Steel Panther release ‘Black Metal’ version video for single “Let’s Get High Tonight”
Steel Panther consisting of frontman Michael Starr, guitarist Satchel, bassist Lexxi Foxx and drummer Stix Zadinia have released a ‘Black Metal’ version video for their single “Let’s Get High Tonight” from their latest studio album Heavy Metal Rules, which finished at #19 on the Sleaze Roxx Readers’ Top 20 Albums of 2019.
Sleaze Roxx stated the following with respect to that finish:
“Steel Panther have kept their streak of albums on the Sleaze Roxx Readers’ year end best albums list alive but just barely. The comedy glam metal rockers’ first two albums resonated very well with Sleaze Roxx readers since their debut album Feel The Steel finished at #3 in 2009 while their sophomore album Balls Out landed at #2 in 2011 (and just missed nabbing the top spot). From there, it’s been a bit of a downhill slide with All You Can Eat finishing at #7 in 2014 and Lower The Bar falling out of the top 10 by landing at #11 in 2017.
This time around, I really thought that Steel Panther‘s fifth studio album Heavy Metal Rules wouldn’t make the readers’ cut but at the end, they ended up tied for last place on the readers’ Top 20 for 2019 with the Suicide Bombers and Kickin Valentina. While finishing in the readers’ Top 20 albums of the year is likely a great result for most bands, I will venture to say that this has to be a disappointing finish for Steel Panther who are just too talented not to be near the top for every one of their releases. In other words, Steel Panther can do a lot better! It’s time for Steel Panther to stop their downhill slide on the Sleaze Roxx readers’ top albums of the year and reclaim their place near the top. One can only conclude that Heavy Metal Rules is the worse Steel Panther studio album to date. It’s also the only studio album from the band that didn’t crack Sleaze Roxx‘s Top Ten Albums of the year list.”
