NANOWAR OF STEEL (Formerly know as NANOWAR) is a comedy heavy metal band from Rome, Italy. Everybody thinks their name is a pun on the metal band MANOWAR, but if you stick around and listen to this interview you’ll find out that is not the case. Their music, mostly in the early days represented their tendency to satirize the “True Metal” attitude made famous by many power-metal bands, often parodying the way in which these bands are perceived to take themselves very seriously. 

In November 2018 NANOWAR OF STEEL released their 3rd full-Length album  entitled Stairway to Valhalla, produced by Alessandro Del Vecchio (HARDLINE, REVOLUTION SAINTS) at Ivory Tears studio. The album was presented at the 2018 Edition of the Lucca Comics & Games festival, where they shared the stage with Italian TV legend Giorgio Mastrota, who made a surprise appearance. This release was followed by tens of club shows and festivals all around Italy, some of which were sold out. In June 2019 the band released a new single, entitled “Norwegian Reggaeton” which became an instant hit worldwide, hitting 2 million views on YouTube in the first two weeks of publication.

Longtime fan of the band, collaborator Michael Francisco took the chance to sit down and talk to the band bassist Edoardo Carlesi aka “Gattopanceri666” to expose many aspects of the band’s history, what their goal was with the recent single, the chances of getting signed by a major metal record label and much more.
