Coheed and Cambria in New Tim Burton Film

Prog act Coheed and Cambria has just announced that the song "Welcome Home," from their 2005 release "Good Apollo I'm Burning Star IV, Vol. 1," has been featured in the trailer for the forthcoming Tim Burton-produced / Shane Acker directed animated film "9."

"We are really pleased about this, as we aren’t just a part of something we don’t believe in for the sake of a bigger audience," said a press release from the band this morning. "We are psyched about this movie! We are all fans of Tim Burton, and Shane Acker’s original short entitled “9”, was brilliant, and even Timur Bekmambetov of “Wanted” is a producer on this movie. So obviously we are really proud to be on the trailer."

The film is scheduled for release in theatres March 09, 2009.

coheed are so talented, and they don't care who likes them. they just make good progressive rock albums. the only prog act out right now that i like better are the mars volta. i am a grind/death metal fan thru and thru, but i definitely cant deny the talent and the work ethic of coheed. they'll even go on tour with a band like slipknot knowing that 3/4 of the meatheads there are going to be obnoxious during there set.

Tim Burton films are great. As for Coheed and Cambria, I honestly haven't taken the time to listen to any of their stuff (except maybe 2-3 songs or so). But I personally think that the music included in the trailer sounded excellent. Maybe it's because it was instrumental lol. The news is that they have created sound for a movie; although the band in general may not be to everyone's liking, the music in the film is the focus and it sounds pretty cool.

"Welcome Home" is the song that got me interested in Coheed and Cambria. It has an epic feel to it that I find lacking in many bands who might be considered in the same genre. Upon hearing the rest of the album I very quickly realized this band was not for me. Best of luck to them, but I won't be listening.

People that bash Co & Ca tend to be people that like to hear the same 'ol sh** over and over again. Coheed does something other than scream a bunch of nonsensical garbage and they suck? Give me a break! They take the time out to put together albums that incorporate all kinds of melodies. They care about what they put out.

Anyone can pick up a guitar and play and scream rah rah. It takes true artists to put together what they have.

...and I am sure those throwing insults out there haven't been to a Coheed show - as they are freakin' crazy.

With that said, I don't think Slipknot and Coheed should be playing the same show. They will be here in New York next month and I am not going BECAUSE of Slipknot. Both bands have different demographics that they target and the complicated intelligence just will not go over well with Slipknot fans.

Everyone has different tastes in music. It is what it is.

This band is amazing!!!!....at least until the fa**ot eunuch starts to sing. Then it all goes to sh**. Actually, the only good song they made (and this is if they killed the singer) was Welcome Home.

im sorry but Coheed and Cambria are not progressive. That title should not be bestowed on Coheed. I can see why the lead singer's brother left the band and started a real prog band, 3.

Neil Gaiman. Happens to be my wife's favorite author. I'm actually pretty sure she would divorce me for him. Him or Rob Zombie, kind of a toss up.

Oh, and if you are doing an study on Graphic Novels I have to list some besides just the Sandman series (which is absolute genius btw):)
Watchmen, From Hell, The Killing Joke (honestly anything by Alan Moore, my favorite author) The Dark Knight Returns, the whole Sin City series, Ronin, LITERALLY anything Tim Sales and Jeph Loeb collaborated on, Kingdom Come (excellent on every level), the newer Dark Horse run of Conan, the New Avengers series, Arkham Asylum, Justice by Alex Ross and Tim Kreuger, and I cannot stress The Walking Dead enough. Insanely good. Hell this is a good list, I could literally go on all night.

Tim Burton is god in movie-maker form. Coheed and Cambria are actually a decent band despite whatever nonsense you may think. Slipknot are balls and rubbish. Oh, and Led Zep and Rush are fantastic, of course.

Hey Netro can you give me a run down of what you mean by Graphic Novel? Comics are a really American thing to me, we never had them growing up. But in any case I read Watchmen last year and thought it was great, great art, great story, great philosophical content.

Well, to be honest, Graphic Novel is just a fancy name for big comic books. Usually they are either written with the intention of being released in longer form or a compilation of existing comic issues. Usually created more durable as well, such as hardcover or cardboard backing instead of the usual newsstand magazine format. The term "graphic novel" has never really been strictly defined and is sometimes used to describe more mature comic-book content. I myself have always felt that the idea of comics being a sub-par or immature literary style has created the need to set the more mature stories apart from the norm using this term. But after reading a comic compilation like "Watchmen" you can see how either format can convey a story with as much creativity, social relevance, and character development as any other style of literary art. Watchmen is the pinnacle of comic-form. To list it as simply one of the best comic books I've ever read is to do it a disservice. It's simply great literature.

Thanks for filling me in on that. Definitely man, can't say I have a knowledge of others but as far as a first pick sounds like I didn't do too bad! In a way I feel the same about FFVII - it's to bad both get the stigma of being videogames/comic books when they are pieces of art that obliterate 90% of "traditional" art. So if I had to pick another to try from your list above what you suggest?

If you want to stick with the superhero stories, I'd try The Dark Knight Returns or Kingdom Come. Both are set in a dystopian future setting using well known DC characters. Very dark and gritty though. Kind of a tearing down of the idea of the superhero. If you want more realistic (I guess the term is subjective talking comics) I'd try From Hell, the Sin City series or The Walking Dead. All really good.

Seperate entities. The movie has nothing to do with the graphic novel. The book is actually about an older, more bitter Bruce Wayne and his compulsion to become Batman again. His return actually sparks all the old rivalries, hatreds and emotions among the other characters in Gotham. It's not a very pretty story really. For me I felt it was almost as much a social commentary on the way society is now as much as a superhero story.

Netro, Watchman (just finished this, I'm undecided actually, Veidt's plot seems a little farfetched for such a realistic look at superhero psychology/dynamic) and The Killing Joke are both on my reading list, but since it's supposed to sweep the genre, I'm also reading titles like Maus, Persepolis, Stuck Rubber Baby, American Splendor, Fun Home, Kings in Desguise...plus theoretical books by Will Eisner (I may even reread some Spirit compilations and A Contract with God), Scott McCloud.

Graphic Novels began as Netro said, compilations of popular comics, but they've evolved into their own realm recently. Most of the later titles I mentioned were written with more fluid plotlines because they were conceptualized and constructed more like a regular novel would be.
