Roadrunner Records’ Coheed and Cambria have announced details of their long awaited new album and label debut, The Unheavenly Creatures. The sprawling fifteen-track, self-produced, 78-minute epic finds Coheed and Cambria returning to the conceptual narrative of The Amory Wars.
Coheed and Cambria recently released The Unheavenly Creatures’ 10-minute prog manifesto, “The Dark Sentencer,” which was leaked to fans by frontman Claudio Sanchez along with the opening paragraphs from the album’s aforementioned novella. “‘The Dark Sentencer’ opens with prickly guitars that build into a stadium-sized thump,” noted Rolling Stone while Revolver declared, “the soaring song with its rolling guitar riff could soundtrack the montage to any intergalactic underdog story.” Consequence of Sound hailed “The Dark Sentencer” adding, “Gang vocals and ephemeral harmonies underscore the band’s trademark shredding.”
The band has distinguished themselves as among the most gifted storytellers in rock.
