Ulver release new EP

2017-11-12 by insomniac15 STAFF | 21 Comments
Norwegian group, Ulver released on November 11 a brand new EP, called Sic Transit Gloria Mundi, featuring three songs that were left unfinished during The Assassination of Julius Caesar recording sessions. As of now, this is only a digital release, but it will most likely receive a physical one as well.

The band's comment regarding Sic Transit Gloria Mundi is the following:

"The sad remains from our Caesarean banquet. Two songs we kind of left on the drawing board but resumed work on this summer. Additionally, a cover of a childhood favourite – one we actually started some twelve–thirteen years ago – from the time we first started thinking about making “pop” music. This EP was finalized in our new studio in the old town of Oslo in September, and sent off to Youth's (Martin Glover and Michael Rendall) in London in October, for imperial sound quality. Mastered this week by The Bricoleur.

Cover shows Francis Bacon's Study After Velásquez's Portrait of Pope Innocent X (1953), used with kind permission of Des Moines Art Center. Design by Paschalis Zervas, +wolframgrafik.
Thanks to David Hall and Vivek Venkatesh for their wonderful work on videos to accompany these two new songs, using footage from our concert at Labirinto della Masone, Italy, June 3rd. Also in order is a big shout out to Birk Nygaard, BN Visuals, for his general laser dementia and documenting this special occasion. Birk will join us on the road this November, and we hope to see some of you out there. Also with us, as usual, best FOH in the West, Chris Fullard.

A physical version is likely later. There's simply no time to prepare one right now, we have a tour to get ready for. But please keep an eye on the House of Mythology."

'Echo Chamber (Room of Tears)':



'Bring out Your Dead':



'The Power of Love':
