Steel Panther are back with their second offering 'Balls Out' and I know there has been a lot of speculation on what this album would have to offer. Would they tone down the parody, derogatory comments and sexual content? Would they attempt to release something more original? Would they play down their Metal Skool past?
Quite simply the answer to all of these questions is a resounding NO.
But if you're a Steel Panther fan, then this album will just give you more stuff to shake your booty to. If you're not a Steel Panther fan and 'Feel The Steel' did nothing for you, then this one isn't going to either.

The opening monologue 'In The Future' lends you to believe that they may be going a little less crass, but it quickly goes back to the Panther we know and love.
With tracks titled '17 Girls In A Row', 'Let Me Cum In' and 'It Won't Suck Itself' the album does exactly what it says on the tin. And they've kept the lyrics Panther-esque but refreshed it by covering topical subjects like the Angry Birds game and disgraced celebrities Charlie Sheen and Tiger Woods.
If you're the kind of person that likes to try before you buy, then don't worry, they've thought about a fun way for you to do it. Instead of just uploading videos to YouTube or clips to SoundCloud they've released a website where you can listen to each track while playing mini games which will involve sticking weiners in donut holes, licking an ice lolly and popping your cork. You get the theme going on here, so head over to http://steelpantherrocks.co.uk for a bit of light hearted fun.
Steel Panther have laid their balls on the table and it's down to you to go and grab them while you can.
