    Here's some of the bands and artists I'm into:

    Kiss
    Whitesnake
    The Gathering
    Bee Gees
    Richard Marx
    A-ha
    Alphaville
    Saviour Machine
    Fates Warning
    Judas Priest
    Labÿrinth (mostly the album "Return to heaven denied")
    Londonbeat (believe it or not but I love the "Harmony" album)
    Marc Anthony
    Helloween
    Metallica
    Carly Simon
    Bruce Sprigsteen
    Elvis Presley
    Journey
    Veni Domine

    I guess I could go on for a while more but these are the ones that come to mind for the moment. As you can see it's a lot of pop and melodic stuff so it's definitely safe to say that I put the pop in Wolverine. :)

    Im pretty suprised. I would have expected a more "progressive" musictaste, regarding your records (TWP mainly) which are very progressive. Wolverine is also seen as a progmetal band.
    YOur music doesn't show your music taste :)

    The progressive side of our music comes from the fact that both Marcus and me were huge Fates Warning-fans during the 90's and Mikael (as well as me) was heavily into Dream Theater. Those influences kind of stuck with us and show in the music we write even today. The fact that our music is some sort of progressive metal is for me also the main reason why I don't listen that kind of music these days. It's kind of nice to get away from that whole thing so that when we get into writing mode we're not fed up with it. Then again, right now I'm having one of my Queensrÿche trips and just can't get enough of Mindcrime. :headbang:

    Interesting view. Whats with your Death Metal influences? Does anyone of you still listen to death metal oand can we expect any death parts in wolverine in the future? What do you think of Death Bands like Opeth for example?

    My tastes are varied, though I listen to metal mainly. Some of my favourite bands (other than Wolverine of course) include: The Gathering, Opeth, After Forever, Orphaned Land, Ram-Zet, Draconian, Nevermore, Rammstein, Elfonia, Shape of Despair, Season's End, Madder Mortem, Bloodbath, Strapping Young Lad..I could go on for a while! I'm really enjoying exploring doom metal at the moment, funeral doom in particular.

    I don't listen exclusively to metal though, as I don't like to get stuck in a rut musically - I also love some singer/songwriters like Sarah McLachlan, Tori Amos, Fiona Apple etc. I also have a much mocked fondness for Dolly Parton. My pop music desires are satisfied by Tatu & ABBA :D

    My Last.FM profile shows my tastes fairly well - Prawn @ Last.FM

    I really like the "Damnation" album by Opeth, and as I said before, I really like Amorphis. The new album is very good and the "Tales from the thousand lakes" album is one of the reasons Wolverine were formed in the first place. I still listen to that album from time to time and sometimes I can put on a Morbid Angel album as well. When it comes to death-parts in Wolverine songs I really don't know, it might happen, it might not happen. It's really about our state of mind :). At this moment I'm really not inspired to include any death metal parts in Wolverine since I'm not into it, and I'm really not keen on forcing something into somehing just because the sake of it. It really has to feel like it belongs if we would do such a thing. We evolve as a band all the time and I can't say we're the same band as we were when we recorded TWP, we're an update of that band with new ways of looking at things. I guess it's the same thing for every band that wants to evolve.

    Then I think you should check out Veni Domine (www.venidomine.com). They're a progressive doomband, especially their first two albums are nothing but masterpieces. I'm good friend with Torbjörn Weinesjö who plays guitar and he has actually helped Wolverine out a few times with arrangements and stuff.

    All their albums are great but as I said, especially check out Fall Babylon Fall and Material Sanctuary.

    I'd love to incorporate some more growls in the future but, just as Marcus says, it has to feel motivated. They should be there for a reason and that reason must be a musical reason. We'll see what future compositions may hold.

    I like Opeth altough I don't actively listen to them but I do have great respect for them as musicians. I actually, up until very recently, worked with Johan DeFarfalla who played bass on their first two albums. He shared a lot of great road stories with me. :)

    It would be silly to force it, especially if it doesn't fit at all with where you are heading with the music. I love a band to evolve, there's nothing more boring than someone churning the same album out again and again. That's one of the things I like so much about Wolverine, every album has the Wolverine feel to it, but each one is different.

    Of course some bands 'evolve' in a direction I find absolutely unlistenable *cough*Lacuna Coil*cough*.


    Thanks for the recommendation, I'll check them out :D

    I just saw that Earache has inked a distribution deal with Warner in the UK. Hopefully that will help TWP and CLoM to get better exposure. We shall see...

    Johan works as a project leader at a school somewhere outside Gävle. I haven't been in touch with him for many months now but as far as I know he lives a happy life together with his wife and two (or three??) kids. He doesn't do much playing at all actually.

    As for the other member I don't have a clue.
