Coheed and Cambria, 'The Afterman: Descension (Vol. 2)' – Album Premiere

Back in October, Coheed and Cambria offered up the latest installment of their career-spanning Amory Wars saga with Ascension, the first part of their double album The Afterman. Now you can take an exclusive first listen to disc two, Descension, which kicks off with the slow-burning "Prelethal." Throughout the rest of the record, frontman Claudio Sanchez's jagged howl leads Coheed through thunderous, theatrical cuts like "The Hard Sell" and "Gravity's Union." On the infectious "Away We Go," the band adopts a streamlined classic rock sound, while powerful closer "2's My Favorite 1" bursts with longing and pop-punk glory. The Afterman: Descension will be released February 5th on Everything Evil/Hundred Handed Inc.
