Steel Panther drummer Stix Zadinia sees band doing more songs in heavier direction

Steel Panther drummer Stix Zadinia was recently interviewed by Amps And Green Screens, and spoke about the band’s new Lower The Bar Bitchin’ Edition, which is a limited edition picture disc vinyl release featuring two additional tracks inlusinf “Momentary Epiphany.”

Zadinia stated as follows about “Momentary Epiphany”: “Yeah, Satchel wrote that and it’s kind of different. It’s something different and we’re branching out. We do songs about partying, pussy, drugs, and heavy metal, and we love that, but sometimes you gotta get sensitive.”

In terms of the song “Now The Fun Starts” that can be found on the regular version of Lower The Bar, Zadinia advised: “Yeah, that one is heavy. I think that’s the heaviest song on the album in terms of the groove and the bass line. It’s a gnarly song, and I can see us doing more songs in that direction. Uptempo heavy metal songs are killer, but we’ve done a lot of them and it’s fun to play a little different style musically. It’s sexy rock to me. When you fuck a chick you can’t fuck her all one way; sometimes you gotta slow fuck her, you know?”

With respect to material for the next Steel Panther record, Zadinia stated: “You know, we’re perpetually writing to be honest. Ideas are flying back and forth for song titles, and we draw from experiences we have on tour because that’s what we’re always doing. It’s an ongoing process and we just need to decide what kind of record we wanna do next. And that’s what we’re discussing right now, you know?”

Steel Panther‘s fourth studio album Lower The Bar finished at #6 on the Sleaze Roxx’ Top Ten Albums of 2017. Sleaze Roxx stated as follows: “The problem that I think Steel Panther are starting to encounter is that they are now on year eight since the release of their phenomenal debut album Feel The Steel and they are still delivering the same type of songs. Now don’t get me wrong. I personally love it as just about anything that Steel Panther puts out music wise is brilliant. However, given that there isn’t that much evolution from Steel Panther‘s debut album Feel The Steel to their fourth studio album offering Lower The Bar, it could well be that people are starting to take the band a little bit for granted. After all, if Lower The Bar was the group’s debut album, odds are that everyone would be talking how great it is. In any case, Lower The Bar continues Steel Panther‘s fine tradition of very catchy songs filled with killer melodies and ridiculously demeaning and sexually charged lyrics. Once again, Steel Panther deliver some killer “ballads” (“That’s When You Came In” and “Wasted Too Much Time”), easy to like rockers (“Goin’ In The Backdoor” and “Poontang Boomerang”) and hidden gems (“I Got What You Want”) that make Lower The Bar just too good to ignore or leave out from the Sleaze Roxx’s Top Ten Albums of 2017.”

Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of Lower The Bar including the song “Now The Fun Starts”: ““Now The Fun Starts” is the worst song on the album but that being said, it’s still enjoyable and that’s a good sign when an album’s weakest track is still a good one to listen to.”
