Hollywood Burnouts’ new album Excess All Areas is a grand tribute to all the sleaze metal bands of the past in both look and sound. While some of you may scoff at the band and their over the top image, I personally loved the album and thought it was a fun offering that reminded me of why I got into metal in the first place. Singer Mike Nazzty was gracious enough to shed some light on the band, so crank up the album and read this interview!
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.
