* MinisculeRocking: "Ord" from ''Kveldssanger'' is a mere 18 seconds long, while "Fuck Fast", "Sick Soliloquy", and "Poltermagda" from the ''Svidd neger'' soundtrack are 20, 21, and 28, respectively. Some of the other songs are pretty short as well.

(Note that the ''Svidd neger'' soundtrack is mostly connected through SiameseTwinSongs and FadingIntoTheNextSong, so these could be considered very short movements of a longer piece rather than very short songs).

* SiameseTwinSongs: The songs on ''Nattens madrigal'' are connected seamlessly by a series of ambient interludes.

* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: ''Anywhere'' from a 1 to an 11.

* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: ''Anywhere'' from a 1 to an 11.11 or even beyond. Strangely, most of their 11 moments are from their remix album released after they abandoned metal; their heaviest metal album, ''Nattens madrigal'', is too melodic to qualify for an 11, despite the thoroughly abrasive production (it's a solid 10 all the way through, though). The remix album verges into HarshNoise territory at its heaviest (which should be no surprise since Music/{{Merzbow}} was one of the remixers).

* DarkerAndEdgier: ''Nattens madrigal'' is this to both Ulver's previous work and to much of the BlackMetal at the time. It [[PlayingWithATrope plays with the trope]], however, in that it's still a tremendously melodic album; it's mainly the thoroughly abrasive production and liberal use of CarefulWithThatAxe that make it a difficult listen for newcomers.

** As for their other releases, many of the tracks on ''1st Decade in the Machines'' are badly affected, but since all but one of them were remixes by other groups, this probably isn't Ulver's fault. Their other badly affected full-length releases are ''Blood Inside'', which actually does clip in some parts, and ''The Marriage of Heaven and Hell'', which tends to be quite loud. The EPs ''Metamorphosis'' and ''A Quick Fix of Melancholy'' are also affected throughout (except on the last track of the former), though not particularly badly by modern standards. Most other releases are only badly affected on one or two tracks, and ''Shadows of the Sun'' and ''Terrestrials'' aren't affected at all. The other releases do sometimes clip, but still have good dynamic range overall (''ATGCLVLSSCAP'', for example, comes out to an average range of [=DR8=], with only one of its twelve tracks, "Glammer Hammer", being under [=DR7=]).

* {{Bookends}}: "What Happened?", the last song on ''Shadows of the Sun'', has an instrumental outro that is very similar to the ending of "Eos", the first song on the album.
