Weapon Spill Blood and Worship Satan in “Embers and Revelations” Video
Last week, Relapse unveiled the new music video from Canadian black/death hellraisers Weapon, and it’s a doozy. The band’s third album, Embers and Revelations, was released earlier in 2012, and Vetis Monarch & Co. filmed their first-ever music video to the tune of the menacing title track. True to form, it’s dark, bloody, and Satanic, with a dose of esotericism and menace.
Vocalist and guitarist Vetis Monarch explained:
“This is the first official, professionally done WEAPON music video. Choosing one song off of Embers and Revelations was tough, but we finally decided on the title track of the album because it represents what WEAPON in 2013 so aptly: violent, mystical, cathartic. The video was filmed / edited by Dan Wilberg and his cohorts (who also filmed the entire making-the-album series of Embers and Revelations); suffice to say, the experience was quite different for us, being in front of a bunch of cameras and such… very different from a live concert setting. The underlying theme of the video is that of rebirth, which is in essence the underlying theme of the new album, and WEAPON itself. We also hint at some Aghori-esque elements, and we have expanded on my appreciation of daemonic principles of the female form. This video is truly a great visualization of the ideology within our music.”
