Wolverine are musicians and artists that grow each and every time they make a new album.

'Machina Viva', the brand new album from Sweden's Wolverine, contains a set of songs woven upon webs of intricate musicality, supported by rich beautiful synth rhythms, strong vocals and thought provoking lyrics that talk of life and its many ups and downs. When all of these elements are combined, they aid the musicians of Wolverine to build their delicate and intoxicating Progressive melodies to sumptuous and interesting crescendos.

Take opening track, the fourteen minute plus epic 'The Bedlam Overture', as a perfect example of what Wolverine's music is all about. On it we find the band filling the room with glorious, mysterious and sweeping keyboard refrains that set the tone for a song wrapped in deep musical layers. Layers so musically pleasing that you'll want to try to peel them all away and this will keep you coming back to this song many times to get the most pleasure you can from it. As a lead off track, it is an enigmatic and arresting way to start proceedings.



Beginning with such a song, though, could be a problem for many other acts when it comes to the other songs found on their albums. Wolverine, however, have the talent and skill to keep on coming up with compositions that are so good that they leave you breathless, totally engaged as a listener and wanting discover what's to come next. So giving 'Pile Of Ash', a solemn ballad about lost love and obsession which sees singer Stefan Zell putting in a truly mesmerizing performance, 'Our Last Goodbye', 'Pledge', the stunningly good 'When The Night Comes' and the beautifully arranged 'Nemesis' the patience and time they need to work their charms on your senses will only help to bring this superb release to life for you.

After weeks of getting to know this album. I can say that 'Machina Viva' is the kind of recording that no matter how long you give to it, you will still find new and exciting things to experience.when you come back to it and play it again. Wolverine are musicians and artists that grow each and every time they make a new album and long may it be so.
