Most of you have probably never heard of Claudio Sanchez (although I know Allie from Brit Nails has), but he is the lead singer and guitarist for Coheed and Cambria, a prog-rock band. He is also a science-fiction author, and all of the books and graphic novels he has written with Peter David follow the same storylines as the albums. I originally fell in love with the music after hearing Welcome Home, but recently read this book too, and am now saving my pennies to buy the rest of the novels :) The picture above is the book cover I (roughly) based my design on.
"An ebony band was curved across the entirety of the skies above Heaven's Fence. It was absolutely massive, as if someone had just reached into the firmament with unprecedented fury and ripped out an entire strip of reality, leaving a vast, gaping arc of nothingness in its stead. It was like a gigantic, pulsing open wound. A massive black hole seething with smoke and gas. It had no beginning, no end, and seemed as if it could swallow the entirety of Heaven's Fence with absolutely no trouble" - Taken from Year of the Black Rainbow.
Naturally, I have to share a couple of my favourite songs from the album with you, even though I doubt it will be many people's cup of tea. For those of you with an open mind, or who just like rock music, I have seen these guys live and they are amazing. If you get the chance, definitely go and see them!
