Ulver To Play At Norwegian Festival Of Literature

Experimental metal band Ulver has issued the following statement about playing at the upcoming Norwegian Festival of Literature:

"The Norwegian Festival of Literature proudly presents: ULVER LIVE AT MAIHAUGSALEN, LILLEHAMMER, SATURDAY MAY 30 2009

"Once amongst the pioneers of Norwegian black metal, now living legends of dark experimental music, ULVER are today 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 have since their first album been exclusively a studio band. This being their first live performance in 15 years, the concert at Lillehammer is a historic event.

"A statement from the band: Last year Mr. Stig Sæterbakken approached us with an offer to play live at the Norwegian Festival of Literature, and after long consideration we have decided to accept the invitation. We go to the job with great humility and horror. Ulver, Oslo, February 11 2009.

"NOTE: Limited number of tickets. Reservation can be found here."

I loves me some Ulver, but can anyone really call them an "experimental metal band" anymore? Shadows of the Sun is a great record, but it sure as hell isn't a metal record.

I don't even think they called it 'experimental metal' I think they just said 'experimental'
