About this album

The Second Stage Turbine Blade is the first studio album released by rock band Coheed and Cambria. It was originally released on February 5, 2002 through Equal Vision Records. It is the second part of a five-part pentalogy, telling the story of The Amory Wars. It was re-released on September 20, 2005 with three previously unreleased bonus tracks. All lyrics written by Claudio Sanchez, all music composed by Coheed and Cambria. Note: On the standard ten-track edition, the hidden track “IRO-bot” is contained in “God Send Conspirator”; however, on the deluxe edition, it is contained in the “Everything Evil” demo. The album introduces the husband and wife characters Coheed and Cambria, the characters from whence the band’s name originates. Man and wife Coheed and Cambria are used as the centerpiece to enable Supreme Tri-Mage Wilhelm Ryan’s attempt at destroying his archrival Mage, Mariah Antillarea. Due to a memory swiping years ago, the couple are led to believe that their former lives have now come back to haunt them. They’re told by General Mayo Deftinwolf (Ryan’s Right hand) that they were long ago implanted with a great threat to Heaven’s Fence, The Monstar Virus. A virus with the ability to turn its host (Coheed) into a being powerful enough to drain the Keywork’s energy sources to spark Armageddon, while their dear old counterpart, Inferno was given the only means to unlock it. Through more lies, they are led to believe their children have genetically acquired a mutated form of the virus, the Sinstar.

    I've learned to appreciate every CoCa album in its own way, but this is one of the better ones for pure quality. More intricate instrumentation and song progression than any of their other albums. Plus, the storyline to SSTB is the poo, but that just makes me a biased Coheed fanboy. :P

    Don't be silly, this album isn't even sentient or even semi-intelligent. It doesn't have the capacity to hate. Stupid album.

    I never really appreciated this album until I'd listened to it a few times. It's a weird album, but once you listen to it and start to get into the sound of it, it's just perfect and I can understand why people say it's their best.

    Coheed's best album by far, pretty underrated compared to their other stuff as well.

    @ ElizaPinchley - Claudio is infinitely better than Cedric. Okay, Cedric's not terrible, but he can get so annoying sometimes - "Aberinkula" being the prime example. And Claudio is just terrific.

    That was what I was saying, Midrel. This is best, followed VERY CLOSELY by IKSOSE:3, then GA1 and GA2. YOTBR, however, probably comes right after IKS. I'm loving that album.

    @Rowan: Disagree, at least in as much as IKSoSE is concerned. That one, and this, are both the best.

    Delirium Trigger's already always been my favorite Co&Ca song anyway.

    Yeah I'm beginning to like this more than IKSoSE3, actually.
