    You shouldn't start with Ulver, you should start with Arcturus as Arcturus is a bit easier to digest at first. I would suggest you proceed with Arcturus + Ulver albums in this order:

    Arcturus - The Sham Mirrors
    Arcturus - Aspera Hiems Symfonia
    Ulver - Bergatt
    Ulver - Kveldssanger (happy bitches?)
    Ulver - Nattens Madrigal (now you have the more metal related ones out of your system, get onto the real meat)
    Arcturus - La Masquerade Infernale
    Ulver - Themes from William Blake's Marriage of Heaven and Hell
    Ulver - Metamorphasis
    Ulver - Perdition City
    Arcturus and the Deception Circus - Disguised Masters
    Ulver - the rest of their post PC discography

    If you want, throw in the first couple Borknagar albums into the metal section, as they are some of Garm's best metal work.

    I must agree with LuminousAether here. But "Sham mirrors" = easy-listening?

    You´re probably right. Though I think "Nattens Madrigal" isn´t as advanced musically, it´s advanced sound-wise. ;)

    Well I am a fan of garm and this is the order I got the albums.
    Arcturus - The Sham Mirrors
    Ulver - Themes and Perdition City, and Arcturus - Aspera Heims Simfonia all at the same time
    Ulver - Silencing the Singing and Metamorphosis at the same time
    Borknagar self titled.
    Ulver - Kveldssanger
    Ulver - Bergtatt and Lyckantropen at the same time
    Arcturus - La Masquerade Infernale (just because it was unavailable for so long)
    Ulver - Nattens Madrigal
    I still don't have Silence Teaches you How to Sing or any other Borknagar albums.
    I definately should have got Bergtatt way earlier but that's it.

    Disguised Masters is a couple of remixes on tracks from La Masquerade Infernale, all done by Arcturus. Not sure about what "the deception circus" means though.
    It's even more exprimential than the original and the quality and influences of the songs varies a lot.

    There are also one new song called "Deception Genesis", which could have fit on "Maquerade", and a re-recorded version av "Du Nordavind" which sounds pretty much like the one on "Aspera..." but with a small touch of electronic metal. Not too much though.

    The remixes are pretty far from the original so don't expect another "Masquerade"

    Ah, thanks. I'll probably download a few songs and then get it.

    Heres the order i got the albums, starting years ago...and it worked fine for me

    Bergtatt
    Kveldsanger
    Nattens Madrigal
    Perdition City
    Metamophosis
    William Blake's
    Silence EPs
    etc. as they came out

    as for Arcturus...id get aspera Heims first. Im really not a big fan of sham mirrors or Masquerade infernal to be honest. a bit too fruity for my taste.

    AND GET THE BORKNAGAR SELF TITLED ALBUM NOW!
