It was just Wednesday that I told you about the new Coheed And Cambria album streaming online and I’m back again with some more Coheed news. As you all know, I was very pleased with the band’s release back in October: The Afterman: Ascension and I am quite happy with part two of this double album, Descension which came out this past Tuesday. The good people in Coheed And Cambria have given us something else this week that is also pretty rad. Continue reading »
You should all know by now that I love Coheed And Cambria. I placed the band in the number one spot on my Best of 2012 list for a reason, after all. The Afterman: Ascension was such a strong album that it blew my mind and worked it’s way to my favorite album of the year in less than two months. It was a constant listen to for me and it still is.
If any of you are like me, you have been anticipating Coheed And Cambria‘s next installation The Afterman: Descension. Well, the album was released yesterday and… Continue reading »

An’ lemme jus’ say: Fuck December 21st in it’s ass. Ain’t no ‘pocalypse, mutha’ fuckas.
Man, there were way to many good albums released this year. I listened to as many as I could but there were some that I just couldn’t get to. There are also some that I listened to, just not enough for them to make my final list. I can’t let this slide, however and I want to give a shout out to new releases by Marty Friedman, The Mars Volta, Birds In Row, Code Orange Kids, Downfall Of Gaia and Krallice. I really wish I could have settled down to check these albums out in full, but I just couldn’t get down to do it.
Before we get to my actual list I would like to thank each and every one of you readers. Without you, I honestly probably would have given this up a long time ago. Sure, on this site I give my opinion on music, but it is really you guys/gals that count. I don’t know how I could repay you all for visiting American Aftermath these past two years. You have really made it worth while. Even the haters who talked shit, I appreciate you fucks also.
I have swooned over Coheed And Cambria‘s latest album The Afterman: Ascension and I am beyond stoked for the release of it’s companion The Afterman: Descension in February. I have always been a huge fan of Coheed And Cambria and The Afterman: Ascension is my favorite album released by the band thus far. With that said, it seems Descension is going to be pretty amazing as well. The band has released a lyric video for the track “The Hard Sell,” which you can see below. I love the riffing and of course, Claudio’s vocals are top-notch. Can’t fucking wait. Stream “The Hard Sell” below and let us know what you think. Continue reading »
Coheed And Cambria‘s new album The Afterman: Ascension has been out for a bit now and it’s a fantastic listen all around. I mean, it’s really good. The heavy parts are heavier than ever, the melodic parts are beautifully orchestrated and the story-telling is spectacular. Coheed released a music video for “Domino The Destitute” not too long ago and now they have released the video for the title track of their new album, “The Afterman.”
The video is very well shot and the track is spectacular. It wasn’t as visually stimulating as “Domino The Destitute,” but it’s still really cool. Check out the video and press release after the jump. The Afterman: Ascension is available now and The Afterman: Descension is to be released on February 5th. Continue reading »
Yo, what’s good, kiddos? You know, this time of year is a big time to catch up on releases to prepare for year-end lists and something that I have come to fucking adore is the music app Spotify. I love this thing. Not only does it stream full albums, but it’s fucking free. So yeah, I’ve been Spotifying like crazy all week and it has really helped me out with working on my list. Here are a few albums that I have been listening to that may or may not end up on my list. If you’re into ‘em, check ‘em out. Also, don’t forget to tell us your favorite release of 2012. Enjoy.

One of the most highly anticipated tours would be the upcoming Coheed and Cambria headlining tour with Between the Buried and Me and Russian Circles. After the tour was rumored earlier this year I became extremely excited. Possibly too excited. Coheed and Cambria finally took to their Facebook to announce the full touring schedule. The tour will be in support of the band’s upcoming record The Afterman: Descension, which will be released on February 5th. Check out the dates below!!!

In addition to that, Coheed and Cambria have been teasing an announcement to be revealed on November 5th. Could it be about the tour? Who knows? All I know is if they do not come to Texas I will kill myself. I will. Just watch.
According to The PRP, a rumor is going around that Between the Buried and Me, Coheed and Cambria and Russian Circles will be touring together in early 2013. So far, a February 15th show at the Salt Air in Magna, Utah has slipped out. I like all of these bands and I hope they come to Texas so my inner fanboy can have a mind blowing eargasm. To get everyone pumped up for this I have posted a song from each band below.

The popular progressive rock group Coheed and Cambria continue their expansive Armory Wars story on their new record, The Afterman: Ascension. The record is part of a two part conceptual piece with the next installment, The Afterman: Descension, to be released February of next year. Rolling Stone is currently streaming the album in full for all of you prog nerds to enjoy! Check it out if you wish.
I have spoken of my love for Coheed And Cambria before and it’s safe to say that I am very excited for the bands forthcoming albums The Afterman: Ascention and The Aftermath: Descension. In anticipation for these albums, Coheed And Cambria have released a new video and it is amazing. Seriously, this track rocks my shit unto the core. As for the video, which you can see below, I agree 100% with Vince at MetalSucks. This is a beautifully shot video. It’s… Well, it’s great. Tell us your thoughts on the video in the comments section. Ascension and Descension will be released on October 9th and February 2013, respectively.
I honestly don’t know anything about prog-rockers 3 other than they are on Metal Blade Records and they played on MetalSuck’s Metal Suckfest this year. I have never even listened to the band before writing this post, but it’s really not too bad. It’s not something that I could see myself listening to a shit ton, but it’s not bad. I can definitely see this band on tour with a band that I do love, Coheed And Cambria, which is what is going to happen next month. This tour is going to hit New York, Vermont, Connecticut, New Jersey, Massachusetts and a stop in Ontario, Canada starting on September 13th. You can see the full dates after the jump. Are you hitting up any of these dates? Continue reading »
I have been a fan of Coheed and Cambria for a long time now and I almost lost my shit today when I learned that these sci-fi’d out, comic-inspired rockers were planning to release a new double album. That’s right, a double album! l am every excited to see what Coheed and Cambria have in mind for their sixth and seventh releases. You can see the trailer for The Afterman at the top of this post. Yeeeeah. Vol. 1 is slotted for release in October with Vol. 2 following in February.
As most of you remember, several years ago drummer Chris Pennie broke our hearts by quitting The Dillinger Escape Plan and joining Coheed. Well, last month Chris made steps towards us finally forgiving him by quitting Coheed And Cambria. After a four-year stint, the drummer sites ‘creative differences’ as the prime reason for his departure.
Pennie will be primarily focusing on his other musical endeavors. His now main band Return To Earth are currently working on their third album.
“I am very thankful for the times I shared the stage with the guys in Coheed and especially want to thank the amazing, supportive fans that I’ve met while on tour,” said Pennie. “There are a lot of exciting projects on the horizon in addition to Return To Earth and Fight Mannequins that I feel require 100 percent of my commitment and attention. I feel that this is the right time to make that happen.”

Two weeks after his arrest, Coheed bassist Michael Todd was set free on a $25,000 bail from the Dartmouth House of Corrections at midnight. It is unknown who posted bail for him. If you recall, Todd was arrested after robbing a Walgreens in Attleboro, Massachusetts.
I guess the replacement bassist sucked so bad that they just had to get Todd back as soon as they could. That’s my theory.
