As we don our leopard-print spandex and tease up our hair to maximum height, we can’t help but feel like we’ve been transported back to the glory days of 80s hair metal. And that’s exactly where Steel Panther wants us to be with their latest album, “On the Prowl.”
From the opening guitar riff of the first track “Never Too Late (To Get Some Pu**y Tonight)” it’s clear that Steel Panther is here to rock with some serious Van Halen keyboards. With tongue firmly planted in cheek, the band continues to delivers a collection of songs that pay homage to the debauchery and excess of the era, while also poking fun at it.
1987 is a classic Steel Panther anthem. This track is a basically a love letter to the bands that made hair metal back in the 80’s. The guitar work is top-notch, and the rhythm section keeps the song driving forward with a relentless pace.
But Steel Panther isn’t just about party anthems. “Porn Star” is a surprisingly poignant ballad about self-love and acceptance ????. It’s a refreshing change of pace, and shows that the band is capable of more than just raunchy humor.
One of the standout tracks on the album is “Friends with benefits” With its infectious chorus and catchy guitar riff, it’s sure to be a crowd-pleaser at live shows. And the lyrics, while still silly, have a certain charm to them.
Overall, “On the Prowl” is a solid addition to Steel Panther’s catalog. It may not be breaking any new ground, but it’s a fun and enjoyable ride through the excesses of 80s metal. If you’re a fan of the genre, or just looking for a good time, then this album is definitely worth checking out.
