Progressive Norwegian black metal band ULVER has been confirmed for this year's Brutal Assault festival, set to take place August 6-8 in Pevnost, Josefov, Czech Republic.
The festival billing is shaping up as follows:
ASHES YOU LEAVE
BENEATH THE MASSACRE
BLACK BOMB A
THE RED CHORD
WALLS OF JERICHO
WAR FROM A HARLOTS MOUTH
ULVER performed for the first time in 15 years on May 30, 2009 at the Norwegian Festival of Literature at Maihaugsalen in Lillehammer, Norway.
Fan-filmed video footage of the concert can be viewed below.
Once among the pioneers of Norwegian black metal, now living legends of dark experimental music, ULVER is one of Norway's most acclaimed international artists. While remaining something of a secret treasure back home, a long series of strong releases, most recently the album "Shadows of the Sun" (2007), has earned them a unique status worldwide.
ULVER has, since its first album, been exclusively a studio band. This being their first live performance in 15 years, the concert at Lillehammer was a historic event.
