1. Means wolf in Norweigan
2. The name of a Norweigan band, fronted by Krystoffer Rygg. Although they began with black metal roots, they have since progressed in to folk, jazz and electronica. They are currently focused on electronica, to major underground success. Incredibly brilliant. Official site: http://www.jester-records.com/ulver/
I first heard Ulver with they're debut Bergtatt and have followed them since. Even though it's not black metal, I love it anyway.
