Here's a wild tidbit on Coheed and Cambria: the band's eighth studio album, The Color Before the Sun, is its first that's not a concept album. Whether the previous seven-album run of its "Amory Wars" storyline was enticing or tedious for listeners is debatable, but what's not is the talent and vision of lead singer/shredder Claudio Sanchez.

Seeing this guy and his company perform should be a treat.
