Ep. #321 featuring Coheed & Cambria

Coheed and CambriaPerhaps Coheed & Cambria‘s best ties to the prog world come from their thematic set up as a band. From the start, until very recently, every bit of music the band has released has fallen within the same story. That changes with the new album, The Color Before the Sun. The band has finally separated from The Amory Wars saga, whose stories and associated comic books are as much of the band as their music. The band’s previous two efforts were both prequels, and so it could easily be argued that this attempt to get away was long overdue. Musically the album is no huge departure from their core sound, but the freedom granted by this album led to an album that seemed as loose as their first effort, and if nothing else had to be quite refreshing for the band. You can pick up the album here.

In the news front, I mentioned that Ghost will be appearing on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert on October 30th, and recommend you check their performance out! Vanden Plas has released a trailer for their forthcoming album, and you can view that  below.

Another video that requires your attention is Rush‘s latest offering from the upcoming R40 live set, Jacob’s Ladder.

We also had a tons of bands and new albums making their debut on the program on this episode. One was Electro Shock Therapy from Barracuda Triangle, and you can grab that album here. Next is New World, the new offering from IO Earth, found here. Gazpacho has one coming out soon called Molok, here. Next we have a new solo album from Nad Sylvan, Courting the Window, found here. On a heavier note we have To the Unknown from Sailing to Nowhere, which can be purchased here, and Trivium with Silence in the Snow here. And finally, we have new stuff from Subsignal, who are releasing The Beacons of Somewhere Sometime, which can be bought here. You can also view a new video below.
