As political correctness suffocates and squeezes the last drop of fun from popular culture, four men boldly plant their flag (and maybe another appendage)into the ground in the name of heavy metal. Steel Panther—Michael Starr [lead vocals], Satchel [lead guitar], Lexxi Foxx [bass] and Stix Zadinia [drums]—have certainly waved the flag for sex, drugs and metal to the point of keeping this holy trinity alive since emerging in 2000. However, they fulfill (i.e. engorge)this mission to its fullest potential on their fifth full-length, the aptly titled Heavy Metal Rules. The solos screech louder, the vocals soar higher, the drums hit harder and the bass throbs mightier than ever before.
Starting with 2009’s full-length debut, “Feel The Steel”, brought the balls back to rock as “Balls Out”let them fly free in 2011 as Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger, guitar god Nuno Bettencourt and Dane Cook joined in on the madness. Three years later, “All You Can Eat”arrived to a 4-out-of-5K review from KERRANG!and kudos from Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor who described it as “top to bottom so damn good.”2017’s “Lower The Bar” earned praise from Metal Hammerand Classic Rockas the group’s cumulative streams surpassed 100 million and views leapt past 100 million by 2019.
