The Darkness is back together and releasing a new album in early 2012. Steel Panther pretty much parody 80's hair metal. They're slightly serious though
    yeah about as serious as spinal tap

    if you have to ask if this band is serious....get a sense of humour, they completely rip the shit out of the 80's metal scene....but they are ****ing amazing musicians as well and great song writers.

    I don't think it's quite as good as good as Feel the Steel -- or at least the songs aren't, individually -- but this albums just sounds damn good. And this album is less of a parody than their last album, the way I see it. On this one, it's still sometimes easy to pinpoint the style they were going for, but there are less direct parodies of particular songs. It's still ridiculous, though, in the best possible way.

    Technically under the "Steel Panther," name, it is their second release. Anyways. I love all the songs on this album except for about two.
