LOCATION : Porto, Portugal

Status : Split-up
Music : Folk Metal


MEMBERS :
Aelle : everything

Past members :
Chico : bass

JP : keyboard



HISTORY :
Formed in the begginings of 2005 as a doom and melodic black metal band, it split up in the end of that same year. Aelle continued the project as a one-man band. Recorded the old material (composed mainly by him), and composed more song and then, Europe's Revenge was released. Now, Weapon is a different and more complex musical approach, and although still a metal band, also became a folk, medieval and even ambient project as a natural evolution. Lyrcs deal with heathenism, history and mythology.
