The Abnormal Mapping Podcast
The Amory Score is a weekly podcast where your hosts Jackson & Molly take you on a journey through the ridiculous discography of Coheed and Cambria. Going track by track, they're here to explain to you just what the heck the deal is with that incomprehensible sci-fi concept, and have some fun with songs along the way.
So whether you're a fellow fan of this stupidity or are just bemused at the whole ordeal, come on down while we give you The Amory Score...
Hello and welcome to the number one Coheed and Cambria podcast on iTunes! I checked, and shockingly there aren't any others, so it's us or bust, baby.
This week we're talking about the second song, Devil in Jersey City, which means there's a strong content warning on this episode for discussion of rape, sexual assault and violence against women. This song contains some of the worst tendencies of the bands early-era edgelord misogyny, and we talk about it head on.
I think there's good discussion here about the way misogyny can evolve into more 'respectable' forms and the weird cognitive dissonance that can come from revisiting something you loved as a teenager, but if you want to skip this one due to the subject matter, I totally understand!
Welcome friends, one and all, to the launch of The Amory Score, where we begin our journey track by track through the terribly ridiculous and ridiculously terrible story of Coheed and CambrIa's sci fi epic: The Amory Wars. This week, we're listening to Time Consumer, the opening song from 2001's Second Stage Turbine Blade, wherein we are introduced to our heroes as they murder their own children, for reasons explained only by backstory we are never given.
We start as we mean to go on.
Hello everyone! Today we're launching a new podcast: The Amory Score, a journey through the ridiculous music and story of everyone's favourite mid-00s concept band, Coheed and Cambria. If you have no idea who Coheed and Cambria are, then don't worry, we've got a primer episode here to give you the context you need before blasting off into the main thrust of the cast next week.
