Heavy metal's living (as of this post) legends Steel Panther have been making progress on their upcoming third full-length album. Since the release of 'Balls Out' in October 2011, Steel Panther presumably have been celebrating the album's success with mountains of cocaine covered in groupies, but after finally coming down from the binge, the Los Angeles quartet are back in the studio.
Live Act of the Year proved to not only be one of the most popular categories of the 2012 Loudwire Music Awards, but also the most surprising in terms of the final result. With monster acts such as Metallica and Slipknot breathing down their necks, comedic heavy metal act Steel Panther have captured the crown of Live Act of the Year.
Steel Panther are off to a solid start with their first-ever DVD, 'British Invasion,' as the release landed at No. 2 on the Billboard Top Music Video chart. And the band is making it worth your while to pick up the home video early, since the initial run of the DVD comes with a limited edition cover that will be available only while supplies last.
Sunset Strip heavy metal humorists Steel Panther are about to blast fans in the face with the awesome concert film 'British Invasion.' Steel Panther lovers have been anxiously awaiting the 'British Invasion' DVD, which took the band over two years to film, as they began the project in March 2010. Graciously giving fans a sneak preview of the film, Steel Panther are unleashed live footage from the song 'Fat Girl,' exclusively through Loudwire.
From the moment of their inception, Steel Panther reversed the 'Nirvana effect' and have once again secured heavy metal's place as the world's most important genre. When Steel Panther say, "Heavy metal's back!" or "Death to All But Metal," they aren't just spouting out catchphrases, they're redefining an entire genre of music in the single most impressive way, by keeping it exactly the same.
