WOLVERINE Resumes Work On New Material

Drummer Marcus Losbjer of the Swedish progressive metal band WOLVERINE has issued the following update:

"I'm looking forward to FINALLY record the new album, after more than three (!) years of writing in a limbo! The absence of inspiration have been really severe this time. This album have been a struggle to write, by far the most difficult album to puzzle together out of all the WOLVERINE albums. It's the complete opposite to the last album ('Still') that was a dream to write. It was fast and actually quite easy!

"As you may have read on forums, MySpace and so on, we've had more difficulties to deal with this year than just the minor problems concerning the band. The heart problems with Stefan's [Zell, vocals] daughter has maybe been the toughest. A reminder of how fragile we are! Everything has been mixed into a big melting pot, just ready to explode! Thankfully, it didn't.

"After the ProgPower Europe gigs in October, we found a little spark to lighten the inspiration again. This time I hope it will never go as ice cold as it has been!"

WOLVERINE's latest album, "Still", was released in the U.S. in July 2006 via Candlelight Records. The CD was recorded in part at Spacelab studio in Tönisvorst, Germany. The follow-up to 2003's "Cold Light of Monday" was produced by Oliver Philipps, Christian "Moschus" Moos and WOLVERINE and was mixed at the end of August 2005.
