Fresh Coheed and Cambria Tune

2018-05-31 by Rowan5215 STAFF | 80 Comments
After a few weeks of teasing via social media, including cryptic passages of epic-sounding narration and a YouTube teaser warning you to "Call Your Mother", American nerd-proggers Coheed and Cambria have finally dropped a new track. "The Dark Sentencer" was quietly released as an unlisted video on the band's YouTube channel after being debuted live earlier the same day. Standing as the longest single track the band has released (not counting long periods of silence with hidden tracks), "The Dark Sentencer" is a return to the wild sci-fi prog of the band's Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV albums, and appears to be a direct sequel to the world-ending events of No World For Tomorrow for the story obsessives out there. No word on the upcoming album's name or release date has yet surfaced.

EDIT: The official release seems to split the song into two, the short ominous narration and the full single (still clocking in well over seven minutes).

"Prologue" can be found at www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4KwSuJfCjg

Unfortunately nothing has changed here for me personally. That goofy spoken intro thing to The Dark Sentencer was the corniest shit ever.

"somewhere between pretty good and fairly epic" - apt

I'll be pretty happy if they release new material in weeks rather than months. I also don't want any bs lead in singles, just release the album so I can absorb it all at once.

I agree that the "hey" element is unneeded. I hate any type of gang or chant vocals in general though. This song is pretty awesome outside of that. I never really got into these guys but this makes me think I should go back and try some of their older shit.

Either check their first album or Good Apollo 1 if you want to give them a chance.

Interesting that this is a sequel to GA2, I thought they wrapped the story up nicely with that album.

Regardless, song rocks and is a welcome return to their epic proggy sound.

"I thought they wrapped the story up nicely with that album."

the story for GA2 hasn't been explained through any medium i thought? but yeah it does sonically kinda suggest the end.

Voltimand

The full details of GA2 were never spelled out but yeah the general story is apparent music/lyrically and via album art.

Also, I'm assuming the album itself is called 'The Dark Sentencer' based on the two tracks uploaded to Youtube (Prologue, The Dark Sentencer)?

Not too much a fan of the basic percussion and hey's, feels sort of like a drawn-out Muse song at times. But otherwise I enjoy the creativity. We'll see what the full album brings.

it's really reaaaaally not hard to parse out what happens at the end of GA2 if you read the lyrics.

Well, the story of the Amory wars is wrapped up. Claudio kills Willhelm and destroys the Keywork. But this story seems like Mad Max in space; what happens to all the people after in the chaotic aftermath of the apocalypse.
