The Horror Honeys: Revenge Wednesday Jam - 'Welcome Home'

Revenge Wednesday Jam - 'Welcome Home'

You stormed off to scar the armada
Like Jesus played martyr,
I'll drill through your hands
The stone for the curse you have blamed me
With love and devotion, I'll die as you sleep
But if you could just write me out
To neverless wonder... happy will I become
Be true that this is no option,
So with sin I condemn you
Demon play, demon out!

Coheed and Cambria is pretty much the best prog rock nerd band since Rush. Their concept albums line up with comic books that the band members help write. Lead singer Claudio Sanchez has a voice so operatic it kind of makes you want to die or cry... sometimes both simultaneously. Even the band's name plays into an epic story of love that has worked itself out through their albums and comics since their inception. While I like some of their romantic songs ("Wake Up" featured on the same album is beautiful), revenge song "Welcome Home" from Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness (GODS, I love this band) is my favorite. So get lost in the prog rock epic-ness, kids, and revenge on! ~RH
