Kveldssanger (Twilight Songs) is the second album by Norwegian band Ulver.

The album is quite different from the band's previous offering Bergtatt in that the band's vocalist, Garm, only uses choir-like chanting instead of the usual harsh black metal vocals. Kveldssanger abandons the black metal genre for a totally acoustic folk approach, though various reviews claim the album has a "black metal atmosphere". This album makes heavy use of strings. Although this album is often held in high regard, it has been described by the band as a failed attempt at creating a classical folk album. However, the mainman Garm said in Metalkult's interview that his dissatisfaction towards the album was pointed to the performance, rather than the content of the album.
