Italian Manowar Spoof Band Are 'Gay' And Proud

Italian power metal band NANOWAR have spoofed a well-known macho heavy metal legend with their album "Other Bands Play ... Nanowar Gay". Not only does the album cover spoof MANOWAR's "Fighting the World" album sleeve, it also twists the well-known MANOWAR battle cry from "slay" to "gay" and portrays the heroes in suitable VILLAGE PEOPLE-style attire. Needless to say, the album, with songtitles such as "Tricycles of Steel" and "Power of the Power of the Power (Of the Great Sword)", is the best-selling item on the newly opened rockdetector.com indie CD store too.

Based in Rome, NANOWAR comprises vocalist Potowotominimak, guitarists Gatto Panceri 666 and Mohammed Abdul, with Uinona Raider on drums. The band also targets RHAPSODY, re-working "Emerald Sword" as "Emerald Fork".

You can hear some samples and order the CD from rockdetector.com

Since when do Manowar need a parody band? They clearly do a good enough job of that on their own. Still, HAIL MANOWAR! \m/

Manowar kicks ass, although they lack lyrics they're still really good. Nanowar sounds really dumb but I'll see how it turns out...

The singer of Manowar dated on and off and hurt a girlfriend of mine pretty badly , even tore her up in the press once. The band is a f***ing joke and revenge is sweet. I'm sure she will love seeing this Nanowar thing. I sent it to her.
