Wolverine - Cold Light Of Monday

Year of Release: 2003
Label: Elitist Records
Catalog Number: Mosh908cd
Format: CD
Total Time: 00:00:00

After their first great release for DVS Records, here is the comeback for these Swedish progsters, this time for Elitist Records.

This time the band shows us a concept work based on the story of a girl named Sarah. The music is very heavy from time to time; sometimes there is a darker approach, with sad melodies, to represent the plot. But the sound and melodies aren't very catchy, and the influences are too evident, to make this album great. Fates Warning, Pain Of Salvation, Pink Floyd and Anathema are deep in Wolverine's music, so it's hard to find some original trademark of the band.

Surely this isn't a masterpiece, but it isn't dull. I think that there is some quality in it, but I wished for an excellent album from Wolverine. Instead it is only fair, but nothing more.
