Damage Incorporated

Metallica Biography Published 2006.
'Metallica opened its early live sets (and 'Kill em all' album) with 'Hit the Lights', a song that begins with a noisy two - chord flourish meant to evoke the opening of a concert. However, in a further illustration of NWOBHMs important role in Metallica's musical direction, the opening chords- drum fills and all seem to have been lifted directly from Weapon's 'Set the Stage alight', the 1980 release from the influential fledgling NWOBHM band.

Los Cabos

Weapon-UK drummer Darren Lee is now officially endorsed by Los Cabos Drumsticks! Darren commented "I've been using their Red Hickory sticks for the past couple of years and they are by far the most durable and well balanced sticks I've ever used, so I'm thrilled to now be part of the family! Fortunately I've been able to stock up before the run of European dates with Weapon-UK." Visit the Los Cabos website for more information.

Grimm Up North Fest – Bury

The old guard of NWOBHM was once again represented, this time by Weapon UK with the charm and wit of frontman Danny Hynes and the permanent smile of guitarist Jeff Summers still there. Kicking off with the frantic blink and you’ll miss it of the classics ‘Set The Stage Alight’, followed by the heavy blues and catchy choruses of ‘Ride The Mariah’. Other highlights were the drum driven sleazy rock of ‘Warrior’, pounded out by Darren Lee, the speaker blowing main riff of ‘Wonderland’, the bona fide headbanger of ‘Bloodsoaked Rock‘, the barroom grooves of ‘Bad Reputation’ but pick of the bunch was a truly awesome cover of ‘The Rocker’with bassist Tony Forsythe laying down a rock solid backing as Jeff riffed and soloed.
