This 16-track album is a parody of power metal, in particular groups such as Manowar, Blind Guardian and Rhapsody of Fire. Quotes to other groups, metal and rock, are constant and numerous, and are present in both text and song melodies. The album is a great hit for audiences and critics by consecrating the band internationally.
Nanowar is a comedy heavy metal band from Rome, Italy. Their name is a pun on the metal band Manowar, and represents their tendency to satirize True Metal, the primary focus of their music. Their work mainly aims to make humorous references to and jokes about the genre, often parodying the way in which power metal bands are perceived to take themselves very seriously. In 2006 the band changed their name from Nanowar to Nanowar of Steel, as a parody of the Italian power metal band Rhapsody changing their name to Rhapsody of Fire after a legal dispute.
