so ive been listening to this band for a while now. they are kinda hitting the popular music radar and its a good thing. wonderful musicians, incredable songwriting, and just overall good band.
anyway, come to find out, theres a story to their music. the name of the band (coheed and cambria) is the names of two parents with 4 kids (the singer of the band being one of them). the bands music chronicles the story of the parents and kids (who all eventually die, except the lead singers character, in some galatic war that gets started cuz the dad gets turned into some monster).
the keen thing is, the whole story hasnt been told yet. its still being written and parts are being released as CD's, but out of order. part two and three have been released, with parts four and one to be released later on, followed by a comic book/graphic novel.
why do you care? just thought you might like it. its pretty HOL esque right now, in that noone really has much of a clue whats going on, they just have the shell of the story that they've been able to puzzle out through clues in the songs, and what the band has publicly released.
check it out if you feel the urge, its pretty damn good music either way.
