Weapons of God is a Christian Metal band from Dayton, Ohio,
formed by singer/guitarist Steve McGowan in 2014.
The name of the band was inspired by the verses of the Bible,
Ephesians 6:10-20,“The Armor of God."

In 2016, they made their debut after veteran Singer/Guitarist Leon Black joined the band.

After being signed by Roxx Productions in 2018, they recruited veteran bassist Ed Girard (former member of "Four Star Revival") who joined the band, and in July 2019, their self-titled debut album, “Weapons of God” was released at the Chains Unchained festival in Aurora, Missouri.

Their sophomore album titled, “The War Within US” was released in September 2021, with both albums having had good reviews.

In late 2023, Jason Harmon joined the band as our interim drummer to make the current line-up.

As for the Weapons of God sound, they are rooted in the old school of Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, and Progressive Rock influences that stretch from Kiss to Stryper, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Zakk Wylde, and many others. Weapons of God, as a Christian Metal band offers through their lyrics and music an uplifting message that can be used to praise God,

for fellowship, and for spiritual warfare.
