So, something a little bit different for this week’s Video of the Week feature, as we celebrate the summer and shine the spotlight on to Nanowar of Steel with the visuals for ‘Norwegian Reggaeton’.
Taking the example of the likes of Skindred, the Italian parody metallers ask “what would happen if the black metal greats took a break from burning churches to dance?” by fusing a reggae beat with old school heavy metal guitars and a Steel Panther-esque sense of fun to create something fun that will get under your skin in no time at all! As the band themselves say: “We think that this song is a long due tribute to the metal community. It is by and large unfair that while everyone dances on the beach, flirt with ladies in bikinis and enjoy the summer, we metalheads have lacked the proper soundtrack to do the same. But now, this song will allow us to twerk, dance and mosh without losing our metallic dignity.”
