With seven concept albums that employ big riffs and frontman Claudio Sanchez’s high register wail to chronicle a sci-fi epic adapted to comic book as The Amory Wars, Coheed is any emo geek’s wet dream. Incorporating elements of Iron Maiden-type metal, Bad Brains-style punk, and Pink Floyd psychedelia, their songs, if a little heavy-handed, scramble today’s standard pop-punk formula and inject new life into what some see as a stale genre.
