills me with joy (and some sadness) to listen back to the crazy whims and things we had going on, preserved relatively pristinely. Peaceville, prime purveyor of many of our favourite records back then, is doing a stellar job reissuing some of these old underground tapes. So, after a few limited editions, ‘why the hell not’, right?”
As previously mentioned, Vargnatt will be available on December 8 via Peaceville Recordings, but you can preorder your copy today.
