Sweden’s masters of dark progressive metal, WOLVERINE, have just issued an official lyric video for “Machina,” the second track on the band’s Sensory Records-bound fifth album, Machina Viva. The “Machina” video is exposed to the public through an exclusive premiere via New Noise Magazine, alongside interesting commentary on the track by the band members.
Tune in to New Noise Magazine and see WOLVERINE’s “Machina” video at THIS LOCATION.
WOLVERINE‘s first title for the Laser’s Edge metal division, Sensory Records, Machina Viva will see worldwide release on July 8th. A trailer for the album has also been issued right HERE.
Recorded and produced by WOLVERINE in various locations throughout Sweden during the Autumn and Winter months of late 2015 and early 2016, Machina Viva was mixed at Spacelab Studio in Germany by Christian “Moschus” Moos (Everon, Haken, Delain, Cloverseeds), and mastered by Grammy Award winning audio engineer Bob Katz. A natural progression from the band’s previous album, Communication Lost, released in 2011 via Candlelight Records, Machina Viva invites the listener into the harmonious yet portentous and sullen musical dimensions of WOLVERINE with perhaps their most dynamic album to date. From the fourteen-minute epic and powerful “The Bedlam Overture” and the dark electronic landscapes of “Machina,” to the naked and organic nature of “Pile Of Ash” and “Sheds,” Machina Viva is the next step in Wolverine’s explorations in the progressive field. The layour features microbiological photos by Arturo Agostino and cover art by drummer Marcus Losbjer. Additionally, the CD edition will bear an additional bonus cello version of “Pile Of Ash.”
Additional audio from the album, preorders, tour dates, and more will be issued over the weeks ahead.
