”Merry Christmas and a Happy new year, dear Friends, Brothers, and Sisters!

We want to take the opportunity to announce the end of The Poodles journey together as a band, and what an amazing experience it has been!

Over the last 12 years we have travelled the roads together, created beautiful music, faught, laughed, loved, and dreamed!

Alas, every ship must find a port e no matter how great the journey!

We have cherished every moment and every encounter along the way. We want to thank the many people who helped and collaborated with us, some only briefly, others for longer periods of time; all in the service of rock! You know who you are!

Also a very special THANK YOU to our fantastic fans and audiences for following us on the road, appreciating our music and for supporting us in every way! Without you, nothing of this would have been possible, we wish you all the very best!!!

Now, the future is yet to be written and we hope to see you soon, somehow, somewhere!

Salute and Farewell for now!”

Nice band,always had a wee spot for em,as mentioned Clash Of The Elements was pretty good as was the debut and for me Tour De Force,dont think they actually put out a bad album,wasnt a huge fan of the covers album though, definitely were on the slide with quality of output.

Fair call. They were a solid band and offered up some good stuff along the way. Not the worst move to go out before things got unfortunate. Shame their last offering is a covers album, though... even if it's actually a pretty good covers album, I'll admit. Solid band, but this news is okay by me. :)

Sad news. I was lucky enough to see them live years ago.

One of my favorite band.

Hope for new project from Samuel (anoter Kryptonite).

I have no doubt whatsoever that there will still be plenty of music from most or all of these guys.

What makes you think that? They are a serious rock band.

The only thing silly about them was their name, but not being English speakers by nature, maybe they did not realise how silly it is.

I read an interwiew with Jacob Samuel where He explain that he doesn't like demential stuff like Steel panther.

The name was inspired by great bands with animals name like Scorpions, white lion or whitesnake.

My fav was Sweet trade.

Never got into this band.  Were they sort of a Steel Panther thing?

I think at the time people compared them to Wig Wam, but definitely not have I ever heard a Steel Panther comparison. I certainly couldn’t name a single similarity between the two bands. ;)

I was posing a legitimate question, not making a statement.  As mentioned, I'm not familiar with the band at all. 

I must be thinking of someone else.  Not a complete spoof ala Steel Panther, but similar in nature.  Maybe that band that tried to sound like Def Leppard?  Even had a similar type of name.  Just not coming to me off-hand.  Fairly recent (last few years).

Loud Lion were the Def Leppard soundalike band, but once again, certainly not a comedy band like Panther.

Only bands I can think of in the style of Panther are Satanicide and Tragedy (both share some members), Skrapp Mettle and Bloody Stools. None of which are particularly recent (although Tragedy is an ongoing concern).

Are any of them any good?

Depends on which ones.

Tragedy are my favourite, but their gimmick mostly comes into its own live. Their albums started out as metal Bee Gees covers, but moved into covering other disco and pop artists as well. I really love most of their covers.

Satanicide is pretty cool too. Not amazing, but cool. They are not as crude as Panther though.

Skrapp Mettle isnt bad, but not amazing either. Features early JSS on vocals, so always worth having for completists. Once again, not as crude as panther, but they do have their smutty moments (Muff diving in the 80s).

Bloody Stools over all are closest with regards to crudity, but really lack any great songs. Not one I would tell people to go out of their way to find.

    • you can choose to use your own lyrics or just describe the premise and it generates them for you - the more detail you put in the closer it will be to what you want.You have 3000 characters of space.  You then describe how the song sounds.  It then creates 2 different songs, but you can carry on creating as many options as you want. You only get 10 songs a day though on the free options and you can't use commercially on the free version - you know like upload to Spotify etc. 
    • So I'm currently on my summer hols which gives me time to catch up on alot of music I have missed or haven't listened to in a while. Anyway yesterday I was listening to Broadside - Hotel Bleu ( great album btw). Now I have Spotify set to play similar artists once the album finishes and Honey Revenge were one of those artists. Liked the song I heard so checked out their debut album Retrovision and it's a cracker. The duo are Devin Papadol- vocals and Devin Lloyd - guitar and together have produced and album full of perfect pop rock. Highly Recommended and well worth a listen.   Full album ...  
    • So, I'll ask again, but what's the go here mate? Are they your lyrics?  Do you type in a specific genre and instrument combination? What about the melody? I should check it out myself when I have time, but I'm very curious. 
    • Nice, they love "Tiger Tiger" in Japan.  
    • VIXEN Announces New Singer ROSA LARICCHIUTA June 21, 2024 VIXEN has recruited Rosa Laricchiuta(TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA, HEADPINS),as the band's new lead singer following the recent departure of Lorraine Lewis. Laricchiuta made her live debut with VIXEN earlier tonight (Friday, June 21) at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California alongside GREAT WHITE, SLAUGHTER and QUIET RIOT.   Laricchiuta is a singer, songwriter, and performer from Montreal, Quebec. After several years cutting her teeth with live shows, she auditioned for the third season (2015) of "La Voix", Quebec's version of the popular TV show "The Voice". Rosa had an instant connection with the legendary francophone rocker Éric Lapointe and chose him as her coach. Rosa showed a solid stage presence, with remarkable intensity and a voice so powerful it sent her straight to the Grand Finale where she shared the stage with DEF LEPPARD, Kelly Clarkson, Jean Leloup and her idol, Melissa Etheridge. She left a lasting impression as she won over millions of viewers who named her the new "it" female rocker of Quebec.   She then released one album in the Quebec market before beginning work on her first English language album in 2016. That album, "Free", was released the following year and at the end of the year, she joined the popular American band TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRAfor their annual mega tour of the United States. Laricchiuta's hard rock project BLACK ROSE MAZE released its self-titled debut album in August 2020 via Frontiers Music Srl. VIXEN has more than a dozen more shows scheduled for the summer and early fall.
    • Huh, how odd. I just checked and it's indeed there. I guess I'm blind.
    • I see them both in my spotify?! Remixes sound good and better than originals to me!
    • How odd. It appears that only the first remixed album is on Spotify. I usually don't bother to listen to remixes, but I think I'll check this one out.
    • Apparently the first two H.E.A.T albums have been remixed and are on YouTube. I personally don't think there was anything wrong with the originals and some of these new versions seem overproduced to me, but I'll let you all judge for yourselves.
