Coheed and Cambria

Add Date: April 13

Artist: Coheed and Cambria

Album: Year of the Black Rainbow

Label: Columbia

Genre: Rock, hard rock, progressive rock

Comments: From the promoter: "Although originally forming as a rock trio in 1995, New York's Coheed and Cambria officially took root in 2001, shedding their former name of Shabutie and embracing a fusion of progressive rock, emocore, and highly conceptual album themes. Now, the band returns with their most powerful record to date, the blistering Year of the Black Rainbow."

I'm completely unqualified to write a review for a Coheed and Cambria record; their music simply isn't my thing. However, I do know that they do what they do very, very well, and they've been consistently putting out good records for the last decade. Year of the Black Rainbow seems to be the latest in that long line of success. The promoter recommends "Guns of Summer," "Far," "The Shattered Symphony" and "Made Out of Nothing (All That I Am)."
