Coheed and Cambria

This is an awesome band who I literally feel attached too.
There is a giant back story that centres around this band; Coheed and Cambria being main characters alongside Claudio ( the main character ) and his uncle Jesse. There is many more characters but long story short, there is a universe with many different planets, an evil guy who becomes power hungry, a professor that tries to stop him and an unwilling hero (Claudio). The songs do an excellent job of capturing the story line and with the help of the lyrics, Claudio's (lead singer's name is the same as the hero's) explanations, and other peoples thoughts, they help bring the songs to life and give each one a purpose. I think I feel so connected to this band is because it is much more than music, it's a story, it plays out as if it were a book (which there are comics based on it), you can see it in your mind as if it were a movie and you eagerly anticipate the outcome of the characters and the story lines. Each release of an album was like a book or movie release to me. The song I feel embodies this the most would be,"Everything Evil," off of their first album, "The Second Stage Turbine Blade."
