Hollywood Burnouts are a sleaze metal band from Germany. Now, sleaze metal has seen a slight resurgence over the past few years with classic 80s bands like Motley Crue and Poison enjoying renewed popularity while newer bands like Steel Panther are gaining large fan bases. The problem with playing this type of music though is the possibility of going too far into self mockery… like Steel Panther. Fortunately, although the Burnouts are outrageous, they don’t take it to Spinal Tap proportions.

The result is a surprisingly good sleaze metal album circa 1983. Think albums like Twisted Sister’s Stay Hungry, W.A.S.P’s self-titled debut, Motley Crue’s Too Fast For Love and anything by the Scorpions and you’ll know what to expect. This is a great debut that, while listening to it, brought out the kid in me. If you think “Shout At the Devil” is a work of art and that “Pyromania” is a classic, then pick up Excess All Areas for a good time.
