Forever by Code Orange
Guerino’s rating: 6/10. In a month that has been really poor within the metal scene, this release from Code Orange stands out because of its good qualities: nice songs, an audible sense of anger, nice production.
Favourite song: Bleeding in the Blur
From Spin: Forever throws some interesting surprises that pay off immensely. The majority of the record is solid beat downs and devastating instrumentals. At times the sound is ripping away like a buzz saw, or slowly turning its gears with immense weight. What helps make Forever a solid release though are the odd surprises within it. These surprises take the listener out of that constant crunch and hardcore slam, and present really terrific spins that are way out there. And with everything together, comes one beastly collection of jams.
From Pitchfork: with their third LP and major-label debut, the hardcore band Code Orange offer up compelling, caustic, and occasionally even catchy evidence that they have earned their alpha-dog scene posturing.
