Weapon (band) - CLOSED

The band announced on June 28, 2013 that they had broken up. Since that announcement, Vetis Monarch has said that he has immersed himself in the corporate world and felt that further Weapon albums would only "be a black/death metal record by the numbers", which he felt would be stagnation. He also spoke critically of the general fanbase of heavy metal and the related culture, saying that 

"90% of metalheads have been some of the dumbest and most ignorant people I have ever met. I no longer wish to be even remotely associated with that brain-dead, gas-masked goat culture in any way shape or form. Not that Weapon ever pandered to that specific bottom-feeding niche, but they’re around, and I felt myself being dumbed-down by even hearing these so called 'elitists' have conversations about their patch vests, the latest third rate war metal franchise or the newest oxymoronic 'anticosmic' band ripping off Thomas Karlsson’s words and book cover" 

Despite his comments about metal fans, Vetis Monarch proclaimed his ongoing appreciation for metal music.
