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.

Steel Panther have been on a roll since their debut release, 'Feel the Steel,' in 2009. They've captured the hearts and naughty parts of fans worldwide, even gaining enough votes in our 2012 Loudwire Music Awards to be declared Live Act of the Year, beating out legends such as Metallica, Tool and Iron Maiden.

Stay tuned for further news on Steel Panther's third studio album, and remember ... Death to All But Metal!
