Hailing from Calgary, Canada, by way of Bangladesh, frontman Vetis Monarch and his blackened death metal crew, Weapon, have just unleashed a ripper of new full-length on Relapse Records entitled, Embers and Revelations. This third full-length offering from the band has garnered quite a stir amongst underground fans. Hell, even the mighty Pitchfork and black metal guru Kim Kelly, had this to say;
“Weapon are an atypical band. Blackened death acts are a dime a dozen, but the really good ones are more difficult to find. Even among that elite group, the pickings get slimmer as ideas get staler and the same riff seems to surface almost as often as that one awkward guy from Chem class who never quite learned to take a hint. Now, enter Weapon. Even within a field populated by those who take pride in slicing against the grain, founding vocalist/guitarist Vetis Monarch and his cohorts reach as far outside the box as they can without turning their backs on the subterranean darkness from whence they came. On 2009’s Drakonian Paradigm, they set their sights on greatness, with 201o’s From the Devil’s Tomb they took aim, and now, on Embers and Revelations, they pull the trigger.”
