David Straw's Top 10 Albums Of 2015


Parkway Drive Coheed and Cambria Enter Shikari While She Sleeps Bring Me The Horizon

Counterparts - Tragedy Will Find Us, Vision of Disorder - Razed to the Ground, Bring Me The Horizon - That's The Spirit

10. Counterparts - Tragedy Will Find Us
Staunch defenders of their metalcore tag, Counterparts might have a bit of trouble keeping it, given that Tragedy Will Find Us is at its best when it feels like a pure hardcore record. Stillborn & Thread start the album with style, while the lilting guitar intro Burn bridges the gap between the single and Stranger perfectly.
Collapse is Tragedy.'s finest moment, though. Emotionally charged, it's the most 'metal' track on the album that builds to a fitting crescendo.
They sound excellent live, too. Joining Stick To Your Guns and Stray From The Path (we'll get to them later) for a UK tour in February, it'd be a sin to miss Counterparts, if this record is anything to go by.

9. Vision of Disorder - Razed to the Ground
Over the past couple of years, there's been a definite sense that metalcore is beginning to have run its course. Fortunately, all it needed was for one of the bands who crafted it in the first place to release an album to remind everyone just how good it can be.
That band is Vision of Disorder, and that album is Razed to the Ground.
Heart of Darkness and Red on the Walls are vintage VoD, white hot and delivered hard, while Electric Sky could be VoD covering Pantera covering Black Sabbath. Yeah, really.
Tim Williams' vocals are as strong as ever, and it's his lashings of Layne Staley-esque lines that lift the album even more.
Razed to the Ground is an album that'll pass so many by, while paler imitations shine brighter in the mainstream conscious, and for a record as good as this, that's a crying shame.

Coheed and Cambria - The Color Before The Sun Album Review


To say that Coheed and Cambria have been committed to their ongoing Armory Wars concept is an understatement to the extreme. The seven-album arc has dictated their direction over nearly two decades, originally gave the outfit their name and cemented their status as one of rock's biggest cult bands.

Coheed and Cambria - The Color Before The Sun Album Review

Now, with The Color Before The Sun, they've stepped outside it for the very first time, and it's an absolute triumph. Opening an album that conjures a rollercoaster of emotion, there's an evident sense of freedom to The Island, which is mirrored throughout the record.

It feels not only like the Coheed album that we were waiting for, but the one that they were waiting for, too.

Coheed And Cambria Help Superfan Avoid Homelessness


Coheed and Cambria

Rockers Coheed and Cambria have helped a female superfan save her home after pledging $3,000 (£1,875) to her crowdfunding campaign to help with her mortgage.

Cyndi Crouch, who co-runs a fansite for the Welcome Home stars, recently appealed to the public for financial help via a GoFundMe.com page after falling behind on her bills.

News of her campaign was brought to the attention to Coheed and Cambria and the musicians immediately decided to hand over the money to help Crouch reach her $3,500 (£2,188) goal.

Ex-coheed And Cambria Rocker Sentenced To House Arrest


Coheed and Cambria Michael Todd

Former Coheed and Cambria bassist Michael Todd has been sentenced to serve a year under house arrest after pleading guilty to armed robbery charges.

The rocker was arrested in July, 2011, after holding up a pharmacy in Attleboro, Massachusetts, prior to a Coheed and Cambria concert, and making off with six vials of high-strength painkiller Oxycontin after claiming he had a bomb.

He appeared in Fall River Superior Court on Monday (11Jun12) and confessed to counts of robbery and unlawful possession of prescription drugs, and was ordered to serve one year under home confinement.

A judge also placed the 31 year old on three years' probation and told him he must continue treatment for his addiction issues and submit to random drug testing.

Eppard Rejoins Coheed And Cambria


Coheed and Cambria

Rockers Coheed and Cambria have reenlisted former drummer Josh Eppard, five years after he left the group to battle addiction issues.

The stars have asked Eppard to rejoin the band as they record a new album after parting ways with percussionist Chris Pennie last month (Oct11).

And the rockers admit they're taking a "giant leap of faith" given Eppard's history of drug abuse.

A message on the band's website states, "As the songs for the new record began twisting into shape, it slowly became apparent that these songs were very dynamic, and could truly flourish with the groove-oriented approach that Josh naturally brings to the table. We also missed Josh as a person, but this isn't about nostalgia; it's about who we are now, and what we can achieve musically and as a family, together going forward.

Coheed And Cambria Drummer Quits


Coheed and Cambria Michael Todd

Rockers Coheed and Cambria have lost another bandmate after parting ways with drummer Chris Pennie, just three months after firing troubled bassist Michael Todd.

The stars dismissed Todd in August (11), shortly after he was arrested and charged with armed robbery for allegedly holding up a pharmacy in Attleboro, Massachusetts before a Coheed and Cambria gig.

Now founding members Claudio Sanchez and Travis Stever have lost Pennie, who has announced plans to focus his efforts on other projects, including his work with hard rock bands Return to Earth and Fight Mannequins.

A statement released by the duo reads: "Tough decisions were made today that will help shape this band for the coming years. We extend our deepest appreciation to Chris Pennie for an incredible journey."

Michael Todd Arrested For Robbery


Michael Todd Coheed and Cambria Soundgarden

Rocker Michael Todd has been arrested for robbery moments before his band Coheed and Cambria was due to play a gig supporting Soundgarden.

The group is one of several opening acts on the Black Hole Sun hitmakers' reunion tour but caused controversy on Sunday (10Jul11) when bass player Todd was held by cops at a venue in Attleboro, Massachusetts.

He is accused of holding up a pharmacy in the city by claiming he had a bomb and demanding bottles of high-strength painkiller Oxycontin.

Cops allege Todd made off with six vials of the drug before heading to the Comcast Center by cab to play the gig - but he was arrested before taking to the stage after officers tracked the vehicle.
