THE POODLES Announce 'Prisma' Covers Album

Friday, January 26, 2018
The Poodles "PRISMANew album out January 2018!
The Poodles are back with "PRISMA" the follow-up to the critically acclaimed album “Devil in the Details”!
The Poodles have released seven full-length studio albums and one live album over the past ten years and had discussed the possibility of doing an album featuring songs from other artists for several years. They finally decided that it was time!
The title, “PRISMA” is meant to reflect the difference in perspective that the band brings to the songs on the album. The decision was made early to stay away from genres close to the band’s own, but other than that, any song could come into question for making the cut.
In collaboration with up-and-coming producer, Dino Medanhodzic at Radionica Studios, the band came up with a slate of songs that span some 40 years of music, from the 1970s up to the 2010s! The deciding factor was the quality of the song where a strong hook and a driving riff were key ingredients.
Fans of Elton John, Fleetwood Mac, Depeche Mode, Blondie, and The Swedish House Mafia are in for a treat, as The Poodles put their unique stamp on classic tracks by these and other artists!
PRISMA is out in virtual and physical stores on January 26.

THE POODLES Release New Single 'It's No Good'

The Poodles 
New single out today! 
The Poodles are back with "It’s no good", the second single from the coming album "PRISMA", in virtual and physical stores early 2018!
"We took on the challenge to do our version of an iconic song from a different genre", says lead singer Jakob Samuel. “Depeche Mode is such an influential band and their darker 90s stuff is really cool!” he continues.
The choice to do a heavy rock version of "It’s no good" stems from the simple fact that everyone liked the song”, guitarist Henrik adds. "It is a dark, epic song about broken relationships, which is always and interesting theme to explore".
"We wanted to add an explosive element that would catch the listener’s ear and develop the hypnotic groove of the song into something more modern sounding, says Kicken, drummer of the band. “People are going to be surprised when they hear it!” he adds.

THE POODLES - Devil In The Details (Review)

information persons: 
section name: 
Before I Die
House of Cards
The Greatest
Crack in the Wall
Produced By: 
Mats Valentin
Release Date: 
Musical Style: 
Melodic Hard Rock
Release Year: 
I love these guys. More Swedish melodic greatness, fronted by one of the best voices in the land – Jakob Samuel. His raspy mix of melody and power and presence give him an edge over many others.
This is the band’s 6th studio album already – where does the time go? I like them all, but this and the last album have been particularly satisfying.
Devil In The Details is easily the band’s most diverse release yet and also their most modern as far as production and production effects.
Diverse and modern are two words that scare (with good reason!) many fans of this genre and you can add ‘not very commercial’ to the list, but I’m pleased to say that everything used on this album is only to serve the songs.
Track by track this is a very consistent and very catchy set of songs.
Production is awesome – it’s this kind of modernization that the genre needs to appeal to new fans, yet everything about this release screams classic hard rock.
The rousing Before I Die with a flurry of heavy riffs and powerful beats is a killer opener.
House Of Cards is an intense, sonically powerful track that leads into the perfect commercial melodic rock ballad The Greatest.
Crack In The Wall is a “wall” of sound – a high energy rocker that leads into the quirky heavy programmed pop feel of (What The Hell) Baby. Suddenly I’m thinking Baby One More Time though. First H.E.A.T, now The Poodles?
Other highlights include Everything - a fantastic uptempo anthem; the cool modern rocker Alive and another effects filled modern rocker Borderline to close.

A different sound from the guys, while retaining their original sound. No one sounds like The Poodles, but they still manage to mix things up and this album is no different.
Another strong and consistent release.

'Devil In The Details' For Sweden's THE POODLES March 24

Tuesday, March 24, 2015
The Poodles are back with "Devil in the Details", their sixth studio album and follow-up to the critically acclaimed "Tour de Force". The evolution of the band's sound is evident as a result of their continued collaboration with produced Mats Valentin. This is rock n' roll straight up, no chaser! In many ways this represents the second coming of The Poodles and you are cordially invited to experience the epic-ness and majesty of "Devil in the Details".
The debut album, “Metal Will Stand Tall”, was released in 2006 and the single “Night of Passion” went platinum. “Streets of Fire” from the album “Sweet Trade”, became the bands biggest selling single to date, achieving double platinum status. They visited twenty-nine European cities during the fall of 2009 and the spring of 2010. The album “Performocracy”(2011) went #1 on the Swedish album chart.
All in all, The Poodles have had over ten “top 10” releases so far which makes them on of Sweden’s most successful rock bands.
Today Jakob Samuel announced the band's new bass player. He stated: "We are very happy to have the opportunity to present our new God Of Thunder, new tribe member and bas-player, the great talent Johan FlodquistWe have been looking for quite some time and it feels really great to have him onboard, give him a warm welcome people!"
In April 2014, the band went on its first European your since 2010 and played for audiences that eagerly had awaited the return of the band. After a summer of playing Swedish and European festivals, The Poodles started working on the follow-up to "Tour de Force". The new album was named "Devil in the Details" to reflect the band's pursuit of perfection and uncompromising attention to details. In the process, bassist Pontus Egberg decided to leave The Poodles to join King Diamond, which left the band searching for a replacement. After a trial period the decision fell on local talent Johan Flodkvist, an accomplished and exciting bass player that is well suited to fill Pontus' shoes.
Now, "Devil in the Details" is due to be released on March 25 marking a new collaboration with the Swedish label Gain Music where bands like Europe, Mustasch, and Hardcore Superstar also reside. The first single off "Devil in the Details" is "The Greatest", an epic and moving number that captures the sentiments found on the rest of the album. “The Greatest” is released on January 19. Long Live Rock N' Roll!
