Coheed & Cambria In-depth Biography

New York's Coheed & Cambria} officially began in 2001, although the band originally formed as a trio called Shabutie in 1995. After performing a poppy metal}/indie rock} sound for many years, they decided to shift gears and, in the process, changed their name. Their first conceptual album, 2002's The Second Stage Turbine Blade}, was picked up by Equal Vision Records} and features a guest appearance by Bad Brains} guitarist Dr. Know}. The progressive rock} band -- vocalist/guitarist Claudio Sanchez}, guitarist Travis Stever}, bassist Michael Todd}, and drummer Joshua Eppard} -- toured extensively for over a year in support of the album, which was the second part (though the first album) of a five-part saga about the doomed marriage of two characters, {%Coheed} and {%Cambria}, who "are convinced they must sacrifice their children in order to save the world from being infected by a virus that is embedded in their genes." Sanchez} also wrote and released a detailed graphic novel series to further explain the plot.

In fall 2003, the band issued In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3}. The vibrant sophomore effort (part three of the five-part saga) was recorded in Japan in between tours with the Used}, and helped break the guys out on a larger scale with the singles "A Favor House Atlantic"} and "Blood Red Summer"} doing respectably well on outlets like MTV}. Coheed & Cambria} went on to play shows in North America with artists such as Thursday}, Thrice}, AFI}, and Rainer Maria}. Their first appearance on the tenth annual Warped Tour} in summer 2004 and their first headlining European tour coincided the success of the "A Favor House Atlantic"} single.

Coheed & Cambria}'s third album, Good Apollo I'm Burning Star IV, Vol. 1: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness} -- their first for Columbia} -- followed in fall 2005; the album (part four) was the first of a two-part conclusion to the band's running sci-fi story line (with the fifth album intended to be the first part). It hit number seven on Billboard}'s Top 200, partially due to the success of "The Suffering"} and "Welcome Home."} On Halloween 2006, Equal Vision} released the debut from Sanchez}'s indie electronic} solo project, the Prize Fighter Inferno}, entitled My Brother's Blood Machine}. Continuing in the tradition of his primary group, the album centers around three families in a story that pre-dates the {%Coheed}/{%Cambria} saga and is narrated by {%Inferno} (aka {%Jesse}, {%Coheed}'s brother). ~ Bradley Torreano, All Music Guide
