The Afterman: Ascension is the sixth full-length studio album from the unique American band Coheed And Cambria.

If you have never heard the band before, they mix Progressive Rock tendencies such as long conceptual tracks, multiple time signatures, recurring themes, occasional use of keys and electronics etc with occasional heavy sections of heavily distorted low pitched guitars and double-kicks, although the band never go too far with either and mainly tend to exist around a core sound of cheerful melodic alternative rock (that's just a bit more varied and expressive than usual). As such, the band can cultivate a broad audience from Metal fans to Emo fans to Prog fans, and are especially suited to fans of all three.

They also have an incredibly expressive and diverse signer who is most famous for his high-pitched slightly feminine vocals but also has an unbelievably large range of tones and styles and can convey emotion vocally better than almost any of his peers. He is able to display a character's conviction, sadness or pain really effectively which makes for seriously interesting listening.

Like their two Good Apollo albums (which were the band's third and fourth studio albums), The Afterman is a set of two related albums consisting of this 2012 album, Ascension, and 2013's upcoming Descension album, although that being said The Afterman is more truly a double album than the two Apollos were since both parts were written and recorded simultaneously this time.

Like all double albums this inevitably raises the question of whether the band should have just taken the best tracks and made one very good album, and I guess we'll have to wait until 2013 to really find out.

Musically, this particular album covers a few different angles.

As a Coheed and Cambria fan since the original "Shabutie" days - the prequel to what would become the 4-man progressive rock tour de force - I had great expectations for Coheed's latest effort "The Afterman: Ascension".

The announcement of the album caused excitement as well as concern with the proclamation that this would be part one of a double album; the second part to be aptly titled "The Afterman: Descension" which is set to be released in four months.

The first three Coheed releases were spectacular but I personally felt that the albums "No World for Tomorrow" and "Year of the Black Rainbow" were both filled with half brilliant/half dull tracks.

It is the first Coheed and Cambria album featuring Zach Cooper on bass - after former bassist Mic Todd was charged for armed robbery, and has since confirmed that he is battling testicular cancer. This is the first Coheed release to feature Josh Eppard on drums since 2005.

With the first single "Key Entity Extraction I: Domino the Destitute" maintaining an almost Queen-inspired epic, as well as one of Coheed's best video clips, I had my fingers crossed for this album.

In true Coheed fashion, the first track "The Hollow" is an introductory melody with a Rhodes piano and the signature sci-fi creepiness of past releases; it does what a Coheed introduction is meant to do: Introduce you to the next chapter of The Amory Wars storyline.

"Key Entity Extraction I: Domino the Destitute" follows, being the longest track on the album clocking at 7 minutes and 51 seconds. Even though the majority of fans would have heard this single by now - it's still worth noting that Claudio Sanchez's voice is much more energized than the previous Co&Ca efforts.
