Relapse Records has announced the signing of the blackened death metal juggernaut WEAPON.
Weapon (Vetis Monarch: guitars and vocals, Kha Tumos: bass, Apostle VIII: guitar, The Disciple: drums) have previously released two full-length albums including the acclaimed From The Devil’s Tomb (2010). Weapon is currently writing the follow-up to From The Devil’s Tomb, which promises to be a more vicious strain of their all-out-evil blackened death.
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..."
