While other progressive bands might release a concept album or two, Coheed and Cambria have had an entirely conceptual career. Frontman Claudio Sanchez's epic vision expands across the media landscape with comics, novels and music. Coheed and Cambria bring an earnestness born of screamo bands, like At The Drive-In, to the sweeping arrangements and lofty conceptualization of prog-rock. A ticket to a Coheed and Cambria concert opens the door to another world. On their most recent tour across America, the UK and Europe in support of the album, The Afterman: Descension, they seized all the tools available to a modern band. A huge video screen and light show backs up the wailing falsetto of Claudio Sanchez to amazing effect. The Afterman: Descension rounds out a two-album set that began with The Afterman: Ascension, which explored and expanded upon the story of Sirius Amory and the central concept of the Keywork.

Viper Room presents a group of rock and heavy metal rock bands this Monday night.
VITIATE is a melting pot of influences with one goal, make original, honest, in-your-face metal! In a time when most heavy bands are taking music to such an extreme, they’re losing sight of what music is all about, great memorable songs. VITIATE's philosophy is simple, the groove is what moves people. Never sacrificing intensity and always keeping the pulse, VITIATE are all about creating memorable original songs that stay with you. VITIATE has a new take on metal in 2014. With all members coming from an active past collectively having worked with industry heavy weights Century Media, Fontana/Universal, Colin Richardson, Ted Jensen, Logan Madar, Daniel Castleman, Juan Urteaga etc... and non-stop full U.S. touring with acts such as Five Finger Death Punch, Fear Factory, Suicide Silence, Devildriver, Kataklysm etc.. VITIATE is no stranger to captivating huge audiences and working hard professionally on a constant and consistent basis. And the band Nightsword establishes itself as a band to watch out for. Ranging from hard-hitting beats to melodic instrumentals, NightSword appeals to hard-core and old school metalheads as well as fans of lighter fare.
