Coheed and Cambria Debut New Song “Dark Sentencer”
Coheed and Cambria reaffirm their place as rock’s most convolutedly nerdy band with their new single, “The Dark Sentencer.” The ten-minute-long track doesn’t even really begin until around the three minute mark, and conveys a labyrinthine narrative that I imagine will be expanded in a comic book and endlessly dissected on Reddit but which many of us will never even begin to explore because Jesus holy fuck, who has the time?
The song is pretty good, though, so you can also just enjoy it as a piece of music and not an epic journey into the depths of Claudio Sanchez’s imagination.
You can check out “The Dark Sentencer” below. Below that, you can check out some information about the “larger meaning”/story of the song that the band has released. Presumably, the song will appear on a future C&C album, but there’s been no announcement about that as of yet.
Weaving through the blacked out space toward the freckling of cracked planets, The Gavel moved like a funeral procession. In many ways, it was the end of life for the two prisoners being transported within its unmitigable walls, to the most deplorable and prized of the doomed prisons, known simply as The Dark Sentencer.
