The outrageous and popular ’80s-style “hair” band STEEL PANTHER will release its new album, “Balls Out”, on October 18. The CD’s first U.K. single will be “If You Really, Really Love Me”, an audio sample of which can be heard in the YouTube clip below. (Note: The first single in the U.S. will be “17 Girls In A Row”.)

01. In The Future
02. Supersonic Sex Machine
03. Just Like Tiger Woods
04. 17 Girls In A Row
05. If You Really, Really Love Me
06. It Won’t Suck Itself

10. Gold-Digging Whore

14. Weenie Ride

In a May 2011 interview with Guitar InternationalSatchel stated about the recording process for “Balls Out”, “We’ve been recording since last August and we’ve been tracking five songs at a time so we focus intently on a few songs rather than all 15 at once. We’re just finishing up the last five now and they all sound amazing. I would say that out of the 15 songs we’ve recorded, there are at least 10 or 12 No. 1 singles in there.”

When asked what lessons STEEL PANTHER learned from its 2009 debut,“Feel The Steel”, that he and his bandmates applied to this new album,Satchel said, “It’s funny because we haven’t learned any lessons from our first record. We don’t even think of it as our sophomore album, we think of it as our second debut release. Many bands will try to make a different-sounding record for their second release, but we couldn’t really get any better than our first record. Our first record was awesome, so we decided to go in and make the same record for our second album, just better. We didn’t really grow as writers. We didn’t grow as musicians. In fact, I think I got a little bit worse . . . But because of that it’s much better. It’s kind of like a fine wine. If you let it sit there and let it get moldy, that’s what they do with wine, right? Then you let the mold fester in the bottom of the bottle, that’s what our music is like on this record. We’re like a moldy cheese that’s been left out in the sun all summer. You wouldn’t think that it would taste good at the end of the summer, but surprisingly, it does. That’s us in a nutshell.”

Featuring vocalist Michael Starr (real name Ralph Saenz; ex-L.A. GUNS), guitarist Satchel (real name Russ Parrish; ex-FIGHT), drummerStix Zadinia, bassist Lexxi Foxxx, and SatchelSTEEL PANTHER(formerly known as METAL SKOOL) is a parody heavy metal band from Los Angeles, known for its profane and humorous lyrics. The group’s over-the-top live performances have attracted celebrities and fans alike, and in February 2009 the band succeeded in becoming one of the most popular cover bands in California, winning the contest of “Best Tribute Band in the Universe.”

Sauna Open Air – Tampere Finland

August 14th, 2010

Sauna Open Air (Etelä Puisto, Tampere, Finland, 10. – 12.06/10)
Article and pics by Petri Da Costa


Sauna Open Air is pretty much the kick-off for the ”Festival Season” here in Finland and the first metal festival of the summer. This year, according to the organizers, there was a total audience of 23.000, with just the first day (Thursday) sold out. There was a feeling that this year’s SOA wasn’t a big hit among the fans. You could see already that from the last two days, which seemed kinda empty. Maybe it was because of the old money issue for the fans or maybe they weren’t that much interested in seeing some bands that seem to play quite often in SOA or other festivals.

From Hell’s Heart – Comedy in Metal (Jan 2010)

January 31st, 2010

COMEDY METAL

Jan. 2010

FHH.png

An extremely rare, but high profile sub-set of Metal releases are comedy albums. A few rare bands decide to release and record albums of metal that are strictly based on humor. Are these parody acts loving tributes or a tongue in cheek, kick at a genre that at times takes itself very seriously? Are these bands worthy of the definition of metal for bringing a new face to the genre, or to be shunned for crude and mean-spirited attempts to make fun of something they don’t understand? Metal comedy. Worthwhile or worthless?

Brian Posehn

November 15th, 2009

 Brian Posehn 1.jpg

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!
