R.I.P. Wes Weaver (1972-2021)

According to numerous sources, Wes Weaver, composer and guitarist for Imprecation, Blaspherian, and Infernal Dominion, has passed away from multiple heart attacks earlier today. The band Imprecation issued a statement on his death:

Our brother Wes Weaver has crossed the fiery path. He solidified the sound of Imprecation when he joined us in mid 1992. Though he never wrote anything for the band, his distinct style and presence helped to shape us into our true form. His influence was mighty, and he always stuck to his guns. He changed our lives within, as well as the underground metal scene of Texas. He entered the homes of hundreds during his time with Sweet Nightmares on 90.1 FM and later with his radio show From the Depths. Words cannot describe our sorrow within Imprecation right now. Not only was he a great bandmate, but he was our brother. Rest in Power, Wes. We shall meet again one day.

We join them in mourning.

    His contributions to death metal remain eternal. RIP.

  2. MacCauley Crawford says:

    From what I have read he was born in 64, not 72, 56 is still too young, I messaged back and forth with him about the new Blaspherian, I hope there’s still something to be released, a true hessian warrior.

    Don’t forget “who” is desecrating your favourite tunes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dkNPyjeHRXQ who else but antekhrist

    Not quite to my taste, but I have been listening to Infernal Warriors of Death on and off today in rememberance. Rest in peace.

  5. Blaspherian was a great band. Wes will be immensely missed.

    Haha , this is cold: “Though he never wrote anything for the band…”.

    My niggas just HAD to point that out?

    1. Seldom Obscene says:

      When the band eventually sells out or simply makes a subpar album, certain reviewers will figure it’s all because Wes Weaver died, that Wes Weaver was the only creative force in the band all along and that all other band members were just hangers-on.

      Maybe the band wants to avoid that.

  7. R. says:

    According to Blaspherian’s last several Facebook postings, they were nearing completion or completed the new album. I wonder if they will bother to finish (if not already) and release it.

  8. metalmystic says:

    That dude was awesome and Blaspherian fucking rules, not a single blemish on their releases. Can’t say I’m surprised though that dude looked like he weighed 400 lbs last time I saw them live in Houston.

  9. Bereft says:

    Happy Onward to Golgotha Day to those of the ANUS

    No religious martyrs, no original sin, no eternal life

    Only death, and metal of death!

    I’m sure Wes wouldn’t mind.
