Nope... What album do you suggest?
Hahaha... well that's a difficult one... first you maybe should read this to give you some 'impression'https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ulver
once.... they started off as a blackmetal band... but infact all their albums after that period are quite interesting... problem is that almost
none of their albums sounds like the previous one.... maybe it's just safe to start with their releases on the K-Scope label even than you already
get a spectrum of " symphopop/electrosoundscapes/classical stringensemblemusic/progmetal " to digest... in a way they are *the* progressive
ensemble pur sang... recently they have been involved in some filmscores as well.... if you are interested you can find some of their work even
on YouTube just make your pick... and be surprised
You can try all of the albums mentioned in the discography section om the wikipage (it doesn't
include the blackmetal stuff) The Julias Ceasar album is only coming out next month.... I own/know their records as from 'The Blood Inside' album...
and i am pretty impressed since then
