Some might say: "Glam metal is dead and a memory of the 80'ties."
But Steel Panther strikes back with 'Feel the Steel' and makes you see that Glam metal isn't dead at all. This album was released in 2009 but has the sound, image and feel of a real hair metal album of the 80'ties.

The first track on 'Feel the Steel' is 'Death to All But Metal'. It's a remake of the version that can be found on the album 'hey, that's what I call Sludge' by the magazine metal Sludge All-Stars. This song has the Glam metal sound and a very clear message: Dead to mainstream music!

This album is fun to listen to, in every sense. Combined with the nostalgic glammy sound, this album is filled with jokes and hints concerning sexuality and the not so bright sides of men. 'Turn out the lights', for example, is satirical song about sex with a quite fat girl. Steel Panther is straight forward and uncompromising in its lyrics. Discretion and censorship is unknown to these guys.

Several well-know artist from the Metal scene are guests on this album. Corey Taylor of Slipknot and Scott Ian of Anthrax for the song 'Asian Hooker'. Or what did you think of a duet of Steel Panther and M. Schadows (Avenged Sevenfold) or Justin Hawkins (The Darkness). It's all possible and adds diversity to this album.

Sadly enough, this album offers a whole storm of so called 'dick jokes'. This is not always very interesting to listen to because all clichés and jokes come past in this Metal album.

Finally, this metal album brings back a sound that makes the listener dream of the golden age of Glam Metal. Meanwhile Steel Panther adds fun, satirical lyrics, a little cliché to make a quite good combination of all elements needed for Glam metal but it may become a bit boring sometimes.
