Ulver at Islington Assembly Hall, London - live review
Venue: Islington Assembly Hall, London
Norwegian experimentalists team up with Jaga Jazzist man Stian Westerhus for one night only in London
Make no mistake: Ulver’s The Assassination Of Julius Caesar is a sublime album. But the Norwegians’ long journey from eerie, folklore-inspired black metal into something entirely disconnected from their early days – where sumptuous, uplifting instrumentation mixes with the giddy kick of the dancefloor – presents something of a problem: how do you make this stuff work live?
