NANOWAR OF STEEL reveals music video for new single “Uranus” feat. Michael Starr (STEEL PANTHER)

Kings of masterful Heavy Metal parodies NANOWAR OF STEEL bless the world with yet another spectacular music video for their new single “Uranus”, featuring none other than glam icon Michael Starr of the legendary STEEL PANTHER! Showing off their incredible choreography skills in shiny space suits, NANOWAR OF STEEL dance their way straight into your heart – and Uranus!

Michael Starr (STEEL PANTHER) says about the video for “Uranus”:
“This video will make your penis bigger with one view. The more times you view it, the bigger your penis will get. You’re welcome.
“Uranus” is a must watch video. It’s the only way to have your first eye orgasms. A fun video with a great story line. If you don’t like this song you must be deaf. If you don’t like this video you must be blind.”

Gatto Panceri 666 of NANOWAR OF STEEL adds about the video for “Uranus”:
“I know, this joke has been used and abused since 1781, from the very first day William Herschel discovered this planet. However, being a practicing astronomer and a professional idiot, I felt I had more right to use it as the subject of a song to be dignified with a Lady Gaga-level video (in all humbleness).
Perhaps it won’t be the most original pun ever, but one thing we can tell you for sure: this joke turned out to be the most expensive one we’ve ever told so far!”

Video: RAMPART performs new song at Wacken Open Air 2017

Video footage of RAMPART’s new song „Napalm Stars” performance at this year’s Wacken Open Air in Germany can be seen below. The song is from the upcoming in 2018 fifth album of the band “WWII: Memories for the Future”.

“Napalm Stars” is in fond memory of the bombing of Dresden by the Allies in February 1945 that took place during the Second World War in the European Theater. Around 25,000 people were killed, although larger casualty figures have been claimed. For reducing Dresden to ashes was invented and used for the first time napalm.

„No doubt an undisputed high point in Metal in 2017 was the Wacken Open Air. A festival full of extremes: huge crowds, rain and mud, new friends, long roads, and us in between all this craziness”, comments the vocalist Maria Diese.

RAMPART are planning a DVD from their performance at Wacken Open Air 2017.
