REVIEW AND PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJALA

 

American glam metal parody band Steel Panther returned to Finland just six months after the previous visit. Although there’s no new album to promote on this round it seems that there’s still  plenty of demand for these glam heroes. Last March, the Panthers played in front of 700 people in the sold out Club Nosturi and now there were about 1000 pairs of eyes packed into The Circus in Helsinki.

CLUB NOSTURI, HELSINKI

REVIEW AND PICS BY MARKO SYRJALA

Steel Panther from Los Angeles, are well known for their humorous lyrics as well as their exaggerated on-stage personas that parody and exaggerate the 80’s glam metal lifestyle. The band was formed in 2000 and the debut album FEEL THE STEEL came out in 2009. The sophomore release BALLS OUT followed in 2011. By their own words, Steel Panther are “the hottest band out of Hollywood since Motley Crue, Guns N’ Roses and Poison ruled the Sunset Strip” and it does seem that fans of those bands in Finland have accepted Steel Panther as their show here sold out within just few days.

Brian Posehn

Brian Posehn is a lifelong heavy metal fan in addition to being a popular actor, comedian and comic book writer. It would only make sense then; for Brian to team up with metal musician pals like Scott Ian (Anthrax) Satchel (Steel Panther) Joey Vera (Armored Saint) and John Tempesta (White Zombie, ex-Testament) to record two songs for the 2006 Relapse Records release "Brian Posehn – Live In: Nerd Rage" album. A disc that showcases the stand up routine of heavy metal’s resident funnyman alongside his first musical output. The result is hilarious to say the least, with the single "Metal By Numbers" gawking at "Nu-Metal" and "Emo" posers. The single even spawned a very silly music video.

Now riding a generous wave of notoriety from his work on the hit Comedy Central program "The Sarah Silverman Show" Brian is gearing up to record a follow up record. I caught up with Brian recently on a particularly drizzly afternoon at the second day of this years "Fun Fun Fun Fest" in Austin, Texas where he was performing his stand up routine on an eclectic  bill that also featured headliner Danzig and crossover legends D.R.I. amongst indie rock, alternative and hip hop acts. Brian filled me in on how he originally got into metal music, his plan’s for his metal band "Posehn" the upcoming season of "The Sarah Silverman Show" and his recently released zombie comic "The Last Christmas" You can expect quite a bit from Brian next year including a new album, touring and more laughs. Be sure to catch him live when he comes to town!
