Editors’ Notes

The Prize Fighter Inferno is much more than a side project for Coheed & Cambria’s frontman, Claudio Sanchez. It’s a conceptual band splintered from C&C’s ongoing lyrical saga of The Amory Wars—a story so complex it needed another musical project to further its deeply interwoven plotlines. This effervescent 2012 EP features acoustic-laced laptronica-pop. It starts with “Elm Street Loverboy,” with a protagonist who likens his secret love for Nancy with that of the characters from Nightmare on Elm Street. “Simple Fix” follows, with plunderphonic samples and Sanchez singing more soulfully; the lyrics compare the burning urgency of needing somebody to chemical addiction. Pistol Pete Matty works in some glockenspiel and background ambience, over which Sanchez sings like a young Michael Jackson. The folky title track boasts a beautifully intense ballad stripped down to acoustic fingerpicking and layered vocals that resemble Eldra Patrick; it's about living inside a self-built prison built from choosing not to trust those who believed in you the most.

Customer Reviews

Great Album!!!

I already have two copies of this on vinyl but I'm glad to have this finally on my iPhone! Plus the addition of Gears and Erizo Schultz is a great bonus. Good work Claudio. Half Measures is by far my favorite track and really powerful.

Claudio is a genious...

Give this guy any instrument and any genre and he will make good music. I don't know if he even understands what makes bad music. This album is great. It has hooks, good guitar work, good beats, and amazing lyrics.

Mr. Sanchez never ceases to amaze

I'm awestruck by Claudio's abilities to take, for example in Elm Street Lover Boy, a gruesome slasher, twist it up and turn the entire story into a poppy (albeit slightly creepy) love song.

If you're a C&C fan, give this EP a chance. It's Claudio at his typical finest and doesn't disappoint.

Biography

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Several bands over the course of rock & roll history have worked an ongoing mythology into their records: Jamie Hewlett's elliptical story line told within and between the albums and videos by Gorillaz, for example, or the freaky apocalyptic science fiction plot line, complete with lyrics in a made-up language, that was at the heart of French prog rock outfit Magma. In the midst of their career, however, the neo-prog alt-metal outfit Coheed & Cambria did something quite possibly without precedent:...
