Hellfest 2023. Elegant Weapons, led by Judas Priest guitarist extraordinaire Richie Faulkner and fronted by Ronnie Romero, Elegant Weapons is an exciting new project from some very experienced players.
Some had said supergroup, but they certainly have the line-up to excite. With the album Horns For A Halo released last month, they certainly demonstrated they mean business with a stellar debut.
Entering the Hellfest stage, this was a consummate performance. Faulkner and Romero bossed the stage, while drummer Christopher Williams from Accept and bassist Dave Rimmer from Uriah Heep were solid in support.
Playing riff-heavy songs from their debut album, Horns And Halos, Elegant Weapons played a rousing and impressive set that definitely marks them as a band to watch.
