Claudio Sanchez Unleashes "Kill Audio"

Claudio Sanchez, lead singer of Coheed & Cambria just released his second comic book series and this one seems to be getting a lot of good reviews. Kill Audio is a 6 issue series following the adventures of our hero, Claudio.

For those of you not familiar with Coheed & Cambria, all of the group's material is based on The Amory Wars. The story is ridiculously elaborate, taking place in a large solar system named Heaven's Gate. "Coheed" and "Cambria" are the mother and father of Claudio, a savior for the war torn galaxy. Some people have talked about it's similarities to Star Wars, but I found that if you listen to the music and read the comics it works very well. FYI, Coheed & Cambria (the band) are hard at work in the studio making a new album based on a prequel to The Amory Wars, so this could get very confusing. However they have promised to release a series of comics in chronological order to tell the story further.

One character from The Amory Wars is Jesse "The Prize Fighter" Inferno which has lead to the creation of a new band called? The Prize Fighter Inferno! Taking away most of the progressive rock and punk in their other band, this one tends to lean more on electronic beats. All of this is quite meaningless if you either hate Coheed & Cambria or hate comics, but I love both so check out any of the music or art and enjoy the trailer for Kill Audio below, featuring music from The Prize Fighter Inferno. Just so you know, the stories do not have any relation, nor do the intersect so you can pick up a comic from this series without wondering if you missed anything. Lastly, those interested in purchasing the series with variant covers can click here, yes I know that is very geeky.
