Ulver Announce New Album “Flowers Of Evil” & Book ‘Wolves Evolve: The Ulver Story’


Ulver‘s new studio album “Flowers Of Evil” has been announced for an August 28th release date. The band’s camp offered the following insight as to what you can expect from it:

‘In the midst of the forest, the floor is littered with monstrous heads and mythical figures, frozen in torturous combat or threatened by wild beasts. A dragon fights a dog and a wolf. A lion sinks its teeth into the fire-breathing monster’s chest.

This sacred grove, near Bomarzo in Lazio, Italy, reveals the nightmare vision of Vicino Orsini, a sixteenth century nobleman. It’s a forest of symbols, suggesting a civilisation overrun by the beasts, demons and monsters of the primordial world. Soon after Orsini’s death, trees began to close in on these many peculiar beings, and green moss would eventually seize them. Slowly, nature finished what he had started.

Flowers of Evil‘, the new studio album from ‘Ulver‘, finds the wolf pack exploring the fear and wonder of mankind’s fall from redemption. Visions similar to those of Orsini come to mind, as untamed life abounds…’

Both “Russian Doll” and “Little Boy” were released as singles earlier this year. Also newly announced from the band is ‘Wolves Evolve: The Ulver Story‘. That 336-page book finds the group reflecting on their 25-year plus history with the band stating of it:

“We’ve been talking about making a book – the Ulver story – for years. First for our 15th anniversary, then for our 20th anniversary, and now, after well over a quarter of a century, the time has come. We’ve been riding this beast for the greater part of our lives, and the future is not what it used to be.”

The book will also be published on August 28th. Pre-orders are available here.
