Standard

This week is the highly anticipated conclusion to this most unholy and unclean trilogy of vinyl releases with Steel Panther’s album All You Can Eat. Released on April Fools Day in 2014, this album is surely no joke. Ok, well… maybe a little bit but that’s beside the point. This album rips just as hard as any of their other output thus far. I found the production to be a bit on the weak side but it stays true to their sound and the era that they so obviously worship at the alter of. Speaking of worshipping at the alter, you can see where this album’s visual theme is headed. As for the music, this album is jam-packed with all the raunchy debauchery that one expects out of Steel Panther.

Vinyl Wednesday: Steel Panther – Feel The Steel

Standard

Colorful. Brash. Wild. Parody. Vulgar. Sexist.

There are many ways that one can describe Steel Panther. They are truly an honest-to-God love ’em or hate ’em style of band. I love them. Naners hates them. There’s no in-between with a lot of people. I went to see them while living in Chicago and they were awesome. They played all the raunchy jams that I hoped they would and it was full of faux 80s debauchery. It couldn’t have been any better.

I wasn’t always a huge fan of the band though. I remember when Jason (from Kustom Persuasion) would want to play me something from this album and I just couldn’t get into it. I didn’t listen to lyrics. I didn’t listen to the musicality. I just didn’t care. I’m not totally sure why it didn’t initially resonate with me but I eventually caught on. One day the clouds parted and I became enlightened and I will now forever annoy Nancy with their mysical stylings.

Vinyl Wednesday: As I Lay Dying – Awakened

Standard

Vinyl Wednesday comes back at you without much commentary this week. The choice for this week: As I Lay Dying’s 2012 album “Awakened”. Artwork was handled by metastazis and Tiffanie Uldry. It’s got a real killer Art Nouveau look to it all. I very much dig this. Naners and I are both huge fans of Alphonse Mucha and the whole artistic movement so this is definitely an album I wanted in my collection.

As I said before, this week won’t have much commentary so hit the jump and dig deep into the images. Check out all the killer illustrations and amazing typography within this beast.
