Even if you don't know the meaning behind this name, doesn't it just sound really cool? It seems to roll right off the tongue, despite being a full six syllables. The flow is impressive, and the abbreviated form of the name (Coheed) lends itself brilliantly to being chanted at a concert.
Coheed and Cambria is a concept band, meaning they are founded on a central storyline, and each album is an entry in the saga. It'd be foolish to even try to sum up the epic tale of Coheed and Cambria in a paragraph, so I won't.
I will tell you that Coheed and Cambria Kilgannon are seminal figures in a collection of planets called Heaven's Fence, which is held together by the Keywork and boasts a cast of characters that includes Humans, Mages, Prises, and IRO-Bots. If you're interested in making your brain hurt, I'd encourage you to check out the full story for yourself.
Musically, Coheed and Cambria can be described primarily as progressive rock, but their music has obvious flavors of everything from emo to heavy metal. Folks in Baltimore, MD, are fortunate enough to welcome the band tonight to the Rams Head Live!
