Descension completes the EPIC Story of the AFTERMAN

One Word... INCREDIBLE!!


As a long time Coheed fan, i had much anticipation for this album-having purchased Ascension. The second half of the album is even more phenomenal. Sentry the Defiant is reminiscent of In Keeping Secrets, while the rest of the tracks are evenly dispersed amongst the remainder of the their already epic history. The songs on the bonus addition are great too- they have the same feeling as the old acoustic tracks like the Light and the Glass. I loved this album, and honestly, it was much more than I expected. If you are a real Coheed fan, you will not be disappointed. GRAVITY'S UNION IS EPIC.

But this album won't dissapoint. So far my favorite track is key entity extraction v. The album is heavy but has its lighter moments (a la away we go and the last song). The vocals are interesting; I doubt any other human could sound like that. Give it a listen if you haven't yet!
