* FadingIntoTheNextSong: The compositions on ''ATGCLVLSSCAP'' do this a lot. Generally the only gaps in the first half of the album are for LP side breaks. There are more gaps in the second half of the album. Their film soundtracks also mostly use either this or SiameseTwinSongs for transitions between songs.

* LiveAlbum: ''The Norwegian National Opera'' (recorded at... well... guess) and ''Live at Roadburn'' provide two different takes on the trope, with the former presenting mostly reinterpretations of the band's old material, while the latter provides live renditions of ''Childhood's End'' material and one closing improvisation.

* CoverVersion: The band covered Music/BlackSabbath's "Solitude" on ''Shadows of the Sun'' and {{Prince}}'s "Thieves" for a tribute album. Furthermore, ''[[CoverAlbum Childhood's End]]'' consists entirely of covers of material from the late sixties, mostly quite obscure (JeffersonAirplane's "Today" is by far the best known song covered).

* {{Improv}}: The compositions on ''ATGCLVLSSCAP'' were constructed over live recordings of improvisations the band did from twelve shows. They're far from typical improv fare, though, as the band has composed tightly structured pieces over them. Naturally, some of the band's live performances have played this trope straighter. Despite some of the material having been recorded live, ''ATGCLVLSSCAP'' is considered a studio album due to the large amounts of studio overdubbing.

* LimitedSpecialCollectorsUltimateEdition: There have been two versions of this for the band's "black metal Trilogie". One, released in 1997, was called ''The Trilogie: Three Journeyes Through the Norwegian Netherworlde'', which was a box set with three picture [=LPs=] and a bunch of {{Feelies}}. The second, released in 2014, was called ''Trolsk sortmetall 1993-1997'' and included either five [=CDs=] or four [=LPs=] and a cassette along with the requisite {{Feelies}}, which were different this time around (also, unlike ''The Trilogie'', this included the band's demo ''Vargnatt'' and a rehearsal of four ''Nattens madrigal'' tracks). The material was also remastered for ''Trolsk sortmetall''.

* TheStinger: After the final track of ''Bergtatt'' has finished fading out, there is a lengthy silence and then a hidden track consisting of uplifting, instrumental neofolk.

* LastNoteNightmare: The last few tracks on ''1st Decade in the Machines'' are heavier and more terrifying than anything else the band released.
* LighterAndSofter: ''Kveldssanger'' and nearly anything they released after ''Nattens madrigal''. ''1st Decade in the Machines'' subverts it by initially being this trope, but eventually becoming heavier than anything the band did during their metal phase. (Hiring Music/{{Merzbow}} to remix your material will usually have that effect).

* EpicRocking: Quite a few songs. Perhaps the best examples are "Silence Teaches You How to Sing" from the EP of the same name (the band's longest composition at just over twenty-four minutes in length), every song on its companion EP ''Silencing the Singing'', "Ulvsblakk" from ''Kveldssanger'', "Proverbs of Hell, Plates 7-10" and "A Memorable Fancy, Plates 17-20" from the Blake album, "Providence" and "Stone Angels" from ''Wars of the Roses'', most of ''Bergtatt'', and about half of ''Perdition City'', ''Messe I.X-VI.X'', and ''ATGCLVLSSCAP''. ''Terrestrials'' consists of this too, although not so much the rocking part.
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: ''Nattens madrigal'''s full title translates to "The Madrigal of the Night - Eight Hymns to the Wolf in Man", and its eight songs, numbered "Hymn I" through "Hymn VIII", in a ConceptAlbum about... well...

* BilingualBonus: The first three albums are sung almost entirely in an archaic form of Danish (note that modern Norwegian evolved from Danish), with occasional digressions on one of the albums into modern Norwegian. A track on their remix album, ''1st Decade in the Machines'', contains a conversation entirely in German. Not to mention their very name is Norwegian for "wolves".
