This is the third full-length album from Metalucifer, a Japanese band playing – you guessed it! – heavy metal…
Heavy Metal Rules is the fifth studio album by American heavy metal band Steel Panther, released on September 27, 2019. The album is named after the "philosophy" of the "Zebraman" from the 1986 documentary film Heavy Metal Parking Lot. California’s greatest export and professional life coaches Steel Panther are celebrating the release of their new album the only way they know how; with a full-on sensory overload as only the Panther can. “This is the record you put on when you’re getting ready to go out and party. This is the record you put on when you’ve had a bad day at work. This is the record you put on when you wanna practice making babies. This is the record you ALWAYS just put on. Why? Because….HEAVY METAL RULES,” explains Steel Panther.
After contributing the song "World War III" to Shrapnel Records' U.S. Metal, Vol. 2 compilation, Exciter promptly signed with Shrapnel and recorded their full-length debut, Heavy Metal Maniac, in 1983. Though their debt to Judas Priest was clear for all to see (starting with their name, of course), the album packed a hard-edged ferocity and love for speed that pushed it well beyond the bounds of "classic" heavy metal and into the realms of the then-nascent speed metal movement..

California glam metal jokesters STEEL PANTHER will release their fifth studio album, "Heavy Metal Rules", on September 27. The disc, which is described in a press release as a "heavy metal version of a self-help manual and ultimate party album combined," was once again produced by Jay Ruston, who collaborated with the band on all of its previous recordings, including its latest LP, 2017's "Lower The Bar". The band says in a statement: "'Heavy Metal Rules' is the ultimate party album. Anthem after anthem and hook after hook, the songs will provide the soundtrack to your new bitchin' heavy metal life. The first single, 'All I Wanna Do Is Fuck (Myself Tonight)', is the ultimate song about self-love and having a positive personal self-image. It is the kind of song you put on to get yourself in the mood whether you're getting ready to have sex with yourself or 17 girls in a row."
