(mostly a repost from livejournal, so sorry if its a bit messy)
Genre: Power Metal, Parody, True Metal
About: The ultimate (only?) power metal parody band. Their song "Emerald Fork" includes the lyrics "F*ck you Bin Laden", so that is what made me think to post this. This was their first album, and despite bad production and bad playing it's great.
01- TRUE METAL OF STEEL
03- THE ONLY FOREST OF THE TRUE METAL AND THE OTHER HEAVY MINERALS
04- OUR METAL IS SO STRONG 'COS OUR DICK IS SO LONG
05- EMERALD FORK (Rhapsody Remake-Cover)
06- MASTER OF PIZZA (Metallica Remake-Cover)
08- VAI GATTO PANCERI (BONUS TRACK)
Website (with myspace, facebook links, etc):
According to their myspace, they are working on a "new gay album of steel", tentatively titled "Metropolis Part 3: The Legacy", which they discuss in the Made in Naples live album. But they are busy being lazy and kvlt so it may be another year before we can hear it. They are also touring (unfortunately only in some foreign countries) on the "Goalkeeper of the Seven Keys pt. 4 Tour 2009" and videos can be found on their facebook page. Hope you enjoy, ciao.
Download Nanowar Of Steel - TRIUMPH OF TRUE METAL OF STEEL (2003)
(free and legal, from their official site):
Download other two (more recent) albums:
Nanowar - OTHER BANDS PLAY, NANOWAR GAY (2005)
www.nanowar.it/2005_OtherBands.rar - This has grown to be their most popular album, with classics like "Tricycles of Steel", "Power of the Power of the Power (Of the Great Sword)", and "The Number of the Bitch".
Nanowar - MADE IN NAPLES (2007)
www.nanowar.it/2007_MIN.rar - Half of this album is a live concert, and it really shows how much they have progressed as a band. I really hope i can see them live one day, but alas they are across an ocean. Live versions of the songs in the first two albums tend to be even more hectic and awesome live. The second part is new recordings, whether live or studio. There is a mini-story, with song titles like "T.K.D.Y.N.S. (To Kill the Dragon You Need a Sword)", "Fight the Dragon (For the Village)", and Christmas with nanowar is a beautiful ballad of steel with a thrash metal interlude about santa claus. :)
