This weeks song of the week comes from one of my all time favorite bands, Coheed & Cambria. They just recently dropped there 5th studio album entitled "Year Of The Black Rainbow" on Tuesday, and its a amazing album full of emotion, adventure, and insite of the characters that Claudio Sanchez has created in this saga known as The Amory Wars... The song I chose is my favorite song from the album, titled "Far." "Far" is a song t hat fits the story's never ending search of love, in the midst of the inevitable end to come to the world. And the latest album is the prequel to the entire story that started with "Second Stage Turbine Blade."

A little trivia going along with this song, Back when Coheed was working on there 3rd full length album "Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume I: From Fear Through The Eyes Of Madness"(yes... that is the albums title...), The band was going through a lot of personal crisis, with the loss of a dear family member and band therapist, stress with the rising fame, and loss of love, it was an album that Claudio wrote with his, now wife, in mind... And Welcome Home was written just for her... How scary is that?! But this song, is the combination of his love for her, and a testament of how much they have endured as a couple while in this great band...

Far is an emotionally gripping song, that allows the listener to be placed into the emotional battle of love ever-lasting from one to his love... Its rides upon a drum part that I think is a great reputation of that feeling of love one may get with a hard yet soft pounding of the heart, as you come to that point of emotion. Fallowed by beautiful yet slightly haunting lyrics stating that "no matter the distance" our love will ultimately endure, "no matter how far." Great melody, beautiful harmonies with lyric and string... its definitely a fave of mines... enjoy :)
