The band members are also called ‘War’, ‘Famine’, ‘Death’ and ‘Conquest’ – the four horsemen of the apocalypse or the angels of retribution. Armament has delivered a slew of unapologetic live performances in Kolkata and elsewhere.

The band has been named ‘Armament’ to propagate the idea of their music being weaponry for listeners to choose from. Armament writes music laced around lyrical themes of war(Wings of Death and War Machine), fear or power(Hammer of God), and also true incidents(Gas Chamber, which is based on the AMRI Hospital burning incident that shook Kolkata).

Armament is all set to launch their debut EP at Bangalore Open Air 2014 and also open for one of their major inspirations – Destruction, a massive step in the career of the band. Armament aims at establishing the idea of power and aggression through their music. The band wishes to spread its music across the span of the country wherever the kind of music they play and the culture they live by are duly appreciated.
