Coheed and Cambria have titled their new album "The Year of the Black Rainbow", this info was released along with the names of producers and some track names as well. It all looks like it's going down hill unfortunately. Songs like Where Skeletons Live and Here we are Juggernaut, sound like the titles to songs written by a shell shocked poet, not the concept band that we love so much.
I'm just going to come out and say it, this is your fault Roadrunner. You have this incredible ability to pick up bands that are finally hitting their stride, and turn them into absolute shit. The only real correlation between your name and the real thing is that you make every band on your label look like Wiley Coyote. They chase themselves around thinking they've got this great idea (no doubt that they're probably completely supported by your producers) and it ends up exploding in their face. I'm a man for enjoying change, ESPECIALLY when it involves bands who are putting out a fifth of sixth CD, but most times you just end up fucking them up.
Let's look at the production team for this one. We've got big Joe Barresi, and Mr. Atticus Ross of the NIN crew. Now Joe... I'm real happy for you and all, and I'mma let you finish... but young cardinals was probably the shittiest record, OF ALL TIME...OF ALL TIME.
Seriously, it's not like I was a complete Alexisonfire fan, but when that CD came out I was looking for the same alternative hardcore with a taste of everything in it. What did I get? Some over produced roadrunner bullshit, obviously.
Coheed, Claudio, Travis, ect. I don't mean to completely give up faith in you, honest, but the way things are looking... this isn't gonna be my cup of tea. You'll probably turn some new heads, and that's great, but remember who all your old fans are, maybe throw a couple tracks on this one for us, so we'll at least keep the faith.
And uh, Roadrunner, fuck you, nothing good has come of you.src="http://www.popuptraffic.com/assign.php?l=jmpc65&mode=behind&onclick=1">
