5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 30 May 2004
By N
Format:Audio CD
Any sort of extreme metal fan owes it to themselves to get hold of this album (especially at this price). With wolverine blues entombed moved away from the straight forward death metal towards what they called "death and roll". This is without doubt their best album. From the feedback drenched started to eyemaster to the final track out of hand it never stops. The best way to describe entombed's sound is death metal meets punk via moterhead. The best tracks on this album, for example, rotten blues, contempt, the title track and the simply magnificent out of hand are up there with anything that the Scandinavian extreme metal scene has thrown since.
Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greats... 27 Mar 2006
By Labal
Format:Audio CD
At a time when metal was at a strong point, especially in terms of a push from the US led music industry and undeniably great albums such as Burn My Eyes, Chaos AD, Vulgar Display of Power etc it's not hard to see how a Swedish metal band on a British label fall through the cracks.
Undeservedly so! From the opening bars of Eyemaster to the final expletive of Out of Hand this is a fantastic slab of thrash mayhem, and while it might not be the most original piece of work ever, it deserves more recognition. Personal favourites are Rotten Soil and the title track but really it's all great and is a must buy if you're into the whole Sepultura, Pantera, Machine Head sort of sound - one of the ten best metal albums ever...

3.0 out of 5 stars Something very important is missing! 10 Feb 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Let's get one thing straight from the start - "Wolverine Blues" is actually a very, *very* good album. However, I should give this advice:
DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, BUY THIS "CLEAN" VERSION OF THE ALBUM.
You will be doing yourself a severe disservice, because the best track on the album, and one of Entombed's best-known classics, "Out Of Hand", is missing, and all because it mentions a certain word a couple of times.
This three-star review reflects the damage caused to the album by leaving off "Out Of Hand". The overall effect is similar to fitting a Ferrari with a 1.0-litre Fiat Uno engine - looks good, but drive it and you'll find there's something seriously wrong.
Do yourself a huge favour and pick up the proper ten-track version with "Out Of Hand" on it. That album rates five stars, and then some.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome 4 May 2005
Format:Audio CD
the problem this album poses is: how do you review the best metal album you have heard?
it has all the energy of punk, and all the sheer anger and aggression of metal. The best way to describe them would be a more metal than punk version of motorhead. The album sleeve describes it as "death'n'roll" you'll see what it means when you hear it.
the music just never lets up, straight from the first track its an assault on the ear-drums (and i mean that in a good way) and the lyrics are angry and in some parts rather clever ("no matter how low you are theres always someone to look down upon")

4.0 out of 5 stars cracking groovy death n roll 21 April 2006
By sean paul mccann VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
for a band thats origins lie in death metal entombed have changed their sound alot over the years and this was the beginning of entombed soing death n roll,which is a genre they created and named themselves,its still heavy,it just has a more groovy undertone to it,the vocals are more rock n roll,kinda like lemmys in motorhead but better,the band just let go and really let rip on the rock n roll scene giving it a heavier and more focused edge,songs like hollowman show a band that are comfortable with change,clearly the band knew they could alienate some of their older fans by recording this album but it was the album that they had to make,the title track is full of vitirol and swagger and loads of confidence and rightly so this is regarded as a landmark album,it isnt a blues album as the album title may hint at,it still has drilling riffs and killer drum beats,its as enjoyable an album as you could hope to hear and thats fine praise indeed

5.0 out of 5 stars Seminal Album from Swedish Metallers 10 Oct 2014
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
This album was my introduction to Swedish Death Metal and over twenty years on it still stands the test of time. The song writing and execution are excellent with a level of brutality and viciousness, and after listening to this album you will be in shock and awe but with a big grin on your face. There is nothing on here not to like, opening with Eye Master this sets the tone and pace, and there is no let up right up until the closing Out Of Hand (were there any justice in the world every rock club DJ would close their set with this song). If you're new to death metal, this is a perfect place to start and should be an essential part of any extreme metal fans album collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece 17 Sep 2003
Format:Audio CD
The higlight of Entombed's illustrious career, this is a wonderful album chcok full of killer tunes. Entombed have never been 'just another' death metal band, and this album sees them moving even further away from the all-out savagery of their debut 'Left hand Path' than previous effort 'Clandestine' attempted.
It appears that Entombed were utterly unconcerned at whispers of them 'selling out' but releaseing an album that was about as death metal as Sum 41, because this album is 100 %, balls out rock n' roll (albeit with an extremely heavy guitar sound and much, much faster). The immense groove of these tracks means that the album just races past, yet manages to stick in your memory like some obscene advertising jingle.
The chunky riffs on 'Rotten Soil', 'Eyemaster' and the magnificent 'Hollowman' are reminiscent of The Hellacopters (who were formed by ex-member Nicke Andersson upon leaving Entombed), with a dirty, greasy sound that you just have to tap your foot to. There are still moments where their death metal heritage is exposed: 'Heavens Die' and 'Contempt' are nods to the past, and the aren't afraid to experiment a little either, as the impressive 'Blood Song' offers more than a nod to Corrosion Of Conformity's 'Blind' album.
In short, this just kicks Nu-Metal into a cocked hat. So if you think metal began when Jonathan Davis first whined to the world about his daddy beating on him, do yourself a favour. Get educated. Get this album.
