Hot on the heels of the celebrated The Assassination of Julius Caesar, Norwegian experimentalists Ulver surprised the Internet this morning with the sudden announcement of a new EP. Though Sic Transit Gloria Mundi's release date has yet to be unveiled, debut single "Echo Chamber (Room of Tears)" shows these wolves have, much to the delight of many, found a new center with their recently embraced synthpop/electronic rock style. Ulver's "catchy kosmiche," a new development in a career which covers the vast ground between trip-hop, first-wave dubstep, jazz, post-punk, and (though it's been twenty years) black metal, is yet another tour de force of metamorphic mastery.

The Sic Transit Gloria Mundi EP will be released on House of Mythology at a yet-to-be-disclosed date. Watch the "Echo Chamber (Room of Tears)" music video below.
