After the rebellion's wife ex machina victory against Ryan's forces, the supreme tri-mage is taken into custody. Jesse decides that he shall not be executed on the spot, but instead tried, by undefined space laws, so that they can prove once and for all that he is evil, and also not a god.
It's worth the wait, it's all you could ever want: today begins the trial of Wilhelm Ryan. Read More
We return after a break to bring you the story of Chase and Sizer, one of the most uncomfortable stories in The Amory Wars, so uncomfortable that it never really happened. Can their story stand proud with that of Josephine, the woman thrice dead?
Please join us for another ridiculous episode of The Amory Score... Read More
Hey everyone, Jackson here with a quick little update: we've had to push this week's Amory Score to next week. I've been very busy with deadlines at school, Molly's very busy with work, and the only times we were both free to record were in the early hours of the morning, so we thought it better to record a much more awake and well-made episode next week.
I really am sorry about this! I know it's the best decision for the show in the long run but I still feel really awful about this, so to tide you over I've talked a little bit about one of the demo songs we skipped: Elf Tower New Mexico. Released only in an enhanced edition years later, this song dares to ask the question: what would a song sound like if it wasn't good enough to make the cut? Read More
Last time, Claudio sat down on his girlfriend's lawn and started telling his story to a dog. This time, he continues by telling the story of people who he doesn't know and don't know him to the dog. Let's just go with it.
Deep on the storm planet of Donar, Inferno's forces wait for the moment of battle against Wilhelm Ryan's Red Army. Before long, all paths lead to a climactic confrontation on the plains of Silent Earth: 3... Read More
Ten years ago, Coheed and Cambria killed their children and almost destroyed the whole universe. Many thought that was the end of it, but their valiant struggle is continued by their son Claudio and their brother Jesse, and thus begins the tale ten years later, In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3...

The Second Stage Turbine Blade has come to a close, but before we move onto the next album, we're doing a special episode and bringing on M, who likes the show but absolutely does not like the band, to try to see how well they have held onto the events of the book from listening to the podcast alone.
If you've not listened to The Amory Score and want to understand what is happening before we talk about In Keeping Secrets (the best album, thank you), then this is as good a place as any to jump in. But you'll still be lost. We all are. I wonder if we'll ever find ourselves again. Read More
The immediate crisis has ended, and Coheed and Cambria are no more, but there are still matters to be attended to within Heaven's Fence. Mariah's rebellion still fights Ryan's Red Army and Mayo Deftinwolf in the ruins of Paris: Earth, while across the stars, a special boy struggles with his destiny...
Join us for the first album's finale, the end of Second Stage Turbine Blade... Read More
Last time, everyone went to Paris: Earth, Coheed became SkullGreymon, and Wilhelm Ryan started acting like he had already won. But what the fuck did the transformation do? What's happening to Cambria? What is anyone's plan, and how many wives will die? All these questions and more will be answered in this dramatic episode of: The Amory Score. Read More
All roads lead to Paris: Earth in this action packed episode of The Amory Score. After taking a breather last week to check in with Patrick, a boy who was not at all special, this week we speed towards the climax of the album, as the stakes are raised, cliffhangers are reached, and Claudio's high school girlfriend must be protected. Read More
Today, a shorter episode of The Amory Score as we cut away from the ever increasing drama of the Kilgannons, Mayo and their battle for the universe (that no one really understands), and instead focus on the life and times of Patrick McCormick, an unspecial boy, in a special boy world. Read More
Friends, it is Thursday, and you know what that means: It's time for your weekly update onto the goings on within The Amory Wars. Who's winning? Who's losing? What's the deal with all those dead wives?
None of these questions will be answered. There will only be more questions. Read More
It is June 8th and the world is a very stressful place, but that isn't going to stop the latest installment of your favourite Coheed and Cambria podcast: The Amory Score!
When last we left our heroes, they had murdered their children and, following this, were immediately captured by the villains. This time, they're about to realise that they maybe shouldn't have believed the villains when they said "hey, kill your kids for us," and they get a little angry about it. Read More
Friends, welcome back to Episode 3 of The Amory Score, where we take you track by track through the most ridiculous and inscrutable Star Wars rip off ever made, the works of Coheed and Cambria. When last we left our heroes they had murdered three (3) of their children, and they about to ask themselves a question you should never, ever ask in that situation:
"Wait, why the fuck did we kill our kids again?" Read More
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! Read More
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. Read More
