EDITORS’ NOTES

With Steel Panther’s Feel the Steel, it’s obvious from the get-go that these guys adore metal almost as much as they love making fun of it. Their album cover features a band photo of them looking like something that Sunset Strip purged after bingeing on Poison’s wardrobe. And with song titles like “Asian Hooker,” “Fat Girl,” and “Eatin’ Ain’t Cheatin’,” there should be no doubt that these guys are in it for the laughs (and maybe the money, drugs and girls too). If some of these songs sound a bit like Van Halen, that’s because before birthing Steel Panther, they were in a VH cover band. But for serious metal disciples, Feel the Steel rocks with flawless athletic vocals, face-melting guitar leads, a solid bass player and one of those drummers who can probably maintain thunderous beats while looking you dead in the eye and simultaneously twirling a stick in one hand – but you’ll have to stop laughing to even notice.
