Weapon Streaming Entire New Album

Weapon will unleash "Embers and Revelations" this coming October 9th and you can stream the entire new album through Invisible Oranges right here. The following press release was also issued about the album:

"Canada's black/death destroyers Weapon have made a name for themselves as one of the most crushing new bands to come along in the extreme metal underground over the past few years. After two successful underground LPs, the band announced earlier this year that they had joined forces with Relapse Records and would be recording their third full length offering. Soon after, the band embarked on one of the most evil tours of the year, joining forces with Marduk and 1349.

"The new effort is certainly the band's finest work to date and will find an instant connection to fans of Behemoth, Deicide, Morbid Angel and Septicflesh. The album artwork was created by Benjamin Vierling and can be viewed (along with pre-orders and a lyric video for the track 'Crepuscular Swamp, Unhinged Swine') at this location."

Weapon Finishes Recording New Album

The Canadian blackened death metal blasphemers from Weapon have completed the recording of their Relapse debut, entitled "Embers And Revelations." The band entered the studio on March 18th to self-record the new album along with producer Terry Paholek at The Physics Lab in their hometown of Edmonton, Canada.

Guitarist / vocalist Vetis Monarch commented on the upcoming album: "Weapon loyalists can expect no-holds barred, satanic death metal that the band displayed on it's previous work, but further refined and sharpened to ferocious perfection. Embers And Revelations will be the apex of malice via music."

Weapon Signs To Relapse Records

Relapse Records has today officially announced the signing of blackened death metal act Weapon.

Weapon (Vetis Monarch: guitars and vocals, Kha Tumos: bass, Apostle VIII: guitar, The Disciple: drums) has previously released two full-length albums including "From The Devil's Tomb" (2010), and the band is currently writing the follow-up album.

Vetis Monarch commented on the recent signing and upcoming album: "Weapon is ready to take over the world, and our signing with a legendary label like Relapse Records is a key element in achieving that goal. We are in the process of writing the follow-up album to 'From The Devil's Tomb', and all our supporters can rest assured that the new material is a direct continuation of the sinister and violent music we have delivered thus far. Onwards and upwards by the blessing of Lucifer..."

Weapon has confirmed a handful of western Canada tour dates for later this month alongside Toxic Holocaust and Holy Grail. The band will also perform at this year's Rites of Darkness Festival held in early December in San Antonio, TX.
