Westland Covers Coheed and Cambria
Purevolume got Westland to cover Coheed and Cambria's "A Favor House Atlantic." You can watch it here.

Patton Oswalt on bass.

So surprised that this wasn't a terrible cover.

Good job.

Uhm, why does this exist?
It's requested because people thought it'd sound exactly like the original and behold!;It sounds _exactly_ like the original.

solid cover, but sweet heavens are those vocals overproduced. doesn't even sound like a person singing.

Wow! Almost as good as the original.

he wanted to prove he didn't sound like claudio? ha

Hey guys...

I don't know if you know this, but the singer of Westland sounds exactly like Claudio from Coheed. It makes this cover sound almost spot on.

Lmao I thought the same exact thing

And considering I never heard this band before and now i think he sounds like Claudio...

First off, Coheed is my favorite band so I'm extremely biased.
That being said, I don't like this cover... I understand what they're trying to do (and they do it successfully), but since they're not trying to make it their own it's only a sub-par version of a great song. The singer is way more nasally than Claudio and after going back and listening to the original, he just doesn't sing with the same passion that Claudio does.
I know I'm being way too hard on the guys, I know they're just having fun and it really isn't a bad cover.
