Coheed And Cambria

Coheed And Cambria
Played at Graspop Metal Meeting




United States


Coheed & Cambria formed as long ago as 1995 but the New Yorkers didn’t make their GMM debut until 2012. Two years earlier the band around mastermind Claudio Sanchez made quite an impression at the 2010 edition of Rock Werchter. So far, the band has released eight albums and the lyrics on the first seven are part of a single science fiction story line called The Amory Wars. This is also the title of an ongoing series of comic books authored by Claudio Sanchez as well as a full-length novel. In 2015, C&C released ‘The Color of the Sun’, their first non-conceptual album ever, with Sanchez focusing on his personal life instead. Heavy metal, hardcore and (punk) rock have all had an impact on C&C’s music but when your influences include Led Zeppelin, Queen, Iron Maiden, Misfits and Bad Brains that is to be expected. One to look forward to! (#GMM17)
