With Wolverine Blues, Entombed made their most solid, unconditionally riff-loaded and groove-based release to date, but at the same time, they were subject to accusations of selling out from the death metal masses that had previously hailed them.
Why? It was mainly because the gothic and melodic sounds the band had previously performed are largely gone. Instead, Entombed embraced a new, odd and unfamiliar 'Death 'n' roll' style, yet tracks like "Eyemaster" and "Contempt" are still able to shred you awake right away with its furious slabs of riffing, while "Demon" starts off slow and builds into a wall of riffage with such frenzied soloing at the end, but "Full of Hell" settles into more of a slow grungy groove thing, and showcases the band's new direction. The truth of Wolverine Blues is that Entombed realized that their set path was leading them towards a stylistic dead end, and as a result, they changed their style accordingly.
While many death metal bands at the time went artistically bankrupt, Entombed somehow had enough vision to inject some new genetic materials to broaden their horizons.
