Swedish rockers The Poodles are set to release their 4th Studio album, Performocracy through Frontier Records, on April 15th 2011 (18th in the UK) and if their lead single, Cuts like a knife is anything to go by then I think this is going to be one of their most polished releases to date.

After the crushingly good time fun of the first album, the slightly flat second and the very mature and sophisticated 3rd, it looks like the winning formula across all three has been combined very nicely.

I still yearn for Metal Will Stand Tall type anthems and this one hits the mark, catchy, full bodied and very musical.

Expect a review shortly but in the meantime here are the vital stats.
