Elegant Weapons unleash debut album title track

Horns for a Halo debut available now

Elegant Weapons drops the title track and video of their debut album, Horns for a Halo, both of which are available now. Comprised of Rainbow singer Ronnie Romero, Judas Priest guitarist Richie Faulkner, Uriah Heep bassist Dave Rimmer, and Accept drummer Christopher Williams, the song is the third single and video from the project.

“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 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 song follows “Blind Leading the Blind” and “Do or Die.”

Elegant Weapons’ debut full-length was produced by Faulkner’s Priest bandmate, Andy Sneap and features album performances by Pantera’s Rex Brown and Judas Priest’s Scott Travis.

The band will also soon be hitting the road in Europe beginning in June and running through July, which will include performances with Pantera, festival appearances, and also headlining their own shows.
