Death 'n' roll classic gets hardcore spin

Converge have a long history with the song "Wolverine Blues" by Swedish death-metal titans Entombed. The Boston hardcore crew released a whole EP of "Wolverine Blues" covers in 2013, titled Pound for Pound, featuring five takes on the cut, each with a different vocalist, including At the Gates' Tomas Lindberg and All Pigs Must Die's Kevin Baker. Jacob Bannon and Co. have also performed the song numerous times onstage, including at 2018's Roadburn Festival joined by Lindberg and Baker. But Converge's most notable rendition of "Wolverine Blues" has to have been their 2012 rendition of the song with none other than Entombed's own LG Petrov. Watch the epic performance above. The fan-shot footage takes on a newly bittersweet tone viewed in the wake of Petrov's death. Last summer, when news broke of his cancer diagnosis, Converge donated all proceeds from their Entombed cover EP to his GoFundMe.
