Coheed and Cambria
“Good Apollo I’m Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness”
Prog rock? Check. Metal? Check. Complicated story arc?
Double Triple Quadruple check! I will admit it, I do not follow the story (or comics) as much as true hardcore Coheed fans do, but my appreciation of their music is real. Claudio paints vivid images of war and craziness with his lyrics, but the band produces a sonic landscape that dwarfs even the best of Claudio’s themes – at no disrespect for Claudio’s way with words. Coheed and Cambria just may be the modern Pink Floyd.
