Entombed - Wolverine Blues

1994 Earache Records :: Reviewed by rofreason on 2005-07-06

Wow, big changes here. Lars-Goran Petrov is back on vocals, and the band, although sporting a meatier guitar sound (if that's possible) has slowed down considerably. Most people either love or hate this album. Many fans disowned the band upon this release, and I have to agree, it is major step away from Clandestine. The question is, of course, is it a step backwards? I don't think so. I think that the band realized that there would never be another Clandestine, and moved on. Sure, the songs are more accessible, but upon closer listen, there is some good stuff here. Rotten Soil just rocks, and Heavens Die has some awesome riffs in it. One has to wonder also how much of the problem was the band's signing to Sony Records, and what effect they had on the final sound of the album. Probably a good one to pick up used if you can find it.
