The Afterman: Descension is the seventh studio album by Coheed and Cambria. It is the second part of a double album, the first part of which is The Afterman: Ascension.
The deluxe version of the album was released with a coffee-table book co-written by band member Claudio Sanchez and writer Peter David, intended to give a song-by-song experience of the concept album. The album follows the Amory Wars storyline, and concentrates on the character Sirius Amory. Chronologically, this album precedes Year of the Black Rainbow, which itself was the prequel to the previous records, making it the earliest story in the Amory Wars, even predating the Mage Wars.
