Steroid Puppets 

Intense, Textural, Articulate


Steroid Puppets is an Israeli super group made up of guitarist Ben Azar, Bassist Or Lubianiker and drummer Nir Nakav. The three of them are trained, professional working musicians that have played with many other talented and respectable artists such as Marty Friedman (Megadeth, Cacophony), Steve Vai, Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal (Guns n Roses), Tosin Abasi (Animals as Leaders), Gus G (Ozzy Ozbourn), Salem, Infected Mushroom and DJ Skazi.

The band was created from Ben’s vision as he wanted to make music which combines the Intense energy and preciseness of metal, with the dynamics, intricate melodies and rich harmonic landscapes of jazz/fusion music with modern multilayered production that gives the listener/viewer a fresh audible experience.

The band launched their debut album ‘Earthguest’, which was released in May 2022 and guested the ex megadeth guitar legend Marty Friedman. The album immediately swept thousands of listeners from more than 100 countries around the world, was placed in more than 700 Spotify playlists including some editorial ones, and received much praise from various reviews. 

“With larger than life riffs and explosive rhythm sections, you don’t need to listen for long to realize that each member of Steroid Puppets possesses outstanding technical ability. For headbanging, or to sit down and listen to every tiny detail, this project works both ways”

Their debut album “Earthguest” is 42 minutes of fresh compositions that rival the best in the aforementioned sub-genres in all aspects: playing, production and songwriting."
