Bergtatt - Et eeventyr i 5 capitler

Bergtatt - Et eeventyr i 5 capitler ("Taken into the Mountain - A Fairy Tale in 5 Chapters") is the debut album by the Norwegian band Ulver.

Contrary to the more straightforward black metal of their contemporaries, Ulver began their career by incorporating elements of Norwegian folk music, sometimes using acoustic guitars, melody-focused songwriting, and clean vocals. The lyrics are in archaic Danish, as opposed to English or the band's native Norwegian. The acoustic aspects of the album would later be isolated in their second release Kveldssanger, while the third album, Nattens madrigal, consists entirely of a "raw" black metal production and sound.
