    Why Elegant Weapons?
    In almost any endeavor, the craftsman needs the right tools for the job. For a musician, those tools are things like their instruments, their voices and the emotions that the right combination of all those can bring to the surface. So yes, it references our instruments and also this kind of music, where we’re carrying on the tradition of the greats like Sabbath and Dio but also bands the guys are connected to, like Rainbow, Pantera and Priest.”
    As for the music, Richie describes it as “a mix of Jimi Hendrix, Priest, Sabbath, solo Ozzy and Black Label Society, but with a lot of melody, sort of old school and modern at once if that makes any sense, and actually down-tuned a whole step. The Marshall Plexi basically does one thing, but you’ve got to crank it to 11 for it to have that distorted sound. It hasn’t got a lot of bells and whistles on it or different channels and effects. It basically does one thing and does it very well. But again down-tuning creates more of a modern sound, and by using the classic sound of the Marshall Plexi, you get that juxtaposition, that contrast. All told, there are a lot of guitar solos and the songs are on the heavier side. And even though there’s a lot of melody, it’s still going to shake your bones.”

The Falcon, Richie, Thank God you survived your heart condition and came back with a Vengeance with a lineup of badass musicians and an album full of heart, mastery and metal magnificence. As we say in my tradition, NAMASTE [the divine (metal) light in me bows to the divine (metal ) light in you!]. FYI: this moment in Houston was one of the highlights of my life - -you are interacting and tossed me the pick which I gave to a kid in front of me. Sooooo fun! krclip.com/video/JGH2b2ecjJs/비디오.html. To me, you are the greatest guitarist alive today. ROCK ON!

    I am gonna have several comments as I listen to this through... but what I hear very clearly is the influence of Richie living in Nashville and hanging around with guys like Jared James Nichols. Aside from all of the classic rock/metal stuff, that is what really shines. There is a very 'American' feel to some of these passages. Specifically Ghost of You, and Bitter Pill.
