Norwegian Folk Black Metal 1995 Masterpiece, Kveldssasnger, is roughly translated as "Twilight Songs" For Kveldssanger, the second part of what has become known as Ulver’s “Black Metal Trilogie,” the band expanded upon the quiet, folk-influenced acoustic elements present in their debut album, Bergtatt. Incorporating classical guitars, cello and choral chamber chants overlaid with subtle orchestral landscapes - eschewing any black metal elements - the album was a drastic contrast to Bergtatt and other black metal albums of the time, whilst still retaining a level of atmospheric and folklore-themed lyrics. Vocalist Kristoffer Rygg has since remarked that Kveldssanger was an "immature attempt at making a classical album", yet he felt the content was strong when his age and that of the other band members at the time was taken into account. At the time of its release the album was praised for its atmosphere, evoking a feeling of "quiet, eerie solitude".=
