Elegant Weapons yesterday released their debut album, ‘Horns for a Halo’, and have released a music video, for its title track.
Elegant Weapons comprises of Rainbow singer Ronnie Romero, Judas Priest guitarist Richie Faulkner, Uriah Heep bassist Dave Rimmer, and Accept drummer Christopher Williams.
“Unmistakably dark and brooding, light and dark, good and evil. A mid-paced blend of Birmingham and Seattle with a slice of thrash thrown in,” explains Richie Faulkner. “The title track ‘Horns For A Halo’ is like Tony Iommi crossed with Alice In Chains. It’s about the way we justify the bad things we do. When we turn up on Judgement Day, will the angels kind of confuse our horns for halos, if you know what I mean.”
The band’s earlier singles/videos, ‘Blind Leading the Blind‘ and ‘Do or Die‘, can also be viewed and heard via these links:

“We are very much looking forward to touring and our first tour dates are taking place in Europe starting in June 2023. Fans can expect heavy songs with catchy melodies, great vocals and lots of riffs! We all live to play live, and can’t wait to take the Elegant Weapons out onto the live stage.”
