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.

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
