Coheed And Cambria / Glassjaw
Venue: Forum, London
NY’s prog metallers get into the party spirit
After a lengthy absence, post-hardcore pioneers GLASSJAW  are back.
In typical style, they stay stuck to the spot while frontman Daryl Palumbo paces up and down the stage screaming until his larynx dissolves in bile. Suffering sound problems from the beginning, the band don’t find their stride until Ape Dos Mil and the baying pitters follow suit.
Shrouded in blue light and dry ice, the stage is set for COHEED AND CAMBRIA  to claim their throne like a prog-metal Targaryen. And like the dragons they possess, the New York heavyweights are breathing fire and making a break for the sky. Claudio Sanchez bounces around the stage like a hairy demon as the band blast through the biggest and ‘poppiest’ records in their impressive arsenal.
