CRITIC REVIEWS

Exclaim!

With their latest offering, Forever, they've surpassed themselves on multiple fronts. By incorporating unconventional dynamics, sounds and structuring, the band have pushed their sound to new and interesting places.

GIGsoup

Code Orange prove with “Forever” that they have no desire to be chained down by the conventions of hardcore and metal. They have uprooted themselves from genre tropes to build something entirely original.

Northern Transmissions

While still comfortable razing speakers with violent rhythms and slash-and- burn licks, Code Orange’s latest also successfully colours outside the confines of metalcore.

The Needle Drop

Code Orange successfully pushes the metalcore envelope on their first album for Roadrunner Records.

With their third LP and major-label debut Forever, Code Orange have offered up compelling, caustic–occasionally, even catchy–evidence that their claims of intra-scene superiority are, for the most part, justified.

A.V. Club

Despite its ridiculous lyrical moments, Forever advances the trend of mashing together disparate styles in metal and hardcore.

I can't believe I let this pass me by last year. Definitely the best metalcore band working not named Converge.

Favorite tracks: Real, Spy, Bleeding in the Blur, The New Reality

Code Orange have finally found a sound that not only gives them the creative freedom to be as evil and as brutal as they want, they've also found a way to make that sound memorable, fun, strange, and punishingly experimental in a lot of ways that not many metal-core bands do. It sounds like a metal-core album through the pulverizing eye of a digital blender, and creates a doomed-filled atmosphere that is unparalleled right now in metal.
