One of my favorite bands since I was in eighth grade has been Coheed & Cambria a four piece from Nyack, New York. Now Coheed is a little different from most bands. Most bands when they decide to do a concept, they only do about one album. Coheed took the conceptual way of thinking a step further and has released five albums that align with singer/guitarist Claudio Sanchez’s concept of the Amory Wars. The Amory Wars saga consists of five albums and a comic book that is released by Evil Ink Comics.
The reason I bring this up is because on Valentine’s Day the band released a video for a new song entitled ‘Sentry the Defiant’. The song is a solo performance from singer/Guitarist Claudio Sanchez and just this version of the song to me is better than anything off of their previous release ‘Year of The Black Rainbow’ (Columbia).
I am looking forward to a new Coheed release in 2012. Until then this track should tide me over!
