Concert Spotlight: Coheed & Cambria (Atlanta, Ga April 23, 2010)

Coheed and Cambria walked out on stage. That was all the crowd needing. A deafening roar of cheers, screams, whistles, and enthusiasm exploded from the masses. 4 Generals of war, standing proud, excited, and immaculate with their instruments. An army of people stood before them. Hundreds of people whose lives have been changed by a single band. The words of 4 men who were successfully able to blend the passion and creativity the world had been missing from music for so long. The lights dimmed, and the echo of One screamed through the renovated opera hall. Then, in a split second, the lights exploded and the band began playing The Broken. The crowd raised their hands to the roof, and all hell broke loose. For the next hour or two there was nothing to be remembered but deafening chants, raised fists, blaring choruses, and a seven and a half minute drum solo that only Chris Pennie could muster up on the spot. That's right. The band rocked the auditorium so hard, so loud, that they actually exploded their sound board, and Chris Pennie was told to improvise, and improvise he did. To sum it up, the performance was amazing. Masters of their craft on stage singing their parables to a crowd of people that have given up so much to be a part of their music. Music that has had such a spark, such inspiration, such magnitude in so many lives has given people a new hope. New faith in music. Mortal human beings forever changed from people to something much greatest. We are Children of the Fence, and we are the luckiest fans in the world. I cannot wait to see Coheed again at any venue in my area, because I have never been so jaw dropped and awe-inspired before. Good work, guys. I hope every show is purely as magical as the one I seen.
