We theoretically analyze the effect of the inversion symmetry breaking on the structure of the impurity molecular states in Weyl metals. We show that for the case of a highly noncentrosymmetric Weyl metallic host, the standard picture of the alternating bonding and antibonding orbitals breaks down, and a qualitatively different frustrated atomic state emerges. This is a consequence of the pseudogap closing and related delicate Fano interplay between intra- and interimpurity scattering channels. (AU)
