Coheed and Cambria continue their career-long Amory Wars story arc with their new album The Afterman: Ascension, the first of a two-part double album, The Afterman. Coheed and Cambria pack Ascension with theatrics and grandiose instrumentation for their sci-fi saga, but while title track "The Afterman" creates a lush, sprawling cosmic landscape, tracks like "Mothers of Men" and "Key Entity Extract III: Vic The Butcher" rip with jagged metal riffs, impending walls of booming drums and frontman Claudio Sanchez's mighty shriek. The adventurous tracks add up for another epic chapter in Coheed and Cambria's tale.

The Afterman: Ascension will be out October 9th. The second volume, The Afterman: Descension, is due in February 2013.
