Parody metal powerhouse Nanowar Of Steel blend comedy and vibrant Italian folklore on Italian Folk Metal!
Parody metal powerhouse Nanowar Of Steel turns to the musical roots of their homeland, bringing heavy new life to traditional Italian music on their new album Italian Folk Metal (out July 2 on Napalm Records)! Filled with references to Italian folklore, Nanowar Of Steel puts its own comedic metal twist on the various traditional sounds of their beautiful country. Each song on Italian Folk Metal is performed in a distinct style of Italian folk music: Napoli-based sounds of musica neomelodica clash with melodic guitar sweeps on “Scugnizzi of the Land of Fires“ and speedy accordions (prominently known from northern Italy‘s mazurka) are layered with dizzying guitar solos on “La Mazurka del Vecchio che Guarda i Cantieri“. The powerful blast beats and violins on Italian Folk Metal‘s album opener “L’Assedio di Porto Cervo“ prove that Nanowar Of Steel are absolute aficionados of both Italian folk music and heavy music. Mixed with the band‘s eclectic, comprehensive brand of catchy, comedy-infused metal, Italian Folk Metal is a truly multi-faceted listening experience and a deep dive into the roots of Italy’s folklore! In the process of recording the new album in Rome and Milan during the summer of 2020, Nanowar Of Steel took the Italian-focused theme as an opportunity to gather Italy’s crème de la creme of musicianship: the album features Francesco Paoli from FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE on “L’assedio di Porto Cervo”, Alessandro Conti of LUCA TURILLI’S RHAPSODY and TRICK OR TREAT fame on “La Mazurka del Vecchio che guarda i Cantieri” and FROZEN CROWN’s Jade on “Rosario“, among others. To top it off, Nanowar Of Steel’s bassist and singer Gatto Panceri 666 shows off his multilingualism on the bonus tracks “Der Fluch des Kapt’n Iglo” (performed in German) and “El Baile del Viejo que mira las Obras” (performed in Spanish). Italian Folk Metal showcases Nanowar Of Steel’s musical versatility at its best!
