Track Of The Day: The Poodles
The Poodles are about to release both a live CD and DVD, showcasing their real strengths as a touring band. And they’ve given us a suitably explosive Guy Fawkes Night Track Of The Day. Check out all Tracks Of The Day.
The Swedish band started out in 2006, with the album Metal Will Stand Tall, which came shortly after they appeared at the Medolifestivalen, an annual contest to find the Swedish entry for the Eurovision Song Contest. They finished fourth (and actually entered again two years later, this time combining with big selling artist E-Type on Line Of Fire), but it did bring together vocalist Jakob Samuel (one-time Talisman drummer) , guitarist Pontus Norgren (ex-Lions Share), bassist Pontus Egberg (Talisman) and drummer Christian Lundqvist.
A year later came second album Sweet Trade, with the single Seven Seas proving a big hit; this was co-written by Swedish actor Peter Stormare (Prison Break, Fargo, Jurassic Park). Replacing Norgren with Henrink Bergqvist in 2008, The Poodles released third album Clash Of The Elements last year. Now, to celebrate a new deal with Frontiers, the band are to release the live CD No Quarter and the live DVD In The Flesh on November 8, both separately and together.
