The band then took the recordings back to Oslo and spent winter and spring in post-production, honing the material for its studio-equivalent. The album also echoes the early electronic experiments of EPs Silence Teaches You How to Sing and Silencing the Singingand is furthermore said to invoke the ghost of an abandoned Nattens madrigal renaissance-project. The Norwegian masters have evolved over the past two decades to cross an astonishing body of disciplines, taking in ambient, avant-garde, electronic, psychedelic, prog and jazz influences.
Now it is their electronic, atmospheric and classical sensibilities which come to the fore. In a short message to their fans — subtly alluding to the darkness of history — the band named some of their influences for Messe I. It haunted us for years and probably always will.

The title implies a VII. X to follow, and if that's the case they've succeeded in exciting and intriguing me. Recommended if you like the idea of a more classical, less electronic take on Ulver's post-rock era. Like a modern day King CrimsonUlver have never stayed in one spot for too long, always pushing towards uncharted territory even well into their maturity. While I'll always have a soft spot for 's Bergtatttheir decision to swerve away from their roots in black metal has given Ulver Waldviertler Nächte - Peter Ratzenbeck - Acoustically Yours much longer-lasting musical relevance than most of the bands from the Norwegian Second Wave.

A hurdy-gurdy carries on a sombre dirge over the crackle of distant gunfire and grim wartime ambiance. Although the exotic atmosphere makes for a slow start to the album, the track ultimately evolves into a more focused modern classical composition. Although first impressions had me yearning for a quicker start to the album, the track is damned near-perfect, both in its composition and execution.
Although Messe seems predominantly inspired by neoclassical composers, it most strongly gives the impression of being the soundtrack for a film that exists only in the listener's mind. Blending STK - Destrucktions - Complete Destrucktions experimentation with the neoclassical template, Ulver are exploring a fusion of genre I haven't had the pleasure of hearing before.
The resulting atmosphere is immense and futuristic. While Ulver may have been influenced by tradition and longheld conventions on MesseSon Of Man - Ulver With Tromsø Chamber Orchestra - Messe I.X-VI.X music is anything but.
In homage to Western classical tradition, Messe I. X adopts a liturgical theme, reflected in the work's solemn atmosphere, use of choirs, and minimal, religiously-oriented lyrics. Kristtofer Rygg's voice has remained a constant throughout Ulver 's work, and the common utterance of Rygg as one of the most powerful, diverse vocalists out there does not go unfounded.
Especially on Shadows of the Sunhis deep, gloomy vocals were profound and emotionally penetrating. Having been a fan of just about every vocal performance I've heard from him, it was all the more surprising and every bit unfortunate that Rygg's vocals seem out of place here on Messe.
