Our Top 10 Coheed and Cambria songs list takes a look at one of the most exciting Progressive rock bands of the 21st Century. The band was first formed in Nyack, New York, in 1995. The band released their first album entitled The Second Stage Turbine Blade in 2002. The following year the band released their sophomore album entitled In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: in 2003. Good Apollo, I’m Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness, was released in 2005. The band continued with the albums Good Apollo, I’m Burning Star IV, Volume Two: No World for Tomorrow in 2007, Year of the Black Rainbow in 2010, The Afterman: Ascension in 2012, The Afterman: Descension in 2013, and their most recent studio album The Color Before the Sun in 2015.

The band Coheed and Cambria feature an incredible lineup of musicians. The band’s current lineup consists of Claudio Sanchez, Travis Stever, Josh Eppard, and Zach Cooper.

Our top 10 Coheed and Cambria songs list is an attempt to define some of the band’s most essential songs based on popularity, substance, and variety. It’s just a subjective list meant to start as a starting point for music fans that may have never heard of the band. Fans of bands like Yes, Emerson Lake & Palmer, Genesis, Pink Floyd, and pretty much every other Progressive rock band will love Coheed and Cambria. However, their sound is probably closer to later day progressive rock bands like Dream Theater which really put a much heavier sound into the genre of progressive rock.l

# 10 – Gravity’s Union

We open up our Top 10 Coheed and Cambria songs list with a great in-your-face heavy track called Gravity’s Union. The song Gravity’s Union appeared on The Afterman: Descension album. The great CD was released in 2012. The album The Afterman: Descension reached the number 3 position on the Billboard Top Rock Albums charts in 2012. The album also broke the top 10 on the United States. Billboard Top 200 albums charts that encompass all styles of music. Not bad for Progressive Rock in the year 2012.

# 9 – A Favor House Atlantic

The great track A Favor House Atlantic is easily one of the most popular Coheed and Cambria songs in the band’s catalog. The song was released on the In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3 album which was the band’s second CD release. The album was issued in 2003. The song “A Favor House Atlantic,” was released as the first single from the album.

# 8 – Deranged

The song “Deranged,” was released on the soundtrack to the video game Batman: Arkham City. The great rhythm guitar lick at the song’s beginning juxtaposed against the impeccable vocal of Claudio Sanchez sets the tone for a dark moody recording that stands as one of their best.

# 7 – The Willing Well IV: The Final Cut

One of our favorite Coheed and Cambria songs is the long titled track “The Willing Well IV: The Final Cut.” The song was released on an album with an ever longer title called Good Apollo, I’m Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness. The album was released on September 20, 2005. More on this album later.

# 6 – Mother Superior

The Coheed and Cambria album Good Apollo, I’m Burning Star IV, Volume Two: No World for Tomorrow was released in October of 20017. The song Mother Superior appeared as the album’s sixth track.

# 5 – The Suffering

Once again we return to the album Good Apollo, I’m Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness. The track The Suffering appeared as the ninth track in this fabulous progressive rock album.

# 4 – Wake Up

Not every top-ranked song has to be intensely heavy. All great rock bands know how to deliver tender ballads with incredible substance. Think Led Zeppelin’s Thank You or Pink Floyd’s Wish You Were Here. Wake Up is the great Coheed and Cambria ballad. We need songs like this in mad progressive rock, it gives us a chance to catch our breath and kiss our honey before we fling them back to the ground in sheer joy and insanity,

# 3 – The Crowning

“The Crowning,” was released on the stunning In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth:3 album. The song “The Crowning,” appeared as the fifth track on the album. Listen to the sound of those heavy guitars that open up this track. The album featured Claudio Sanchez on lead vocals, guitars, and keys, Travis Stever on guitars, Michael Todd on bass, and Josh Eppard on drums. Additional keyboard work was performed by Danny Louis

# 2 – Welcome Home

It was a tough choice between “Welcome Home,” and “In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth:3,” so don’t kill us if we didn’t choose this fan-favorite at number one. We get it, this one is phenomenal, no argument there. We just wish more people knew about this band outside of their loyal fans and all the prog heads.

# 1- In Keeping Secrets Of Silent Earth: 3

When the song’s opening bass line is shattered by the sound of the snare and the guitars start screaming and howling with utter sheer power, the pinnacle of progressive rock bliss has been achieved. It’s tough to pick a number one song from the great band Coheed and Cambria but this one is has always been our personal favorite.
