Coheed and Cambria have consistently put out quality material since their inception. It’s not a big shocker that “Year of the Black Rainbow” is another good album. The last piece of Claudio Sanchez’s gigantic rock chronicle comes to a close with a magnificent piece of music. There’s a lot of metal here for fans of the band but more interesting than that is the diversity in the music. Some keys are added in for drama at key points of the album, and the dramatic is played out superbly in the music. The shifts in the album from track to track and even in certain songs are equally captivating. Whether you’ve been into Sanchez’s concept work or not, you can respect the ambition and “Year of the Black Rainbow” is a record that modern metal fans will love.
