The Amory Wars (the story arc prevalent in the music of Coheed and Cambria) is named after the street on which its author, Claudio Sanchez, lived as a child. Philologists, however, will note a second connection that is likely unintended but uncannily accurate.

The Latin root word “amor” translates as “love”. What better title to encircle the tale of a universe whose destruction comes by a chain of events begun by a desperate act of love? This theme is blatantly recurrent through the entire saga, and for all its sci-fi grandiosity the Amory Wars remains an archetypal testament to sacrifice, hope, and redemption in the name of love.

Unintentional, maybe… but fitting.
