Coheed And Cambria are a critically-acclaimed / highly-skilled band of technical musicians — whom incorporates various aspects Progressive Rock, Punk Rock, Pop, Metal and Post-Hardcore styles into their unique & coveted sounds. [Think: Rush –meets– Darkness –meets– Dream Theater]

Although an utter nightmare for music execs — whose job is to market the band in a pop-dominated industry, Coheed And Cambria has released commercial songs as well — in efforts to appease & tease the mainstream audience.


All of Coheed and Cambria's albums are concept albums that tell a science fiction storyline called, "The Amory Wars" — a story written by lead singer Claudio Sanchez; which has been transcribed into a series of comic books –as well as a full length novel.

Interestingly enough, the band encountered a series of interesting bumps n' bruises & twists n' turns on their meteoric rise as artists who have made an impact on the college music scene — who perform at sold-out concert tours all over the world, transforming themselves into gold / platinum-selling band.

Claudio Sanchez is the brain & brawn behind this electic band has released 7-seven studio albums, 3-three live albums and countless several compilations, special-edition box-set releases & movie/video game soundtracks.
