AllYouCanEat

We have all been waiting anxiously for the new album All You Can Eat by Steel Panther and the time is almost among us! Only SIX more days to go!!! Well, as I told you last week about my secret… I got to hear the entire new album and have to say one thing…….. HOLY BALLS! THIS ALBUM IS FUCKING AWESOME!!

Steel Panther

 

It has everything you could want in rock and metal from anthemic rock songs, arena size ballads, blazing guitars, great harmonies, power house drums, sexy bass lines and those 80s style vocals that we can’t get enough of. There are some bad ass guitar solos, smokin riffs, catchy choruses, I just can’t tell you how epic this album will be.  The songs are fun and infectious and you can’t help but love them. Definitely a party album for any night of the week.  If they had a panty meter for this album, it would be a full on soaking wet one for this new album!  We will have to watch out for the next baby boom that will be coming 9 months after this release! It is a hot one!

It starts right off with Pussywhipped that has an acoustic flamenco style intro that will have all the ladies heating up and then takes you on a ride into a heavier rock/metal song, reminiscent of the great Iron Maiden. You are going to love this track and it has some dirty/distorted guitars that start the album off with a bang.

Next up is a favorite for all, Party Like Tomorrow is the End of the World. That was the first single we were all treated to and it fucking rocks. What better way to spend the last night on Earth than with sex, drugs, rock and roll Steel Panther style. Their video for the song is one of my favorites. Yes, they are campy and politically incorrect, but they can melt your face and rock you hard as they have the musical talent to back it all up.

You have a couple ballads on this album, like Bukkake Tears. It is complete with  melodic chorus, smokin guitar solos, and Michael’s vocals truly shine through on this one. Another ballad is The Burden of Being Wonderful.  This song is pure larger than life,another arena style ballad that we crave from them. You can’t help but imagine yourself back in the 80′s, partying at the stadium enjoying the loud music, having fun and living the carefree life and wishing you could be like the rockstars on center stage.

Another favorite on this album is Ten Strikes You’re Out and absolutely rocks. It is an in your face anthem style, fist in the air song. It has some of the best lyrics on the entire album and will have you singing along in no time.  Michael delivers his signature 80’s style vocals that we all love.  Satchel features his bad ass guitar riffs on this one. Definitely a favorite song of mine.

She’s On The Rag is probably the most varied song off the album where they take you to an edgier style with guitars and Michael’s vocals project a heaviness to this song that you can’t help but be drawn to. It is darker yet complete with a catchy chorus.

If I Was the King is by far my favorite song. This song reminds me of old style Halen/Poison and is just a FUN song. It includes the Death to All but Metal guitar lick and Michael signature scream. You will find yourself going back again and again to this song.

The entire album sounds so fucking crisp and clean. The guitars are full on ROCK and METAL, from fast shred to fierce guitar riffs, Satchel takes you on a wild ride with his Kramer. His solos have you drooling.  Lexxi Foxxx pounds out some slamming bass as you can already picture him whipping his hair and primping in the mirror.  Stix Zadina is a fierce madman on the drums and is smoldering on his double bass. Michael’s vocals are on target with every song.

What is funny, is that if you were not a fan of Steel Panther due it’s lyrical content only….Let me tell you: If you spoke a different language and didn’t understand any of the words, there would be no way you can deny that they have produced a 5 STAR FULL ON ROCK/METAL ALBUM that will satisfy your every need. You just can’t!  It really is just that good with excellent craftsmanship and set to 11! They really did a spectacular job on this one.  So if you are stuck on the lyrics, lighten up a bit buddy, and enjoy this new album because you could be missing your NEW FAVORITE ALBUM!
