Ulver: Messe I.X-VI.X (LP Lent Leather-bound edition, 2013, ltd 100)

Jester Records TRICK051

Used tags: , , ,

Price: €136.00

Lent Leather-bound edition limited to 100, solid purple 180 gram vinyls in a heavy leather gatefold sleeve individually made by hand. Comes with poster, 7" booklet, CD and card individually signed by the band. A new item, the leather cover is graded NM- because of a light dent to a couple of corners (see separate close-up pictures below). The vinyl is graded NM- because of a minor scuff mark from production. I have test-played the vinyl on the affected spot and was not able to hear any effect on playback. (Both 2 copies of this that I have seen had these light scuff marks, and others have reported the same issue on copies on Discogs, so this probably affects a number of copies of the  purple vinyl edition). The poster, booklet, and card are all in pristine shape, and the CD is still sealed.

"Ulver deliver one of their most ambitious and rewarding albums to date ... Overall Messe is a phenomenal album, combining intense atmosphere with the sort of cinematic sense of drama akin to some of the most powerful film scores." (Sputnik Music)

"A challenging work and an album of rare beauty." (The Quietus)

"This is a band that, in Messe, have not only created a stirringly brilliant example of the continuing power of imaginatively deployed classical instrumentation in the twenty-first century, but also a handbook to all the artists out there finding themselves devoid of inspiration." (Echoes And Dust)
