List: Most Annoying Voices

I was having a conversation with a couple friends the other day. We were discussing a few bands and the thing that kept coming up was the voice of the vocalist. As we were chatting a list was starting to be made and why not make this a fun collaborative list! This list doesn’t necessarily mean they are terrible just that their voices aren’t easy to listen to (high pitched, nasally, obnoxious, etc). So, here we go…

New Release: Coheed and Cambria- Shoulders

Coheed and Cambria unveil new song "Shoulders": Stream

A brand new Coheed And Cambria single titled “Shoulders” has made its way online. A lyric video for the track is available below, while further details on the band’s release plans for their upcoming tenth studio album have yet to be revealed. This song definitely has some No World For Tomorrow vibes throughout as well as a tinge of Year Of The Black Rainbow. It’s also a nice little change of pace too.

Title Tracks: Coheed and Cambria- In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth

The more and more I listen to Coheed and Cambria, I keep finding endless things to love about this band. The musicianship, the concept, the lyrics, etc, it all shows how damn talented this band is. One of the songs that I’ve been stuck on of theirs is, “In Keeping Secrets Of Silent Earth: 3.” This song is epically huge, a bit proggy but, full of rock. As a title track, it’s pretty spectacular. Live this song is even more powerful. Over the years too, it’s become a live staple. Interestingly too, this was the third single from the album of same name.

Best Guitar Solos: Coheed and Cambria- Welcome Home

Coheed And Cambria - Good Apollo I'm Burning Star IV Volume One: From Fear  Through The Eyes Of Madness (Vinyl) : Target

Coheed and Cambria is one of those bands that takes a bit of time to get into. There’s so much under the surface to the band, music, and lyrics. One thing though is the musicianship and songwriting in the group is stellar. On the band’s third album, Good Apollo, I’m Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through The Eyes Of Madness, there is a song called “Welcome Home.” This track is epic and fantastic. The band fought hard to make this the first single from the record and it was well worth it. The guitar solo alone in this song is something awesome and live it’s even better. I really have to acknowledge how talented Claudio Sanchez and Travis Stever compliment each other with their playing and as a guitar duo. “Welcome Home” is a perfect example of why Coheed is a very underrated band.

Cover Song Collaboration: Coheed and Cambria, Mastodon, Primus, Tool, Mutoid Man (Rush)- Anthem

Two Minutes To Late Night Cover Rush

During this age of quarantine, there is a lot of free time on musicians hands.  Some are being very productive with writing new records and experimenting with new things. One of the things I’ve noticed is there is a huge flood of covers being done. A lot of them however are pretty meh and bland but, thankfully there is the people at Two Minutes To Late Night to save the day. Most recently, they conjured up a pretty impressive set of players to cover the Rush song “Anthem.” I’m not a big Rush fan but, this was too damn good not to share. Also if you haven’t seen the Rush documentary (I believe it’s still streaming on Netflix) you should check it out. It’s quite good. Anyways, this cover features Danny Carey of Tool on drums, Bill Kelliher of Mastodon on guitar, Les Claypool of Primus on bass, Stephen Brodsky of Cave In/Mutoid Man on guitar, Jordan Olds (aka Gwarsenio Hall) on guitar and Claudio Sanchez of Coheed and Cambria on vocals. What a killer job they did on this. Enjoy!
