With a name like 'The Poodles', these guys had better rock. And they do!!! If your longing for the days when hair metal ruled the airwaves and think that the current trend in American radio sucks then you must check these guys out. From start to finish they transport you back to a time when rock and roll was all about a good time and not hating your life or mother, yet, they are fresh in their approach. American radio needs bands like this to reinvigorate itself, but you'll never hear them because the RIAA would never admit that a band nowadays could and should put out an album that is good from start to finish instead of screwing us over with albums that have 1 or 2 good songs at best. European metal has America by the rock n roll balls right now, with bands such as Masterplan, Starbreaker, Brother Firetribe, and THE POODLES.

Some great pop/glam metal. Ignore the name and enjoy the music which will stick in your head and have you singing along. This is not typically a style I like, but for some reason it still won me over. It's good for when I am in the mood for something "lighter".

"Metal will stand tall" is the debut album of Swedish glam metal stars "The Poodles" originally released in 2006. While the 00s signified the return of many glorified hard rock/glam metal bands and an even larger amount of newcomers of the genre hailing mainly from the Scandinavian countries, the US and Italy, this group managed to stand apart from most other acts for a number of reasons.

Although formed in 2005, "The Poodles" featured seasoned musicians of the Scandinavian rock/metal scene: lead singer Jakob Samuels was the original drummer of Swedish-American hard rock band "Talisman" while guitarist Pontus Norgren played for Jeff Scott Soto and "Zan Clan" amongst others. The line up was completed by Pontus Egberg ("Lion's Share") and drummer Christian "Kicken" Lundqvist.

Originally the band was put together to participate on the annual European song contest "Eurovision" promoting the song "Nights of Passion" which was totally indicative of their enviable songwriting abilities. Their domestic success and booming popularity led to this debut album "Metal will stand tall" bringing to front the classic hair metal sound with increased emphasis on melody and style. On that count not only did they prove themselves capable of outstanding choruses, blinding guitar solos and incredible rhythm but they also personified musical glamour like no other band: Big hair, extravagant clothing, fluent rock-star attitude and poodle dogs on every picture.

So first thing's first - yes, they're called the Poodles. It's a silly name (not as bad as Pink Cream 69 though) and brings to mind the derogatory term "poodle rock" they used to slag fellow Swedish band Europe with, but hey, maybe they're taking it back. Anyway, the Poodles are a modern melodic rock band that clearly loves the old "hair metal" style of rock from the `80s. Their debut is called Metal Will Stand Tall after all, and it's about as much fun as a rock n' roll album gets.

The Poodles lineup features members of some familiar bands in melodic rock and metal (Talisman, Lion's Share, Jekyll and Hyde), and their sound is like a hyper-charged, super-catchy mix of melodic rock icons both old and new. They've got a great mix of old Bon Jovi, Poison and Warrant as well as newer bands like Hardcore Superstar and especially Gotthard. This is music with huge guitar hooks, melodies that grab you instantly and songs that are custom-made for singing along. It's party rock, and it's fun as hell. Sample the title track if you're still on the fence. If that doesn't seal the deal, maybe you ought to rethink this whole rock thing (I kid, I kid). There's also a pretty rockin' cover of Ultravox's "Dancing With Tears in My Eyes."

Seriously though, this album is about as good as European melodic rock gets. If you think rock n' roll should be catchy and, God forbid, make you smile from time to time, you need to discover the Poodles, and Metal Will Stand Tall is the perfect place to start. I guarantee it won't be the last Poodles album you buy.

Edition Notes: AFM released a Limited Edition version of Metal Will Stand Tall in 2007. Housed in a digipack, this version contains three bonus tracks (alternate versions of regular album songs) and bonus videos. It's a nice upgrade, but probably not a mandatory one if you already had the first pressing.
