Coheed and Cambria

New Release: Coheed and Cambria- Comatose

Over the last couple of years one band that I’ve really gotten into is Coheed and Cambria. When they first arrived on the scene I kinda wrote them off for whatever dumb reason I had at the time. But, like anything worth a damn, sometimes it takes time to really find the beauty in something, just like Coheed and Cambria. Since then, I’ve been enthralled by their albums, songs, concepts and live shows. And now we are starting to get closer to a new Coheed album and that’s quite exciting. Their new album Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind will be available June 24th. So far we’ve gotten a couple singles “Shoulders” and “The Liars Club,” and now here comes “Comatose.” This one is a catchy fun one that I’m sure when played live will be huge with that chorus!

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.

Cover Song: Coheed And Cambria (Iron Maiden)- The Trooper

Kerrang Magazine in the mid 00’s did a special Iron Maiden exclusive edition. This also saw the magazine ask a bunch of bands to perform certain Maiden songs for a compilation CD. Coheed And Cambria was asked and they picked “The Trooper.” The band has long been fans of Iron Maiden. Their cover is pretty rockin. I did get to see them perform “The Trooper” many years ago at a show and I can tell you it was badass. Iron Maiden are even fans of the band and had them open for them on a more recent tour. Check out this rad cover!

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!
