Profile “Balls Out” is the second brand new album American glam metal revivalists “Steel Panther”. It has been two years since their 2009 debut “Feel the Steel” and “Steel Panther” have developed into an international sensation is such markets as the United Kingdom and Japan beyond their home country.

“Steel Panther”s orientation on “Balls Out” is not dissimilar to that of their debut; totally uncensored lyrics delivering stories of rock stardom in the most sarcastic and enjoyable way possible. So fans that enjoyed the themes and attitude of their debut can not possibly go wrong with “Balls Out”.

Music wise, “Balls Out” is built substantially on riffs and grooves whereas “Feel the Steel” was mostly based on melodies. A good indicator of the above is the fact that keyboards have been reduced; hence the album is a guitar-bass-drums-vocals combo. Never the less, the album features a few melody-driven songs in “Just like Tiger Woods”, “Critter”, “Tomorrow night” and “That’s what girls are for”.

To their credit all four Panthers prove authorities in their respective instruments while one has to also acknowledge that “Balls Out” is as complete a glam metal album as it gets featuring a total of 14 tracks including their two singles “Seventeen girls in a row” and “If you really really love me”.

Conclusively you have to be a fan of “Steel Panther” to enjoy “Balls Out”. It really provides no evidence of the band slowing down, once again delivering the same brand of uncompromising, shameless glam metal.
