Wolverine has issued the following announcement about their bass player making a guest appearance on the upcoming Griftegård album:
"Our bassplayer, Thomas Jansson, recently recorded the bass tracks on Griftegård's upcoming album which is to be released in September this year. Griftegård, a doom metal band from Norrköping, Sweden, invited Thomas to participate in the process of making this album after a rather quick and unforseen situation which led to the original bassplayer parting ways with the band. When former Wolverine guitarist Per Broddesson, now member of Griftegård, asked whether Thomas could come to Norrköping and help out, there was no way he was going to miss the opportunity to work with a band that he highly appreciates. Thomas will join Griftegård on the Hamburg gig due 18 July, where they will play together with The Devil's Blood."
