Coheed and Cambria

Stereotypes surround Coheed and Cambria--from the chain of concept records (that include a, gulp, prequel), their dooming description as a “progressive metal hybrid” or the stories of the friction between members that have them quitting and rejoining the band like it’s a soap opera. But see them live and all that falls aside. The collective energy harnessed when these guys take the stage, full of speed, aggression and manic hair whipping will make you, as it did to me as I stumbled upon them at a festival, stop in your tracks, and plant in to be blown away.
