COHEED AND CAMBRIA: "The Afterman: Descension"

Rating: RRR
Label: Hundred Handed/Everything Evil
Review by Martien Koolen
"The Afterman: Descension" is Coheed and Cambria's sixth album and to me this one is slightly disappointing as especially the second half of the album is too dull and predictable to really enjoy this album. The New Yorkers start off this album with Pretelethal and the Sentry The Defiant, which are rather pleasant metal tracks to start an album with. Songs like Number City or Gravity's Union are also up to the standard of former good CAC songs. However the two ballads Iron Fist and Away We Go are really mediocre rock/popsongs, that are actually unworthy of this band.
Claudio Sanchez's voice is still ok but his growling and howling in The Hard Sell is completey redundant to me. This album will not gain any new fans I am afraid and maybe it will not even keep the old fans happy, but if they make a new album filled with songs like Number City then we have something to look forward to..
