"Embers & Revelations" (Relapse; 2012)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

Canadian extreme metal entity Weapon returns with their best-produced album to date, the eight-track offering "Embers and Revelations."

This unit, originally formed in Bangladesh, culls a sinister juxtaposition of black, death, and traditional heavy metal and lets loose with raging fury (“Liber Lillith”) with a barrage of venomous vocals, eerie fretwork, and bellicose rhythms that properly pay homage to all that is evil at their devious dispose (“The First Witnesses of Lucifer”).

Stepping up from their prior works considerably, Weapon’s latest album is a solid effort that acknowledges the band’s journey down the highway to hell.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
