Swedish dark progressive act, Wolverine, proudly unveils their new video for “Our Last Goodbye,” the single hailing from their upcoming Machina Viva album, nearing release in July through Sensory Records. Directed by the band’s drummer Marcus Losbjer and bassist Thomas Jansson, with photography by Mattias Wigforss, the video has been unveiled through Revolver Magazine’s newly revamped web portal for public intake. Alongside the video, the mag has posted exclusive quotes from several members of WOLVERINE on the inspiration and creation of the song.
Wolverine’s first title for the Laser’s Edge metal division, Sensory Records, Machina Viva will see worldwide release on July 8th.
Recorded and produced by the band in various locations throughout Sweden during late 2015 and early 2016, Wolverine’s fifth album 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.”
