Coheed and Cambria is an American progressive rock band from New York that formed in 1995. Coheed and Cambria’s music incorporates aspects of progressive rock, pop, heavy metal and post-hardcore.
All of Coheed and Cambria’s albums are concept albums that tell a science fiction story titled “The Amory Wars,” which was written by lead singer Claudio Sanchez. The story has been transcribed into a series of comic books, as well as a full length novel. The group has released seven studio albums, three live albums, and several special-edition releases.
Sanchez states repeatedly that he is envious of his father’s era of music, and that the band is influenced heavily by groups including, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Police, Misfits, Queen, and Thin Lizzy. In addition, Sanchez also states that their band is influenced by post-hardcore groups like At the Drive-In, and Iron Maiden.
