Coheed and Cambria

In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3~ Equal Vision Records
Oct 7, 2003
By Jessica


A phone rings. An orchestral piano introduction – the same piece recorded on The Second Stage Turbine Blade. It is immediately apparent – Coheed and Cambria has returned with their sophomore release, In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3

. Anticipated as the band’s breakthrough release, the album presents the brilliant fusion Co & Ca is known for: indie, punk, whatever you want to call it. Upbeat, catchy guitar riffs with piercing, pleasantly evasive lyrics, the band has maintained unique style. Claudio Sanchez’s vocals are equally as strong as on the previous album, and the lyrics equally ethereal. “Will they size my fit for a puzzle? I wish not to play a part in it / a heart stained in hate, a feeling I fear will play circles / you were my favorite.” (The Crowning)

Joshua Eppard, still heavy on the drums, has a strong presence on In Keeping Secrets. Fast paced and snappy, the percussion is what keeps Travis Stever’s high-energy guitar going. The bass isn’t very strong, so the album isn’t very “bottom heavy.” It is reminiscent of the high volume intensity of a radio alarm clock when it detonates in silence – a pleasant, seemingly caffeinated wake-up. In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3 is the perfect introduction the Coheed and Cambria, and the perfect extension to The Second Stage Turbine Blade. The ideal substitute for overplayed punk, rock or indie, Coheed and Cambria is the soon-to-be-discovered gem of the music scene, and In Keeping Secrets is the album that will stake their ground.

11 Tracks + Studio B-Side
