The Poodles - Metal Will Stand Tall [2006]
Monday, January 1, 2007
The Poodles got a kickstart for their career by taking part in the Eurovision Song Contest 2006 in Sweden. They didn't end up representing Sweden in Athens, but got plenty of publicity for themselves, and have enjoyed success in their home country.
Like last year's Eurovision hard rock success story Wig Wam, the members of The Poodles are seasoned hard rock veterans. Maybe not quite as seasoned as Wig Wam, but still, they've been around for some time.
Vocalist Jacob Samuel is a former Talisman drummer and has been singing in Jekyll & Hyde, Midnight Sun and The Ring, to name a few of his previous groups. Guitarist Pontus Norgren has made a name for himself in bands like Great King Rat, Talisman And Humanimal, while the bass player Pontus Egberg has been in Lion's Share and Zan Clan. Drummer Christian Lundqvist has played in RAW amongst others.
The album “Metal Will Stand Tall” was already released in Sweden & Finland in may 2006 and has topped the swedish sales-charts, until now the record already reached gold status in their home country.
At The End “Metal Will Stand Tall” cd it’s a Melodic Hard Rock straight from the heart of the 80’s with beautiful refrains and catchy melodies.
