Úlfur was lauded for his post classical / drone metal masterpiece 'Arborescence', with a nomination for a Kraumur award for best Icelandic Album of 2017, selected as one of 25 albums from 347 nominations.
Úlfur updated his multiple ideas and broad strokes through his 2017 release on figureight records. The album moved steadily from beautiful expansive strings through ambient composition and power power-grind complimentary of Greg Fox though. Strings care of of Gyda Valtysdottir, and the legendary production prowess of Randall Dunn (Earth / Sunn O))) glued it all together beautifully.
This year, Úlfur is taking to the road, with his supergroup line up, featuring Greg Fox and Gyda in tow, as well as a full string section.
