Coheed and Cambria Offer Full Stream of New Disc ‘The Afterman: Descension’
Progressive rock quartet Coheed and Cambria will be releasing the second part of their ‘Afterman’ double album on Feb. 5, but fans won’t have to wait until tomorrow to hear the band’s seventh studio album. Coheed & Cambria’s ‘The Afterman: Descension’ is now available for streaming in full at RollingStone.com (click below).
The New York band released the first part of their ‘Afterman’ series, ‘Ascension,’ in October of last year, allowing fans to absorb part of the progressive space journey before hitting them with part two. Based on the ‘Amory Wars’ comic books written by Coheed & Cambria frontman Claudio Sanchez, ‘The Afterman: Descension’ will be the latest part of the story, completing the ‘Afterman’ sequence.
‘The Afterman: Ascension’ received positive reviews by critics after its release, and when listening to the journey’s second half, it’s fair to speculate that the critical praise Coheed & Cambria have captured will continue. Mixing their slow-churning prog with energetic post-hardcore and pop punk sensibilities, the epic nature of C&C’s music doesn’t diminish a bit with this latest release.
