Coheed and Cambria image provided by Last.fm Biography from Last.fm

Coheed and Cambria is an American rock band from Nyack, New York. Formed in 2001, the group incorporates aspects of progressive rock, punk rock, metal and post-hardcore.
Coheed and Cambria's albums have conceptual themes that reveal 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. The band's most recent release 'The Color Before The Sun' is the first album not associated with 'The Amory Wars' Story line. Read more on Last.fm

Coheed and Cambria’s star had never been higher. Claudio Sanchez and his bandmates stood amongst the most celebrated progressive rock acts of the past decade. Not the departure of sticksmith Chris Pennie, not even their ex-bassist’s drug store robbery could drag them down. Then Mark Wahlberg announced he’d be filming a live action version of The Amory Wars, Sanchez’s comic book and novelized universe behind the band, for the big screen. On the cusp of breaking into wider consciousness, it was the perfect time for Coheed and Cambria to release arguably their most challenging album to date.

In a pair of shove-crazy years, it was a zenith of surreality. No, not when former bassist Michael Todd left in sub-Tap circumstances, whose exit was followed in short order by that of Dillinger Escape Plan founder, Chris Pennie. This July, at San Diego Comiccon, Mark Wahlberg announced he’d picked up Coheed and Cambria frontman Claudio Sanchez’s conceptual opus, The Amory Wars, for a live action feature. We all like to see something behind the eyes of bands we put our faith into. A blockbuster movie isn’t what first springs to mind.

PROTOLOGY with James Monteith of TesseracT: #1 – Mindful (Non) Self Indulgence

March 1st, 2011

We’re big fans of UK prog metallers, TesseracT. One night, we were out with their guitarist, James Monteith, dousing our insides with whiskey and we thought he had as much crap to say as we do so we asked him if he’d write a column. After we reminded him the next morning afternoon, he agreed again. Here it is. He’s kicking off with explanations, complaints and shit jokes. Class.

Progtology with James Monetieth Thrash Hits

Hello, I’m James and I play guitar in prog metal – or as we’re more commonly called – “djent” band Tesseract.

First off, let’s get the djent thing out of the way, which I guess I must address, given the column name. There’s a lot of division in our community of bands and critics about this word, whether it’s: truely representative of the overall sound; a gimmick, or just plain stupid.
