Coheed and Cambria is a prog rock band from New York, not a kind of cigar. Their concept albums tell a science fiction story taken directly from ''The Amory Wars'' comics, written by Claudio Sanchez (the lead singer).

Each studio album (bar ''The Color Before The Sun'') corresponds to a chapter in the comics, and they were released in more or less the same order.

Added DiffLines:

** "The Velourium Camper III: Al The Killer" for Al and "Key Entity Extraction III: Vic the Butcher" for Vic also count.

Added DiffLines:

* RevengeBallad: ''No World For Tomorrow'' is filled with these. In particular: "Gravemakers and Gunslingers", "Justice in Murder", and "The End Complete".

Added DiffLines:

** WordSaladTitle: Although they make more sense if you're familiar with the concept of the band, they're still pretty word salad-y.

Added DiffLines:

* LoudnessWar: Pretty much everything they did clips badly, except some of the acoustic stuff.

Added DiffLines:

* EpicRocking: Roughly 80% of their material. It's difficult to say what the longest song is, and we're not exaggerating here - it literally depends on how you define "song". "The Willing Well" is 29:44 long, but it's divided into four tracks and includes the hidden track "Bron Yr"; the latter of these only runs for 1:21, which would bump the whole thing down to 28:12 once you cut out the intervening silence. Then there's "Key Entity Extraction", which runs for 29:13, but not only is that divided into five non-consecutive tracks, but the fifth of those is literally on a different disc from the first four. "The End Complete" is also noteworthy at 24:26, divided into five tracks; "The Camper Velourium" is 15:00 and divided into three. The longest song not divided into multiple tracks is probably "21:13", which runs for 9:47, with "The Light & the Glass" not far behind at 9:39. (Various releases of ''The Second Stage Turbine Blade'' look like they might have a longer example, but that's due to the hidden track "IRO-Bot", which takes up 6:11 of running time on its own, not counting the silence before it.)

* OffingTheOffspring: Coheed and Cambria do this early on by poisoning their two youngest children, beating their injured older daughter to death with a hammer, but never get a chance to kill their other son...because they realize that [[spoiler: [[MindScrew their children weren't infected with a disease that would kill the Keywork]], [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone and General Detinwulf deceived them into murdering their children for no reason]].]]

** ''The Unheavenly Creatures'' brings back the prog metal/prog rock sound and the concept, continuing both sonically and lyrically from where the band left off before ''TCBTS''.

Added DiffLines:

** ''The Color Before the Sun'' takes a complete detour from their previous outings and delves more into the alt rock and pop rock genres. It also ditches the concept the band had been running with in favor of singular songs.
