Skrapp Mettle – ‘Sensitive’ (1991) – Album Review (The Jeff Scott Soto Series)

I think most people know of the band Steel Panther. A band that parodies the 80’s rock scene but has lyrics that are filthy, dirty and yet funny…to a point. Back in 1991, we actually had a band that did that exact same thing. That band was Skrapp Mettle. However, they weren’t a parody of the 80’s rock scene because they were still in the 80’s rock scene. They did have the naughty lyrics and let me tell you, they are raunchy and raw. It is pretty telling about how the metal scene was already laughable before it was even over and tells you how far it had fallen.

The one thing about this band and that is they don’t take themselves very seriously. And if you don’t believe me, look at the name of the band members:

  • Spunk – lead vocals
  • Nasty Gerbil – keyboards
  • Snuff Buzzsaw – guitars
  • Beef – bass
  • Pounder – drums
  • Dirk Vespucc – special vocal effects

Jeff Scott Soto only agreed to do this if his name was left off the album jacket and by the way, he is Spunk.
