“Rock and roll will swallow your soul. Stop crying and accept the inevitable.” — Merciless.
Guitar god Severiano Wada embraces the master shredders of the world, like Zak Wylde, Dimebag Darrell, Eddie Van Halen and George Lynch. For Seve, life is all about sizzling lead guitar and distortion-drenched rhythms.
Keyboard meistro Austin Farmer brings in decades-spanning classic rock and pop influences, like the ivory stylings of Prince, Rush, Journey and Muse. His synthtastic layering atop Seve's headbanging crunch is what gives Superweapon that planet-killing, layered sound.
Lead singer Merciless isn't shy about his idols. Those that croon of doom and destruction yet carry a powerful tune guide his melody and lyrical stylings.
"The dark gods of rock dictate my every move," Merciless said. "Evil ancients like Ozzy, Alice Cooper, Snoop Dogg, Sinatra and Till Lindeman (Rammstein) have shown me that rock and roll will swallow your soul. Stop crying and accept the inevitable."
