It’s Wolverine Week on the Metal Hammer of Doom with our review of Entombed: Wolverine Blues. Wolverine Blues is the third studio album by Swedish heavy metal band Entombed, which released on October 4, 1993 by Earache Records. The album displays a completely different sound from previous releases. Combining elements of hard rock, heavy metal, and hardcore. While still retaining much of their traditional death metal roots too. All done in a death ‘n’ roll style.
One version of Wolverine Blues released with Marvel Comics’ character Wolverine on the cover. Despite Entombed never wanting their album associated with the superhero. Earache Records, without the band’s permission, made a deal with Marvel. In order, to promote the album to a more mainstream audience. This edition also includes a Wolverine mini-comic inside the CD booklet.
The Marvel edition is also heavily edited, with the track “Out of Hand” being removed entirely. A limited number of early pressings even contained audio samples taken from films (most notably Flatliners and Hellraiser III), which were subsequently removed from later pressings due to record label fears of potential legal action over unlicensed use.

About Radulich in Broadcasting
Mark Radulich has been an internet personality since 2004 with his Progressive Conservatism blog. He then took that blog to the airwaves and created a podcast for it. It then changed to PC Live. After that, he brought out the 411mania Ground and Pound Radio as well.
Also, Mark would partner up with another 411mania alum, Sean Comer, to create the movie franchise review podcast Long Road to Ruin and then Robert Cooper to create the metal album review podcast, The Metal Hammer of Doom. Robert Winfree took over the MMA show and then added his own podcast, Everybody Loves a Bad Guy. That’s when the Radulich in Broadcasting Network was born. Joining Winfree in having their own podcasts were super fan’s Jesse Starcher (Source Material). Finally Winfree and Radulich added a weekly movie review show to the ever growing lists of podcasts on the Network.

About Metal Hammer of Doom
Mark Radulich, Robert Cooper and former superfan turned host Jesse Starcher review the latest metal, industrial and southern rock albums. Each show focuses on one new release each week. We listen to a portion of every track on the album and then give our ratings. Hilarity normally ensues.
Podcasts are one of the greatest mediums ever. 10 years ago Jesse found himself driving back and forth to work with over an hour of travel time. Talk radio became something that he enjoyed and helped kill time during the commute. The problem was NPR never stayed completely interesting and his only other options were the ESPN network and the local channel that hosted religious programming. Always the same show… at the same time. It was pretty limited. About three years ago he discovered Podcasts and it changed how he spent much of his time. It opened up options to great niche content that he never even knew was available. After that, he got his first podcast gig on the From the Cheap Seats sports podcast with Jayson Teasley and became a co-host shortly after that.
His real passion however was comics. He managed to talk Mark Radulich into letting him do the network’s premier comic book podcast Source Material. This would give him a platform to chat with friends about one of his favorite hobbies. A tremendous opportunity. Also, recently Jesse has worked his way into becoming the third co-host, alongside Mark Radulich and Robert Cooper, of the metal Hammer of Doom podcast. He loves music and a podcast about heavy-metal right up his alley.
