First up, I've got to raise my pint mug to Deadtide's own Bob D. for getting a nice quote at the very top of the promo sheet for Wolverine's latest effort, in which he aptly describes Wolverine as "A melancholy mixture of mainstream prog rock and progressive metal," which makes a lot more sense than "...emotionally bruised songs that slither...

Sweden's Wolverine should definitely be on the radar of prog metal fans. While their latest album of new material, 2003's 'Cold Light of Monday' is supposedly laid-back prog rock, 'The Window Purpose' is Wolverine's first full length progressive metal record, and is getting the re-release treatment from Earache / Elitist Records throughout Europe and the States. Take note fans of Dream...

Wolverine follows up "The Window Purpose" with their Elitist debut "Cold Light of Monday", and it seems sort of like a change in the group's direction. Whereas the prior release was pretty easily categorized as typical progressive metal, this disc is more reminiscent of Opeth's "Damnation" but far quirkier and a bit detrimentally experimental. The whole CD is...

Wolverine is an awfully ferocious name for a metal band to have, seeing as how it is one of the most savage mammals known to man. For any progressive band to use this beast as a symbolic representation of their music is brave albeit foolish. The reason why I am stressing this issue so much is that though the band...
