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.
