8-Bit Metal Mondays: I Guess I Do Like Whiny Singers

Early last year, I got to see Slipknot play their first proper arena show at the Palace of Auburn Hills. They had done Cobo Arena a few times, but Cobo barely qualifies as an arena. Now it's just a place that stuff happens to be planned there three times a year. Anyway, Slipknot at the Palace was one of their best shows ever, but they brought along an odd opener: Coheed and Cambria.

What little I had heard of C&C, I just didn't like one bit. It was too simple. It was radio friendly. It had the most annoying singer I had ever heard. And the cited Iron Maiden as their one of their main influences? Maybe of they mistakenly put a Shinedown cd inside the case for 7th Son of a 7th Son, but Jeebus! Did I hate these guys going in.

Well, Coheed must of known that I was coming and had a bag full of hate with me, because the band played their heavier songs exclusively for their entire set, thus making me a partial convert. I'll listen to their hard rock, but their poppy crap can go lick an orifice.

And thus, that leads me to this week's bleepy tune, Coheed and Cambria's Welcome Home.
