The Afterman: Ascension is the sixth studio album by American progressive rock band Coheed and Cambria. It is the first part of a double album, the second part of which is The Afterman: Descension. The band took seven months to record the albums between 2011 and 2012, released a live acoustic version of "Key Entity Extraction V: Sentry the Defiant" (which appears on The Afterman: Descension) in February 2012, and announced a release date of October 9 later that year.

The Afterman: Ascension is the first part of a two-part side-story set in the same universe as Coheed and Cambria’s ongoing storyline. The story of this album focuses on cosmonaut Sirius Amory and his continuing studies into the nature of the Keywork, the mysterious light-like energy that holds the Heaven’s Fence galaxy together

All lyrics from The Afterman: Ascension album, popular Coheed And Cambria songs with tracklist and information about album. Album The Afterman: Ascension (2012). by Coheed And Cambria. Labels V2, Everything Evil Records. Josh Eppard, Claudio Sanchez. Chondra Sanchez, Madeline Birnbaum.

Genre: Progressive Rock. The Afterman: Ascension" starts a new chapter in the Amory Wars saga! While this may be their shortest record, it still has the key fundamentals of a Coheed and Cambria project. Driving guitar riffs, great vocals from Claudio, a compelling story and some of the band’s catchiest choruses yet! Fav Tracks: Holly Wood the Cracked; Domino the Destitute; Goodnight, Fair Lady; Vic the Butcher; Evagria the Faithful. Least Fav Track: The Hollow.

Coheed and Cambria is a decisively difficult band to write about in a succinct or singular manner. With all of its triumphs and downfalls, The Afterman: Ascension seems to mark a turning point in the band's career in a "back to basics" sort of way without being overly cliché by (mostly) shifting focus away from the runaway elements that stretched YotBR so thin and left a sort of "phoned in" feeling to much of Good Apollo IV: II.

Coheed and Cambria continue their career-long Amory Wars story arc with their new album The Afterman: Ascension, the first of a two-part double album, The Afterman. Coheed and Cambria pack Ascension with theatrics and grandiose instrumentation for their sci-fi saga, but while title track The Afterman creates a lush, sprawling cosmic landscape, tracks like Mothers of Men and Key Entity Extract III: Vic The Butcher rip with jagged metal riffs, impending walls of booming drums and frontman Claudio Sanchez’s mighty shriek.

Summary: The latest concept album for the New York rock band is the first of a planned double album (The Afterman: Descension is scheduled for Feb 2013) about Sirius Amory's discovery of what is holding the Keywork together.
