Early black metal greats turned avant-garde experimentalists Ulver have had to drop off the Maryland Death Fest bill due to unspecified health concerns. Ulver was scheduled to play the Edison Lot stage on Friday, May 23, along with heavy hitters like At the Gates (who are recording an album) and Taake. No word on who will fill their rather big shoes, but stay tuned for an announcement.
In a statement on their website, Ulver wrote that doctors advised the band to take a break after a short tour in Europe. Uncertainty as to a recovery time led to Ulver canceling the performance at Maryland Death Fest, as well as a show in Moscow that the band was scheduled to play with an orchestra.
Ulver just released a collaborative album, Terrestrials, with Sunn O))). Stream it in full, with the updated MDF lineup, below...
