    They played "I trollskog faren vild" at one show in Italy, I think.
    Their next album is going to be covers of old psychedelic rock songs from the '70's if my memory serves me right.

    When I saw Ulver last week a guy shouted "I TROLLSKOG FAEN VILD!!!" when they entered the stage and Garm was like "Oh, is that how this is going to be"

    The same one. The names were totally changed when translating. Hiroshi - the elvis-like rider- was called on spanish Febo...WTF! Kotetsu means (of) steel I think.

    About Ulver, it seems like a bad idea to play that song from Bergtatt. Even if I truly love their first albums, I can help to think that their shows will be filled by black metal fans asking and waiting for those songs, which don't realize that their 'black trilogy' is just a small part of the band' discography and they don't make metal anymore since ages.

    Im sure the black metal fans are completely aware of Ulver not being black metal anymore. Black metal fans may not be as ignorant and stupid as you think.

    I disagree. I'm a black metal fan and I'm definitely as stupid or stupider than he thinks.

    Maybe I said it wrong... I was talking about the expectation of playing at least 1 black metal track when it's obvious that the chances of that happening should be minimal, if not, inexistant. I probably exaggerated saying 'filling the venue' or something like that, but the amount of people that loves their first albums and hate/dislike the rest it's not small, besides I know a good share of people that would atttend an Ulver gig just for listening that one song being performed - which is really stupid.

    Think of how stupid the average black metal fan is. Now realize that half of them are even dumber than that...

    The metal people I've met at festivals have usually been dumb as bricks. Although, some are of course bright people.

    Maybe, but I've always felt that metal has a higher concentration of bone-heads. Might just be because most of the times I am in huge crowds of people, those people are metal heads.

    generally i feel like this in a crowd where i totally don't fit in, like f.ex. a crowd on a Queen's Day here in NL (last week) or in the middle of the biggest shopping street on saturday. Makes me sick :puke:and reminds me every time exactly why i'm a misanthrope. A metal crowd is actually one of the very few crowds i usually feel right at home in. Have yet to meet a dumb metalhead too, but then again i don't meet that many people at all.

    ... through the door, you mean. Crowd capacity at those functions is reduced by 30% because of the obesity of ICP fans.

    Ahaha I think one of my favorite videos of all time is Andrew WK playing at Gathering of the Juggalos 08. That's real life trolling at its finest.

    Metal fans I've come into contact IRL have always been interesting to me and they're certainly not all the same.
